coronary

 [kor´ah-nar-e]
encircling in the manner of a crown; said of anatomical structures such as vessels, ligaments, or nerves.
coronary arteries two large arteries that branch from the ascending aorta and supply all of the heart muscle with blood (see also table of arteries).
 A view of the coronary arterial system. The arteries serving the posterior aspect of the myocardium are shown here in a lighter shade.
coronary artery disease (CAD) atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries, which may cause angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, and sudden death. Both genetically determined and avoidable risk factors contribute to the disease; they include hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, smoking, diabetes mellitus, and low levels of high density lipoproteins (HDL).
coronary heart disease (CHD) ischemic heart disease.
coronary occlusion the occlusion, or closing off, of a coronary artery, usually caused by a narrowing of the lumen of the blood vessels by the plaques of atherosclerosis. Sometimes a plaque may rupture and release vasoactive or thrombogenic substances that lead to clot formation. If there is adequate collateral circulation to the heart muscle at the time of the occlusion, there may be little or no damage to the myocardial cells. When occlusion is complete, however, with no blood being supplied to an area of the myocardium, myocardial infarction results.

A gene on chromosome 2p22-p21 that encodes a trifuctional enzyme linked to the activities of the first 3 enzymes—carbamoylphosphate synthetase, aspartate transcarbamoylase and dihydroorotase—in the 6-step pathway of pyrimidine biosynthesis. It is regulated by the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade, indicating a link between MAPK cascade activation and synthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides.

Parametric modeling can even take human proportions and movement into account.
The carried out research aimed to establish clear design and construction stages of the virtual 3D-CAD model for a complex shaped part by using parametric modeling capabilities of SolidWorks program, and also pre-processing stages of the part and supports for sintering process.
It removes, the linear dependency of features found in parametric modeling. It captures modeling knowledge on-the-fly so that CAD users can make on-the-fly (a.k.a., ad hoc) changes to those models.
Well, according to Chuck Grindstaff, executive vice president of Products, Siemens PLM Software, "Traditional parametric modeling serially applies rules to geometry, helping to automate planned change but not addressing unanticipated engineering changes.
Subsequent chapters address mathematical definitions of competing risks, descriptive methods for competing risks data, testing a covariate, modeling in the presence of competing risks, calculating the power in the presence of competing risks, and issues such as the conditional probability function and parametric modeling. A final chapter present competing risk problems to be worked out.
"What we noticed after installing thinkdesign for full model design was that the designers were able to create their models in less time and the parametric modeling capability allowed changes to be made easily," Amano said.
Because of the twisting nature of the 83 story building, the parametric modeling tools in Revit Architecture played a crucial role in facilitating the precise positioning of each curved curtain wall panel.
Solid parametric modeling design technologies, high-speed machining, rapid tooling development, and lean manufacturing are becoming standard practice in the industry.
Now we are beginning to see commercially available FEA software that supports parametric modeling, i.e., the definition of finite element models in terms of variables instead of fixed numerical values.
"We have developed CAD-XML to squarely address the industry's pain point in engineering design by increasing productivity with parametric modeling and increasing the interoperability between commonly-used CAD systems," stated Jeff Camiener, president of PD Interactive.
Indeed, the modeler will be a forerunner of the next generation of ICEM Surf which will be based on a new, object-oriented software architecture and will use parametric modeling technology.
