Surgical anatomy of the petrous pyramid has always been a challenge, especially in the beginning of the training process. Providing an easier, holistic approach can be of help to everyone with interes...
The spleen contains a reservoir of red blood cells that are mobilized into circulation when under physiological stress. Despite the spleen having an established role in compensation to acute hypoxia, ...
Swallow and breathing are highly coordinated behaviors reliant on shared anatomical space and neural pathways. Incremental ascent to high altitudes results in hypoxia/hypocapnic conditions altering re...
Water disinfection is of great importance for human health and daily life. Photocatalysts with high-efficiency, green environmental protection and narrow bandgap are critical for the practical water t...
The trial evaluates the role of ascent protocol on acute mountain sickness and cardio-respiratory physiology during an ascent to Muztagh Ata (7546m). Two groups of mountaineers ascend with...
Regulation of ghrelin, growth hormone and growth factors at high altitude and their change during ascent to high altitude has not been studied in depth yet. The study includes 33 volunteer...
Prospective, randomized study of Summit Porocoat versus Summit DuoFix HA in total hip arthroplasty
The primary objective of this study is: - To evaluate the effect of DN-101 in combination with docetaxel (ASCENT regimen) on survival in metastatic androgen-independent prostate c...
This is a parallel group, multisite prospective clinical study. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether ASCENT enables patients to adhere to the survivorship guidelines and improv...
Straight tubes commencing in the radiate part of the kidney cortex where they receive the curved ends of the distal convoluted tubules. In the medulla the collecting tubules of each pyramid converge to join a central tube (duct of Bellini) which opens on the summit of the papilla.
A slightly alkaline secretion of the endocervical glands. The consistency and amount are dependent on the physiological hormone changes in the menstrual cycle. It contains the glycoprotein mucin, amino acids, sugar, enzymes, and electrolytes, with a water content up to 90%. The mucus is a useful protection against the ascent of bacteria and sperm into the uterus. (From Dictionary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1988)
Fibers that arise from cells within the cerebral cortex, pass through the medullary pyramid, and descend in the spinal cord. Many authorities say the pyramidal tracts include both the corticospinal and corticobulbar tracts.
Projection neurons in the cerebral cortex and the hippocampus. Pyramidal cells have a pyramid-shaped soma with the apex and an apical dendrite pointed toward the pial surface and other dendrites and an axon emerging from the base. The axons may have local collaterals but also project outside their cortical region.
The amount of a particular food one chooses to eat at a single meal. It is different from SERVING SIZE, which is a reference amount of food as defined by an authoritative source, such as the Food Guide Pyramid devised by the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.
