Insertion Length of Umbilical Catheters Umbilical catheters, inserted through the umbilical artery and vein of newborn babies at birth, are crucial in neonatal care of sick babies. They a...
External warming is routinely used in general surgery to offset the deleterious effects of hypothermia. It entails deployment of a disposable, external heating blanket attached to a regula...
Ascites (accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity) is a common problem which can lead to distressing symptoms. When caused by cancer, management options are chemotherapy, diuretics an...
The Study is on short implants (OsseoSpeed™) compared to standard length implants (OsseoSpeed™) with bone substitution. The hypothesis is that the use of short implants in posterior m...
The aim of this study is to clinically and radiographically compare the performance of short (6 mm-long) versus long (≥11 mm-long) dental implants placed in the interforaminal region of ...
Understanding microhabitat preferences of animals is critical for effective conservation, especially for temperate-zone bats, which receive fitness benefits from selecting optimal roost microhabitats....
Wild rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia L.) is a leafy vegetable appreciated for its characteristic sensory properties which are mainly due to the presence of glucosinolates (GSLs). Short-term exposure to ...
Most bacteria swim in liquid environments by rotating one or several flagella. The long external filament of the flagellum is connected to a membrane-embedded basal body by a flexible universal joint,...
The styloid process (SP) is a slender cylindrical bony projection of the temporal bone with two ligaments and three muscles attached to it. Symptomatic SP elongation is also referred to, as Eagle's Sy...

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
A period of arrested growth or development in animals that is triggered by external conditions, such as length of day, extreme temperatures, or reduced food availability. It can occur at the embryonic, larval, pupal, or adult stage, depending on the species.
The outer part of the hearing system of the body. It includes the shell-like EAR AURICLE which collects sound, and the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL, the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE, and the EXTERNAL EAR CARTILAGES.
Variation occurring within a species in the presence or length of DNA fragment generated by a specific endonuclease at a specific site in the genome. Such variations are generated by mutations that create or abolish recognition sites for these enzymes or change the length of the fragment.
In utero measurement corresponding to the sitting height (crown to rump) of the fetus. Length is considered a more accurate criterion of the age of the fetus than is the weight. The average crown-rump length of the fetus at term is 36 cm. (From Williams Obstetrics, 18th ed, p91)
