Clinicians usually think that the diagnosis of an RFB on an intraoperative radiograph is easy and obvious, but often this is not the case.
One possible complication during surgical removal of RFB is perforation of adherent bowels, which may be missed.
In addition, in 88% of the cases where there was an RFB and counts were performed, the counts were falsely called correct.
New technologies are being developed that will hopefully decrease the incidence of RFB. An electronic article surveillance system has been examined, which uses a tagged surgical sponge that can be identified electronically.
RFB should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any postoperative patient who presents with pain, infection or palpable mass.
This could allow the open circuit potential to exceed 1.2V, enhancing the energy density of the RFB," Dr.
To produce long-term improvements in water quality, RFBS must be designed with an understanding of: 1) the processes that remove or sequester pollutants entering the riparian buffer system, 2) the effects of riparian management practices on pollutant retention, 3) the effects of riparian forest buffers on aquatic ecosystems, 4) the time to recovery after harvest of trees or re-establishment of riparian buffer systems, and 5) the effects of underlying soil and geologic materials on chemical, hydrological, and biological processes.
The specification calls for a three-zone buffer system, with each zone having specific purposes as well as interactions with the adjacent zones to provide the overall RFBS function (Figure 3).
Zone 1 of the RFBS is an area of permanent forest vegetation immediately adjacent to the stream channel and encompassing at least the entire stream channel system.
Properly managed, RFBS should provide a high level of control of sediment and sediment-borne chemicals regardless of physiographic region.
The second function of RFBS is to control nitrate in shallow groundwater moving toward streams.
The third function of RFBS is control of dissolved phosphorus (P) in surface runoff or shallow groundwater.
