biofragmentable anastomosis ring

Abbreviation: BFR; BAR
An absorbable, temporary surgical implant to join resected loops of bowel. The ring is composed of two parts polyglycolic acid (Dexon) and one part barium sulfate. It dissolves about 3 weeks after implantation when major tissue healing has occurred. The ring is easy to use. Postoperative complications may include leakage and, rarely, intestinal stricture.

The participants were randomly divided into 3 experimental groups with different interventions: a) 4 exercises at 20% of 1RM combined with continuous BFR (LL+CBFR); b) 4 exercises at 20% of 1RM combined with intermittent BFR (LL+IBFR) and c) 4 exercises at 20% of 1RM without BFR (LL).
The ischemia caused by BFR can generate an increase in the metabolites concentration stimulating the muscular hypertrophy and less vasodilatation (6,11).
Using a stratified randomization based on sex, the participants were assigned to one of 3 groups: ML, BFR, or a non-exercising control group (CON).
The BFR is a hefty, 5-shot stainless steel revolver wearing an eye-pleasing, soft-brushed finish.
Forty-eight male Wistar rats, aged 23-24 months and weighing 400-450 g, were randomly divided into 6 groups (8 in each group): the control (CTL) group, which received care without any surgery and exercise training; the sham (Sh) group, which was subjected to surgery without BFR; the BFR group, which was subjected to surgery and restriction of the hind blood flow during activity; the exercise (Ex) group, which did prolonged low-intensity treadmill exercise; the Sh+Ex group, which underwent surgery without BFR and did prolonged low-intensity treadmill exercise; and the BFR+Ex group, which underwent surgery with BFR and did prolonged low-intensity treadmill exercise.
It fits the hand nicely and is "designed with the most correct taper needed for single-action shooting." The new hammer and grip will fit any BFR made since 2000, and you can order them from Magnum Research if you want to add them to your existing revolver.
"BFR will take you anywhere on Earth in less than 60 mins," Mr Musk wrote on Twitter.
He said his firm will put all their resources into building the Interplanetary Transport System, known as BFR or Big F***g Rocket.
He said both projects will use a 350ft rocket currently in development codenamed BFR or Big F*** Rocket.
Musk revealed more details on the spacecraft - dubbed the BFR, or "Big F--king Rocket." If he has his way, Mars colonizers will eventually travel in style in the BFR, which will accommodate around 100 people spread out over 40 cabins, and include large common areas and an entertainment system.
