The main problems addressed in this paper are the delivery of acetone vapor and the exploration of applying PLIF to aerodynamics.
With prior Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, we conducted a retrospective case review of patients who had undergone PLIF and TLIF from January 2009 to April 2012 by searching under the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code 22630 (Posterior and Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody fusion).
Since then TLIF is an increasingly popular treatment for degenerative lumbar conditions, it's unilateral posterior alone approach enables anterior column stabilisation and 360o fusion, thus reducing the morbidity associated with posterior and anterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF and ALIF)5.
A variety of surgical procedures have been used for the management of the disorder; which include Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF), Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF), and posterolateral fusion and Posterior Instrumentation (PLF).
These consist of posterolateral fusion, interbody fusion (ALIF, TLIF, PLIF, XLIF) techniques, 360 degrees fusion (Anterior and posterior).
It connected primarily with the fact that there are various implantation techniques, based on the front (ALIF), the lateral (TLIF) and the posterior (PLIF) access to the spine.
investigate the performance of the k - [epsilon] model against PIV and PLIF experiments for the propagation of turbulent jets.
The stimulation techniques were verified both by using an active computer model of stimulus flow to examine the accuracy of the stimulus operation as well as by directly observing the stimulant flows' restrictions exclusively to the three respective zones on the flagellum by means of planar laser-induced fluorescence (PLIF).
Further, the team acquired Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF) measurements in the combustor; some of only a few sets of PLIF measurements collected at engine relevant conditions.
The Company has also developed procedural solutions that completely redefine and improve upon traditional procedures like TLIF, PLIF, Posterior Fixation, and ALIF.
