For comparison purposes, Table 1 includes different values of torsion responses from the literature and the range of sensitivities from ~0.02 to 0.22 nm/(rad/m) for simple LPFG configurations to ~0.593 to 2.392 nm/(rad/m) for more complex ones.
To assess factors that help to distinguish between genital/paragenital infection and testicular torsion, simple and multiple binary logistic regression analyses were performed on the different laboratory parameters (CRP </> 3 ml/L, WBC </> 10.4 g/L, </> 4 WBC per field in urine, </> 4 Ec per field in urine), time between onset of pain and arrival in the ED, characteristics of pain, localization of pain, and Prehn's sign (positive or negative).
The focus of these is largely on the Torsion System technology , which first debuted exactly thirty years ago in the iconic ZX running range.
The adopted experimental design was in randomized blocks, with treatments distributed in a 2 x 2 factorial scheme, referent to the doses of hydrogen cyanamide (D1: 2.45% [H.sub.2][CN.sub.2], and D2: 2.94% [H.sub.2][CN.sub.2]) and the torsion of canes (with and without), with four replicates and five plants per parcel.
Torsion spring is a key part of suspension system of motorcycles that allows smooth rides on uneven surfaces.
When the finding was torsion due to hydatid (appendix of the testis), 36/39 (71.8%) PS fixed the explored side compared to 11/20 (55%) of PU.
This case reveals a rare and potentially first presentation of polyorchidism with subacute/chronic testicular torsion of the left lateral testicle in a male older than 50 years of age.
In above equation, T is the torsion load represented by a pair of vertical forces F applied at shock towers in opposite directions with distance B.
Omental torsion is a very rare clinical condition having commonly peritonitis signs, in which edema, vascular stasis, ischemia, and necrosis are seen distal to the torsion because of the rotation of the omentum magus around the long axis and deterioration of arterial feeding and venous drainage secondary to this.
Visual acuity, anterior and posterior segment findings, eye movements, angle of deviation, abnormal head positions, oblique muscle functions, and amount of torsion were assessed pre- and postoperatively.
