Summary of "Modified Bilateral Pi Craniectomy Technique for Reduction Cranioplasty: Novel Technique."

Severe hydrocephalic macrocephaly can cause significant morbidity in infants due to positioning difficulties, skin breakdown, and poor cosmesis. Many surgeons over the past decades have described a variety of surgical techniques of reduction cranioplasty. In this article, the authors describe a novel technique for skull reduction cranioplasty with modified bilateral Pi craniectomy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Technique that utilizes low-stringency polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with single primers of arbitrary sequence to generate strain-specific arrays of anonymous DNA fragments. RAPD technique may be used to determine taxonomic identity, assess kinship relationships, analyze mixed genome samples, and create specific probes.

Organisms whose GENOME has been changed by a GENETIC ENGINEERING technique.

A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

A personality assessment technique in which the subject or observer indicates the degree to which a standardized set of descriptive statements actually describes the subject. The term reflects "sorting" procedures occasionally used with this technique.

Any technique by which an unknown color is evaluated in terms of standard colors. The technique may be visual, photoelectric, or indirect by means of spectrophotometry. It is used in chemistry and physics. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
