  • athletes
  • A common injury that occurs in young athletes that is very similar to a damaged growth plate is the patellar tendon ailment known as Osgood-Sclatter disease (OSD). (faqs.org)
  • In growing athletes, pain in this area, called Osgood-Schlatter disease , is due to irritation of the growth plate. (drhill.com)
  • cracks
  • As the continental crust stretched, the near surface rocks fractured along steeply dipping cracks parallel to the rift known as faults. (wikipedia.org)
  • Formation of cracks and intermetallic growth in die attachments may lead to formation of voids and delamination, impairing heat transfer from the chip die to the substrate and heatsink and causing a thermal failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Harris lines form before adulthood, when bone growth is temporarily halted or slowed down due to some sort of stress (either disease or malnutrition). (wikipedia.org)
  • Achondroplasia (a disorder where bones grow abnormally which can result in short stature as in dwarfism), Spondylolisthesis (a condition in which vertebrae slip forward) and osteoporosis (the most common bone disease in which bone density is lost resulting in bone weakness and increased likelihood of fracture) are some of the most common causes of hyperlordosis.

  • surface
  • 4. The electromagnetic wave shielding thin film of claim 1, further comprising an insulation film disposed on a surface of the metal plate. (freepatentsonline.com)
  • Enamel hypoplasia refers to transverse furrows or pits that form in the enamel surface of teeth when the normal process of tooth growth stops, resulting in a deficit of enamel. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since this is a chemical reaction, any catalytic surface exposed to the plating solution will plate uniformly, provided it meets the criteria established a few paragraphs earlier. (wikipedia.org)
  • The aboral or upper surface may be smooth, granular or spiny, and is covered with overlapping plates. (wikipedia.org)
  • They vary in form, with some bearing external granules, tubercles and spines, but most are tabular plates that fit neatly together in a tessellated manner and form the main covering of the aboral surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • It has been postulated that wrestlers may suffer impaired growth and development due to their fluctuating body weight. (wikipedia.org)
