• annulus
  • and supplying thermal or electromagnetic energy, from an energy source, to heat or induce an electromagnetic field adjacent to the annulus fibrosus sufficient to produce a thermal or electromagnetic effect on the intervertebral disc. (google.es)
  • introducing the flexible guidable region of the probe into the annulus fibrosus of the intervertebral disc at a location immediately adjacent to the region of intervertebral disc to be thermally or electromagnetically treated, wherein the flexible guidable region initially provides the thermal or electromagnetic treatment to the quadrant of the disc containing the region to be treated.

  • Type
  • Compared with saline, ALN administration markedly inhibited the type I collagen, matrix metalloprotease (MMP)-1, and MMP-13 expression levels while increasing the type II collagen and aggrecan expression levels in the disc matrix. (semanticscholar.org)
  • further
  • 3. A method according to claim 1 , wherein the disc further defines a second plane, the second plane being orthogonal to a first plane, whereby the disc is divided by four quadrants. (google.es)
  • Further, longitudinal research on intervertebral disc diseases starting at younger age in foals has to be done to determine whether there is also a natural aging process of the equine intervertebral disc, as seen in other IVDD model species, like humans and dogs. (uu.nl)
