In some, the degree of curve is stable, while in others, it increases over time.
I just read one of the articles published today in your health and fitness section on the Tribune newspaper; 'my penis is bent' and I'm concerned that the initial complaint only mentions the penis geometry without any note of pain or painful erections (which is hardly a downplayed symptom as associated with Peyronie's disease.) I'm curious as to why the complainant was not reassured to a great extent that bent penises are common and sometimes 'anatomically normal' as a degree of curve is not necessarily pathological.
In this paper, the test data was fitted according to equation (6), the fitting degree of curve was judged by the correlation coefficient [R.sup.2] of the fitting curve.
Bracing is the only nonoperative treatment, but this approach only stops the progression of spinal curvature in a growing child and does not typically reduce the degree of curve that is already present.[1] Moreover, most bracing regimens require that braces should be worn 23 h a day, which can cause skin irritation and discomfort.
An accurate Cobb Measurement is important because of the implications that the Cobb Measurement may have in management protocol, which is determined by the degree of curve progression between radiographs.
The PosiGrip accumulation conveyor can be configured to move product around any degree of curve while maintaining non-contact, zero pressure accumulation.
Company's PosiGrip accumulation conveyor can be configured to convey product around virtually any degree of curve, while maintaining non-contact, zero pressure accumulation.
The Posi-Grip accumulation conveyor features non-contact, zero pressure accumulation that stages from the discharge end around virtually any degree of curve. The accumulation zones are driven by motorized rollers, each with a drive card with settings to allow easy adjustment of speed.
Cucumbers, for example, have been classified into A and B classes in accordance with the degree of curve in their shape, with the A label given to the straighter type, and into L and M classes according to their length and weight.
At each site, the degree of curve was determined by measuring the offset in inches from edgeline to the midpoint of a 18.9-m (62-ft) chord.
