• distal
  • the sheath positioned radially outside of the cylindrical sleeve to retain the distal and middle portions of said prosthesis in the compressed configuration until deployment. (google.es)
  • 3. The introducer of claim 2 further comprising a first control arrangement to control a length, an axial position and an angular position of said prosthesis distal portion at a desired site in a body vessel lumen by selective engagement of the first control member of the distal retention section with said prosthesis distal portion while retaining the second control member of said prosthesis proximal portion in the cylindrical sleeve. (google.es)
  • wherein
  • 2. The introducer of claim 1 further comprising a third control member attached to the tapered extension of the cylindrical sleeve, wherein the third control member is slidably engaged with the second control member to selectively disengage the cylindrical sleeve from said prosthesis by proximal movement of the third control member and the cylindrical sleeve away from said prosthesis. (google.es)
  • 8. The system of claim 7, wherein the prosthesis is a mesh tube including metal material. (google.com)
  • 9. The system of claim 8, wherein the prosthesis includes knitted thread material. (google.com)
  • prosthetic
  • Rifampin, a wide spectrum antibiotic , has proven to be effective in prosthetic joint infections due to its property to remain fixed to prostheses and resists rapid washout [ 7 , 8 ]. (alliedacademies.org)

  • angular
  • The universal connector is also adapted to facilitate preselected or adjustable universal angular alignment between the first and second axes, that angular relationship then securably lockable to enable the dental prosthesis to be thereafter securely mounted over the prosthesis insert. (google.com)
  • 4. The introducer of claim 2 further comprising a second control arrangement to control a length, an axial position and an angular position of said prosthesis proximal portion at a desired site in a body vessel lumen by selective movement of the third control member. (google.es)
  • radially
  • The prosthesis, held in the radially compressed position by the sheath, can be mounted displaceably on a feed wire or non-axially-displaceably on the insertion end of a probe or a catheter. (google.com)
  • consists
  • The sheath, which can be a meshwork in the approximate form of crocheted material, extends over the entire length of the prosthesis and consists of at least one continuous thread and at least one drawstring. (google.com)
  • A palatal lift prosthesis consists of an oral component that stabilizes and secures the prosthesis and an oropharyngeal extension that superiorly and posteriorly displaces the impaired soft palate. (wikipedia.org)
  • abutment
  • A Rochette bridge is a type of dental prosthesis popular in the 1970s,[citation needed] and described by Alain Rochette in 1973 as a form of resin retained bridge that relied on countersunk holes perforating the metal abutment wing. (wikipedia.org)
  • To enable this, the abutment is shaped as a small connector (a button, ball, bar or magnet) which can be connected to analogous adapters in the underside of the dental prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • retainer
  • This type of bridge fell out of fashion as modern cements and treatments of the retainer intaglio enabled better retention without the loss of strength inherent in perforation of the retainer wing. (wikipedia.org)
  • sheath
  • The device comprises a prosthesis designed as a hollow body compressed against the action of restoring spring forces to a cross section reduced relative to an expanded use position, and held in this position by a strippable sheath. (google.com)
  • After the sheath is stripped, the prosthesis automatically expands to. (google.com)
  • After the sheath is stripped, the prosthesis automatically expands to a cross section corresponding to the use position. (google.com)
  • dysfunctional
  • A palatal lift prosthesis addresses palatopharyngeal incompetence by physically displacing the dysfunctional soft palate in the hope of closing the palatopharyngeal port enough to mitigate hypernasal speech and/or prevent nasopharyngeal regurgitation of liquids or solids during the pharyngeal phase of swallowing. (wikipedia.org)
  • fabrication
  • Because a mechanically displaced soft palate imparts enough force upon a palatal lift prosthesis to dislodge it, dentoalveolar anatomy must be considered prior to the fabrication of a palatal lift prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
