 Synonyms & Historicals
Polyethylenes .
Ethene Homopolymers .
Homopolymers, Ethene .
Polymers, Ethylene .
Ethylene Polymers .
Synthetic thermoplastics that are tough, flexible, inert, and resistant to chemicals and electrical current. They are often used as biocompatible materials for prostheses and implants. .
Ligaments .
Ligament .
Shiny, flexible bands of fibrous tissue connecting together articular extremities of bones. They are pliant, tough, and inextensile. .
Street Drugs .
Abuse Drugs .
Drugs, Illicit .
Drugs, Recreational .
Drugs, Street .
Drugs of Abuse .
Illicit Drugs .
Recreational Drugs .
Drugs obtained and often manufactured illegally for the subjective effects they are said to produce. They are often distributed in urban areas, but are also available in suburban and rural areas, and tend to be grossly impure and may cause unexpected toxicity. .
Epoxy Resins .
Resins, Epoxy .
Polymeric resins derived from OXIRANES and characterized by strength and thermosetting properties. Epoxy resins are often used as dental materials. .
Coated Materials, Biocompatible .
Surface-Coated Materials .
Biocompatible Coated Materials .
Materials, Biocompatible Coated .
Materials, Surface-Coated .
Surface Coated Materials .
Biocompatible materials usually used in dental and bone implants that enhance biologic fixation, thereby increasing the bond strength between the coated material and bone, and minimize possible biological effects that may result from the implant itself. .
Polystyrenes .
Polystyrol .
Polystyrene .
Polystyrols .
Polymerized forms of styrene used as a biocompatible material, especially in dentistry. They are thermoplastic and are used as insulators, for injection molding and casting, as sheets, plates, rods, rigid forms and beads. .
Humic Acids (Environmental Health) .
Humic Compounds (Environmental Health) .
Humic Substances (Environmental Health) .
Compounds resulting from microbial activity on plant and animal organic material. They are more resistant to biodegradation and persistent in the aquatic environment for a long time. .
Deep Brain Stimulation .
Electrical Stimulation of the Brain .
Brain Stimulations, Deep .
Deep Brain Stimulations .
Stimulation, Deep Brain .
Stimulations, Deep Brain .
Brain Stimulation, Deep .
Therapy for MOVEMENT DISORDERS, especially PARKINSON DISEASE, that applies electricity via stereotactic implantation of ELECTRODES in specific areas of the BRAIN such as the THALAMUS. The electrodes are attached to a neurostimulator placed subcutaneously. .
Naphthalenes .
Two-ring crystalline hydrocarbons isolated from coal tar. They are used as intermediates in chemical synthesis, as insect repellents, fungicides, lubricants, preservatives, and, formerly, as topical antiseptics. .
