An occipital plate for use in an occipito-cervico-thoracic (OCT) construct is mounted to a patient's occipital bone.
The occipital plate includes an elongate base plate oriented with a midline of the base plate longitudinal on the occipital bone.
The occipital clamping assembly further includes a rod-receiving portion coupled to the hook for coupling a rod to the occipital bone engaged by the hook.
The headguard also includes a rear pad (114) for covering an occipital bone of the wearer and an adjustment strap system (102) which secures the side portions of the central pad (107) to the rear pad (114).
In order to effectively record the visual field responses, a unique array of bipolar occipital straddle electrode positions are employed, overlying the occipital visual cortex.
Bifurcated leads may simplify implantation procedures associated with electrical single therapy at two distinct anatomical locations, such as a left and a right occipital nerve.
Additionally, methods of occipital coupling of a spinal fixation element are provided herein.
The helmet (10) is constructed to cover the apical as well as the frontal, temporal and occipital basilar skull.
The supporting member includes an, injection molded base portion integral with an occipital lobe supporting portion.
The device (10) further includes a forward anchor (18) for anchoring against a forward portion of the person's head (16).
Multifocal pattern stimuli are cortically scaled and presented using a standard system.
where the heads are removed from the conveyor or hooks before harvesting the head meat, the frontal shot hole and foramen magnum shall be sealed with an impermeable and durable stopper.
the frontal shot hole and the foramen magnum shall be properly sealed with an impermeable and durable stopper before being moved from the conveyor or hooks to the racks.
Where the brainstem is sampled for laboratory testing for BSE, the foramen magnum shall be sealed immediately after that sampling
The hook (32) comprises a body (33) and a laminar portion (37) which is suitably profiled and adapted to penetrate a foramen opening at the base of the occiput against which it bears.
