The effect of the weight ratio of PAH and LCX (the weight ratio of both reactants) on the HCHO removal percentage is presented in Fig.
This paper presents the mathematical model of the dispersed bioparticle-blood flow in the left coronary artery (LCA) with its branches including the LAD and LCX. The combination of the mean continuity equation, the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations, and the Menter's SST k-[omega] models is employed to investigate the turbulence flow of blood, the non-Newtonian incompressible fluid.
Anomaly Number of patients Prevalence (%) RCA from LCS 16 0.31 LCx from RCS or proximal RCA 13 0.25 LMCA from RCS 3 0.06 LCx from RCA and LAD from RCS 1 0.02 LAD from RCS 1 0.02 RCA from LAD 1 0.02 LAD: left anterior descending; LMCA: left main coronary artery; LCS: left coronary sinus; LCx: left circumflex; RCA: right coronary artery; RCS: right coronary sinus.
The objective of this study is to propose a radiation model of the LCX, which explore the insights of the LTE used in China's metro at 1.8 GHz.
A noteworthy result is the SNR of the LAD, which was slightly lower compared to the SNR of the RCA and LCx in all three scan protocols.
By assuming, as a matter of course, that [Bnf.sub.ITG] is superior to [Bnf.sub.LCX] and exceeds the costs of its implementation, (which can always be supported by the micro business/SME), it follows that the decision to adopt the ITG or LCX tends to be directed by v.
The company has been working on research on the 2x2 MIMO system, which uses an LCX that also serves as two antennas, in cooperation with Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International and Nara Institute of Science and Technology.
LMS: Dense calcification at ostium and distal left mainstem extending into LAD and LCX arteries.
Depending on its course, it is classified into groups I (course of RCA or left sided system), II (origin of anomalous vessel from proximal part of right or left coronary artery before crossing the base of the heart and assuming its normal position), or III (LAD and LCX arise from proximal part of RCA).
No intervention was performed for left circumflex (LCX) 40% and first obtuse marginal (OM1) 50% stenoses.
The analysis of the one-vessel disease in these patients showed that the culprit lesion was in 60% of cases the left descending artery (LDA), in 20% of cases the right coronary artery (RCA), and in 20% of cases the left circumflex artery (LCX) in diabetic women and 50% LDA and 50% RCA lesion in women without diabetes, respectively.
The score was then multiplied by a factor that incorporates the importance of the lesion's position in the coronary arterial tree as follows: 5 for the left main coronary artery; 2.5 for the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) or the left circumflex artery (LCX); 1.5 for the mid-LAD; and 1 for the distal LAD, the right coronary artery, or the middistal LCX.
