penile prosthesis

An FDA Class 3 medical device composed of silicone polymers designed to allow penile erection. See Erection.
Penile prosthesis types
Semirigid A sausage surrogate Pros << prone to infection and complications, eg mechanical failure Cons Equipment is always on standby, and may be difficult to conceal
Inflatable PI has a fluid reservoir that is surgically placed under the abdominal musculature, a pump in the scrotum, and inflatable cylinders in the penis; when 'yellow alert' goes to 'red alert', the Pt pumps up, transferring the fluid–usually saline into the cylinders; following appropriate use, the cylinders are emptied by means of a deflate button; of 500 reoperations for inflatable PIs, 64% required therapy for mechanical failure, 19% for surgical complications, and 10% for infections JAMA 1992; 267:2578mn&p
Intermediate A flexible cylinder; no moving parts; rises to the occasion by repeated compression of tip; 'at ease' achieved by bending device in half The Man's Health Book, M Oppenheim, Prentice-Hall, 1994
PIs have been available since 1973; ± 30 000 ♂ receive penile implants/year; the FDA receives ± 5000 complaints/year about PIs; most recipients are in their 50s and 60s, often the result of DM

intermediate cell mass
intermediate filaments
intracellular protein fibers which are part of the cytoskeleton in eukaryotic cells.
intermediate host
especially in parasitology, a host in which the parasite undergoes a stage, usually the larval or nonsexual stage, in its development. The host may be an insect vector which also acts as the transmitting medium, or another insect or animal species which is a passive enhancer, the infection being spread by other means.
intermediate junction
see zonula adherens.
intermediate mesoderm
mesoderm located just lateral to the somites, uniting the paraxial and lateral plate mesoderm.
intermediate sheep footrot

Patient discussion about intermediate

Q. Is there a connection between Epstein-Barr Virus and Fibromyalgia and where can I find information? I was diagnosed with EBV 10 years ago and got diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Depression 5 yrs ago-is there a connection and if so where can I obtain information. If anyone can help-Thank You!

A. EBV is a herpes virus. And there are arguments from both sides if it has a connection or not to Fibromyalgia, some articles say that , some say the other. The truth is that for the patient it doesn’t mater. If you have it you have to deal with it and it doesn’t mater how it showed up. This mater to the researches.

Q. What is the difference between MD an ND? I saw an ad for some pain reliving therapy with the degree ND attached to the therapist name. Is it the same as MD? Is this therapist a doctor? What does it mean?

A. You can read more about it in wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_of_Naturopathic_Medicine . You should notice that in many states this degree isn’t regulated, so essentially anyone can entitle himself as ND.

Although a leader is an intermediator, he does not need to supervise, and so, unlike a monitor, he does not have to rely upon a hierarchical form.
Transitory information must be synthesised on a recurrent basis, however, Each period the intermediator faces the same problem of how to synthesise information on the demand factor and the supply factor in order to decide what output to order and what prices to quote.
The advantage of the intermediator is that he has a wider vision of the situation than the buyer and seller with whom he trades.
A typical intermediator deals with fewer sources of supply than of demand.
If the market for supplies is basically competitive then an intermediator who is dissatisfied can always switch to a different producer.
An alternative to acquisition is for the intermediator to build his own production plant in competition with his existing supplier.
There are three main reasons why, notwithstanding this, the intermediator may wish not only to invest in a plant of his own but also to rely on it exclusively for his supplies.
The intermediator may be unsure whether he can trust the producer to match the specification.
To assure quality, the intermediator could, of course, insist on supervising the production operation.
The intermediator may require the producer to invest in specific equipment, or incur other forms of set up cost, in order to customise the product to his requirements (Klein, Crawford and Alchian 1978).
