central tendon of diaphragm

(redirected from centrum tendineum diaphragmatis)

cen·tral ten·don of di·a·phragm

[TA]
a three-lobed fibrous sheet comprising the center of the diaphragm; superiorly it is fused with the fibrous pericardium that provides attachment (insertion) for the moving end of the muscle fibers.

central tendon

, central tendon of diaphragm
The central portion of the diaphragm, consisting of a flat aponeurosis into which the muscle fibers of the diaphragm are inserted.

conjoined tendon

central

pertaining to a center; located at the midpoint.

central artery
of the optic nerve, the source of the retinal artery. See also Table 9.
central channel
the fast-flowing channel through the capillary bed, the rate controlled by the metarterioles which exert a sphincter-like action on the system.
central convulsions
convulsions arising from stimulation of the central nervous system, as distinct from those caused by lesions elsewhere.
central cord syndrome
injury to the central portion of the cervical spinal cord resulting in disproportionately more weakness or paralysis in the forelimbs than in the hindlimbs; pathological change is caused by hemorrhage or edema.
central diabetes insipidus
central European tick-borne encephalitis
central layer
central of the three layers of gray matter in the cerebellum; the principal cell type is piriform.

central projection law
the laws of physics applied to the primary x-ray beam of photons, e.g. the closer the object being x-rayed is to the film the sharper will be its definition.
central respiratory oscillator
pool of nerve cells in the pons and medulla oblongata which are responsible for the rhythmic to-and-fro movements of respiration.
central retinal degeneration

central tarsal bone
the bone of the hock which lies between the proximal and distal rows of tarsal bones.

central vein
the centrally placed drainage vessel of each hepatic lobule, receiving blood from the hepatic sinusoids.
central venous catheterization
insertion of an indwelling catheter into a central vein for the purpose of administering fluid and medications and for the measurement of central venous pressure (see below).
central venous pressure (CVP)
the pressure of blood in the right atrium, measured by an in situ catheter in the right atrium, is a much better guide of the degree of vasogenic peripheral failure than is arterial blood pressure. The technique is used mainly in dogs and cats.
