Balloon Dilation Treatment of Phimosis in Boys (1200 words)
The balloon dilation technique for treating phimosis in boys includes a balloon catheter, an inflator, a valve clip and two curved retractors, which are all made of disposable plastics.
Balloon dilation treatment is indicated for boy patients with a constricted preputial orifice impeding retraction of the prepuce over the glans penis and/or a history of either urinary tract infection, frequent micturition or bradyuria due to phimosis before the age of three years.
Dilation of the prepuce should be terminated if the balloon waist disappears or when the balloon diameter is 3-5mm greater than that of glans penis.
Dilation (9480 words)
Dilational lineaments are part of a larger array of Europan lineae which crisscross the satellite, discovered by the Voyager spacecraft (Smith et al., 1979; Lucchitta and Soderblom, 1982), and viewed at higher resolution by the Galileo spacecraft (Belton et al., 1996; Greeley et al., 1998; Greenberg et al., 1998a).
Dilation may accompany ridge formation when ice or slush accumulates in the cracks, forcing the opposing blocks apart when daily compressive tidal stress is applied, according to Greenberg et al.
Because external pulling counteracts tidal compression, the relative importance of the two end-member processes determines the morphology of Europan dilational lineaments, by controlling the degree of elevation, and the prominence of a central groove and of bilateral symmetry.
