Second Lumen 204

  1. For example, an insufflation gas can be introduced to the colon 20 through the second lumen 204. (Web site)

Neural Keel

  1. This is principally because the teleost trunk neural tube initially forms a solid rod (the neural keel) that later develops a lumen.

Lumen Extending

  1. The catheter may also have a lumen extending between the proximal and distal regions. (Web site)

Lumen 605

  1. Blood flow lumen 605 is surrounded by a deformable wall. (Web site)

  2. The effect of PTX is probably the result of decreased protein leakage from the capillaries to the alveolar lumen. (Web site)
  3. Microscopic observations of lungs of mice infected with B. pertussis showed that the bacteria grow as clusters within the alveolar lumen.

Follicular Lumen

  1. Thyroglobulin, which contains the thyroid hormones, is stored in the follicular lumen until needed. (Web site)

Lumen Diameter

  1. Binary restenosis was defined as stenosis of more than 50% of the lumen diameter in the target lesion. (Web site)

Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum

  1. In eukaryotic cells, disulfide bonds are generally formed in the lumen of the RER (rough endoplasmic reticulum) but not in the cytosol. (Web site)

Lumen Gentium

  1. It is in the saints that "God shows to men, in a vivid way, his presence and his face" (Lumen gentium, n. (Web site)

Arterial Lumen

  1. Generally an atheroma becomes vulnerable if it grows more rapidly and has a thin cover separating it from the bloodstream inside the arterial lumen. (Web site)
  2. We studied 444 men with asymptomatic carotid stenosis shown arteriographically to reduce the diameter of the arterial lumen by 50 percent or more.

Water

  1. Sodium ions and water then follow the chloride ions into the lumen, and the water softens the stool. (Web site)
  2. Therefore, to maintain a charge balance in the lumen, sodium is carried with it, along with water. (Web site)

Intestinal Lumen

  1. Lactulose, a nonabsorbable synthetic sugar that keeps sodium and water inside the intestinal lumen, relieves constipation.
  2. Saline laxatives attract and retain water in the intestinal lumen, increasing intraluminal pressure and thus softening the stool.
  3. More severe disease states include thinning of the bowel, susceptibility to ulcers, fibrosis, contraction, and narrowing of the intestinal lumen. (Web site)

Barium

  1. Barium is an inert substance that coats the internal lining of the bowel and fills up its lumen.

Peptides

  1. These peptides are also highly digestible, therefore reducing their retention time in the lumen of the intestine. (Web site)

Clot

  1. A clot and foreign body removal device is described which comprises a catheter with at least one lumen.

Process

  1. This process continues and more proximal areas follow, allowing the intussusceptum to proceed along the lumen of the intussuscipiens.
  2. The mature spermatozoa are released from the protective Sertoli cells into the lumen of the seminiferous tubule in a process called spermiation. (Web site)

Fragments

  1. The aspiration electrode(s) function mainly to inhibit clogging of the lumen that may otherwise occur as larger tissue fragments are drawn therein. (Web site)
  2. This reduces the volume of the tissue fragments as they pass through suction lumen to minimize clogging of the lumen. (Web site)

Inner

  1. This problem was surmounted in 1999 with the invention of the stratified continuous (inner) lumen, and the kinetic acoustic mechanism in 2002. (Web site)

Wall

  1. However, IVUS enables more accurately visualizing not only the lumen of the coronary arteries but also the atheroma "hidden" within the wall. (Web site)
  2. Inside the testis, from the wall into the lumen, successive stages of spermatogenesis occur, and germ cells are nourished by supporting Sertoli's cells.

Dissection

  1. Side lobes may obscure the true lumen and stent borders, interfering with area measurements and the assessment of apposition, dissection, etc.

Occlusion

  1. Occlusion occurs as a result of coil-induced thrombosis rather than mechanical occlusion of the lumen by the coil. (Web site)
