2. deviation from a straight line, as in a poorly set bone.

an·gu·la·tion

(ang'gyū-lā'shŭn),

2. In orthopaedics, a method of describing the alignment of long bones that have been affected by injury or disease; can be described in both anteroposterior and lateral planes.

angulation

Etymology: L, angulatus, bent
1 an angular shape or formation.
2 the discipline of precisely measuring angles, as in mechanical drafting and surveying.
3 (in radiography) the direction of the useful beam of radiation in relation to the object being radiographed and the film used to record its image. See also horizontal angulation,vertical angulation.

For standardization, only the right ear was used to measure the dimensions, visibility, and angulation because, according to Barut and Aktunc [11], dimensions difFer between the right and left ears.
The Verte-Span device consists of a cylindrical cage available in different sizes combined with spiked endplates with variable degrees of angulation (Figure 2).
The other strain readings from the femoral neck (in 15 [degrees] adduction) were less or similar for all angulations of the surface replacement head, except for the posterior gage reading with varus head positioning where it was approximately 300% greater (Fig.
Patients requiring the type of surgical treatment presented in this paper usually have 1) nonsalvageable TMJ pathology, 2) major retrusion of the mandible, 3) retrusion of the maxilla, 4) anterior vertical maxillary excess and/or posterior vertical maxillary deficiency, 5) high occlusal plane angulation, 6) TMJ and jaw dysfunction, and 7) pain and headaches.
From the pace ending in a particular footprint, the pace beginning with that footprint, and the stride opposite the footprint (made as the opposite foot was brought forward), the pace angulation around the footprint was calculated using the law of cosines.
Persons with amputation were unable to consistently align a prosthetic foot within 1[degrees] of angulation.
With perpendicular screw orientation, angular deflection is limited by the more eccentrically placed screw, as screw offset within the hole results in earlier impingement with angulation.
The one-piece, stopper-shaped device can be inserted quickly, and its flexibility allows me to manipulate my instruments to extreme angulations without crowding one another in the working space, all while maintaining a tight insufflation seal.
It also allows for angulations of up to 16 degrees in all four directions and offers the lowest tabletop height of any catheterization table in the industry.

This mid-sized panel increases system utilization by allowing cardiologists to increase their working field-of-view and more easily perform procedures outside the heart while minimally impacting the angulations, which can be compromised by larger panels.
