Multi-laminate annulus fibrosus repair scaffold with an interlamellar matrix enhances impact resistance, prevents herniation and assists in restoring spinal kinematics.

Focal defects in the annulus fibrosus (AF) of the intervertebral disc (IVD) arising from herniation have detrimental impacts on the IVD's mechanical function. Thus, biomimetic-based repair strategies ...

Biomechanical test protocols to detect minor injury effects in intervertebral discs.

Intervertebral discs (IVDs) maintain flexibility of the spine and bear mechanical load. Annulus fibrosus (AF) defects are associated with IVD degeneration and herniation which disrupt biomechanical fu...

The mechanical role of the radial fibers network within the annulus fibrosus of the lumbar intervertebral disc: a finite elements study.

The annulus fibrosus (AF) of the intervertebral disc (IVD) consists of a set of concentric layers composed of a primary circumferential collagen fibers arranged in an alternating oblique orientation. ...

Towards intervertebral disc engineering: Bio-mimetics of form and function of the annulus fibrosus lamellae.

The aging western society is heavily afflicted with intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration. Replacement or repair of the degenerated IVD with an artificial bio-mimetic construct is one of the challeng...

Ovarian Reserve After Ovarian Torsion

Ovarian torsion is a relatively common gynecological emergency, usually presenting as acute lower abdominal pain. Due to patient's presentation diversity, the diagnosis is clinical and req...

Diagnosis of Acute Appendicitis, Ovary Torsion and Inflammation, and Testicular Torsion and Inflammation by Infrared Thermography

Thermal, or infrared, energy is the part of electromagnetic radiation that an observer perceives as heat. Infrared thermography allows us to visualize temperature distribution of the human...

Measurement of Mechanical Properties of the Healing Achilles Tendon With or Without Early Weightbearing

The purpose of this study is to measure the mechanical properties of healing Achilles tendons in humans after early controlled weightbearing, compared with a control group in a randomized,...

Effect of Embryo Mechanical Properties on Clinical Pregnancy After In Vitro Fertilization

The purpose of this study is to determine whether embryo mechanical properties measured after in vitro fertilization can predict clinical pregnancy.

Effect of the Incoportation of Copper and Zinc Nanoparticles Into Dental Adhesives

The hypothesis is that Addition of copper or zinc nanoparticles to a dental adhesive confers antimicrobial and enzymatic degradation-resistant properties, retaining its adhesion mechanical...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Outer portion of the intervertebral disc that surrounds the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS.

An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.

The twisting of the SPERMATIC CORD due to an anatomical abnormality that left the TESTIS mobile and dangling in the SCROTUM. The initial effect of testicular torsion is obstruction of venous return. Depending on the duration and degree of cord rotation, testicular symptoms range from EDEMA to interrupted arterial flow and testicular pain. If blood flow to testis is absent for 4 to 6 h, SPERMATOGENESIS may be permanently lost.

A twisting deformation of a solid body about an axis. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
