Arora, "Omental torsion," Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, vol.
Although in principle there is no direct correlation between grating length (or number of grating planes) and sensitivity performances, it can be advantageous to have the same torsion response with a smaller number of grating planes, in order to induce less damage to the fiber.
Testicular torsion was diagnosed in 9.5% (42) of patients, testicular cancer in 4.3% (19), and symptomatic distal ureterolithiasis in 2.5% (11) of patients [Table 1].
One of the lesser-known adidas shoes to utilize the Torsion System was the Torsion TRDC.
According with the synthesis of the analysis of variance for the results obtained in the first semester of production, it is verified that there was a significant interaction between the torsion of the canes and the doses of hydrogen cyanamide only for the variables production and yield, and the torsion of the canes affected in an isolated manner the variables bud burst rate and number of bunches (Table 1).
