I agree with the author's opinion about the role of sigmoid dolichocolon in the development of ileosigmoid knotting (ISK). As he discussed, a sigmoid volvulus (SV) attack history is present in approximately 25% of patients with ISK . Although sigmoid dolichocolon is the most important factor in the development in SV , it is not the unique affecting factor in ISK and the presence of a hypermobile terminal ileum is more effective in the development of ISK. Consequently, Type II cases with ISK, in which sigmoid colon is active component, constitute approximately 20% of all patients. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

SUPERVISED MACHINE LEARNING algorithm which learns to assign labels to objects from a set of training examples. Examples are learning to recognize fraudulent credit card activity by examining hundreds or thousands of fraudulent and non-fraudulent credit card activity, or learning to make disease diagnosis or prognosis based on automatic classification of microarray gene expression profiles drawn from hundreds or thousands of samples.
A plant subclass of the class Liliopsida (monocotyledons) in the Chronquist classification system. This is equivalent to the Alismatales order in the APG classification system. It is a primitive group of more or less aquatic plants.
Antibodies elicited in a different species from which the antigen originated. These antibodies are directed against a wide variety of interspecies-specific antigens, the best known of which are Forssman, Hanganutziu-Deicher (H-D), and Paul-Bunnell (P-B). Incidence of antibodies to these antigens--i.e., the phenomenon of heterophile antibody response--is useful in the serodiagnosis, pathogenesis, and prognosis of infection and latent infectious states as well as in cancer classification.
The sorting out and classification of patients or casualties to determine priority of need and proper place of treatment.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
