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 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
less underrunning of horn and less likelihood of resulting in chronic lesions than in virulent 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.
