Summary of "Effect of repeated cycles of steam sterilization on the integrity of cannulated surgical screws."

The process of repeated handling and steam sterilization of bone screws and allows debris to deposit on the surface and inside cannulated screws. Individually packaged screws could alleviate these potential problems. This research intended to evaluate the effect that multiple cycles of sterilization may have, if any, on the mechanical integrity of cannulated screws. The results indicate that the mechanical integrity of the screws tested was not compromised.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures to block or remove all or part of the genital tract for the purpose of rendering individuals sterile, incapable of reproduction. Surgical sterilization procedures are the most commonly used. There are also sterilization procedures involving chemical or physical means.

Procedures to reverse the effect of REPRODUCTIVE STERILIZATION and to regain fertility. Reversal procedures include those used to restore the flow in the FALLOPIAN TUBE or the VAS DEFERENS.

Reproductive sterilization without the consent of the patient.

A DNA amplification technique based upon the ligation of OLIGONUCLEOTIDE PROBES. The probes are designed to exactly match two adjacent sequences of a specific target DNA. The chain reaction is repeated in three steps in the presence of excess probe: (1) heat denaturation of double-stranded DNA, (2) annealing of probes to target DNA, and (3) joining of the probes by thermostable DNA ligase. After the reaction is repeated for 20-30 cycles the production of ligated probe is measured.

Bouts of physical irritability or movement alternating with periods of quiescence. It includes biochemical activity and hormonal activity which may be cellular. These cycles are shorter than 24 hours and include sleep-wakefulness cycles and the periodic activation of the digestive system.
