2. American group launched by James Wines, and best known for the designs for the Best Products chain of stores, where unique manipulation of architectural elements made the buildings notorious. One of the most unique, but never realized, was the “highrise of houses,” wherein a neighborhood of complete single-story residences were stacked within a steel superstructure. The later works include exhibits for the Expo ’92, Seville, Spain (1992).

Site

 

in genetics, the part of a gene that is capable of independently mutating and recombining. A site is composed of at least one pair of nucleotides; in viruses containing one strand of RNA or DNA, it is composed of at least one nucleotide.


Site

 

in hydraulic engineering, a segment of a river where the structures of a hydroengineering complex are located and where the pressure front is formed by the structures. There are usually two steps involved in the selection of a site. First, a site region is designated in conformity with a general plan for managing the water of the particular river, and then a site axis is determined. The axis is understood as a strip of a certain width that cuts across the river and valley; it may be straight, that is, perpendicular to the banks of the river, curvilinear, or broken. An optimal choice of the site is arrived at by a comparison, from both a technical and economic point of view, of the various alternatives with due regard for climatic, topographical, hydrological, geological, and construction conditions.

The Portico transcatheter heart valve can be completely resheathed (the process of bringing the valve back into the delivery catheter) allowing physicians to reposition the valve at the implant site or retrieve the valve, before it is released from the delivery system, an advancement over current-generation transcatheter valves.
Leaving the soft tissue intact may also result in significantly shorter surgery time, faster healing and increase the likelihood of normal post-operative skin sensation around the implant site.
Traditional glenoid implants require preparation of the implant site with instruments that require a straight-on surgical axis which means the humeral head has to be transected and removed to gain access to the glenoid.
The most common device-related adverse events in the study included implant site pain (28 percent), paresthesia (15 percent), change in sensation of stimulation (12 percent) and infection (10 percent).
Minor implant site reactions were the most common adverse events and were consistent across the Probuphine and placebo groups
