Influence of anterior chamber depth, anterior chamber volume, axial length, and lens density on postoperative endothelial cell loss.
On the other hand, in another study, sleep apnea patients and healthy subjects were compared and there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of anterior chamber findings such as anterior chamber depth, anterior chamber volume, and anterior chamber angle (11).
The cavities have a given chamber volume which means the PC pump is ideal for batch dosing applications where specific amounts of product must be dosed extremely accurately; for example, dosing tomato sauce directly onto pizza dough or addition of polymers or chemicals to make up tanks.
Refractive and topometric maps obtained with Pentacam (Oculus, Germany) were used to evaluate anterior and posterior corneal axial curvature, corneal volume, central corneal thickness, corneal thickness at the thinnest point, anterior chamber depth, anterior chamber angle, and anterior chamber volume before contact lens fitting.
The combustion chamber volume of the studied heavy-duty diesel engine was found to deviate significantly from the nominal volume calculated from the geometrical dimensions of the engine components.
where N is the air exchange rate, which is the air flow through the chamber (Q) divided by the interior volume of the chamber (V) and L is the loading factor, which is the sample surface area (A) divided by the chamber volume (V).
Additionally, ACD and anterior chamber volume (ACV) values are considered the primary determinants for developing angle-closure [1].
* The small measuring chamber volume normally causes a further significant counter pressure increase during the injection process, which tends to decrease the initial pressure differential across the injector.
The .22 K-Hornet, an old pre-WWII wildcat, is superior to the standard Hornet and I can shoot standard Hornet ammunition in a K-Hornet with no loss of accuracy or velocity--enlargement of the cartridge case as the round fires allows that portion of the charge not ignited by the primer to reorient, and, as that happens, more granules ignite sooner, which offsets the increase in chamber volume. Most importantly, in a gun with appropriate striker energy, when loaded using an appropriate (mild) primer, the case shoulder of the K-Hornet will hold headspace.
This device is designed to maximise wall thickness and graft chamber volume, ensuring optimal contact with the vertebral endplates by both the interbody device and bone graft material.
According to the researchers, a thicker heart muscle and smaller heart chamber volume may increase the risk of age-related heart failure.
