35,36) Capek and colleagues (37) reported better long-term results with neuroma resection and grafting, as compared to neurolysis alone in the setting of conducting and nonconducting neuromas, despite an initial down-grading following resection.
The sensors of hot-film anemometers are fabricated by depositing a thin film of conducting metal (usually platinum or alumina) over the surface of a firm nonconducting substrate (usually quartz).
Each coupon was oriented so that water flowed from the back of the coupon, where it was attached to a nonconducting coupon holder.
Other elements, such as bone and adipose tissue, are essentially nonconducting.
Nonconducting temperature probes, independent of the RF electrode, were placed at the peripheral and deep margins of tumors in order to achieve real-time temperature monitoring of the ablation zone, he explained, adding that all ablations were continued until the probe temperatures reached 60[degrees] C.
TTU researchers addressed this problem by manipulating the process to include a nonconducting material like cotton.
