Hypothalamus, Anterior definition: The front portion of the HYPOTHALAMUS separated into the preoptic region and the supraoptic region. The preoptic region is made up of the periventricular gray matter of the rostral portion of the third ventricle and contains the preoptic ventricular nucleus and the medial preoptic nucleus. The supraoptic region contains the PARAVENTRICULAR HYPOTHALAMIC NUCLEUS, the SUPRAOPTIC NUCLEUS, the ANTERIOR HYPOTHALAMIC NUCLEUS, and the SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEUS.
Pituitary Hormones, Anterior definition: Hormones secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Structurally, they include polypeptide, protein, and glycoprotein molecules.
Uveitis, Anterior definition: Inflammation of the anterior uvea comprising the iris, angle structures, and the ciliary body. Manifestations of this disorder include ciliary injection, exudation into the anterior chamber, iris changes, and adhesions between the iris and lens (posterior synechiae). Intraocular pressure may be increased or reduced.
Anterior definition: Denoting the front surface of the body; often used to indicate the position of one structure relative to another.
superior colliculus definition: either of the superior (rostral) pair of rounded eminences symmetrically located in the tectum of the mesencephalon, containing reflex centers for visual sensations.
Superior Colliculi definition: The anterior pair of the quadrigeminal bodies which contain the centers for visual function.
Anterior chest definition: Subdivision of thorax which is anterior to the plane of the posterior boundary of the middle mediastinum.
Anterior chest definition: Subdivision of the chest wall which is demarcated from the lateral parts of the chest by the anterior axillary lines.
ANTERIOR WALL MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION definition: Electrocardiographic finding showing an injury in leads corresponding to the anatomic region of the anterior wall of the heart. (NCI)
Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction definition: Electrocardiographic finding showing an injury in leads corresponding to the anatomic region of the anterior wall of the heart.
Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction definition: MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION in which the anterior wall of the heart is involved. Anterior wall myocardial infarction is often caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. It can be categorized as anteroseptal or anterolateral wall myocardial infarction.
anterior mediastinotomy definition: (MEE-dee-a-stin-AH-toe-mee) A procedure in which a tube is inserted into the chest to view the tissues and organs in the area between the lungs and between the breastbone and heart. The tube is inserted through an incision next to the breastbone. This procedure is usually used to get a tissue sample from the lymph nodes on the left side of the chest.
Anterior Mediastinotomy definition: Surgical opening of the anterior mediastinum.
NOSTRIL definition: One of the two channels of the nose, from the point where they divide to the external opening. (NCI)
Nostril definition: One of the two channels of the nose, from the point where they divide to the external opening.
Abdomen proper definition: Subdivision of abdomen which is demarcated from the pelvis by the plane of the superior pelvic aperture. Examples: There is only one abdomen proper.
Front of abdomen definition: Subdivision of abdomen which is demarcated from the back of the abdomen by the posterior surface of the anterior layer of the thoracolumbar fascia and the anterior surface of the lumbar vertebral column; together with the back of the abdomen, it constitutes the abdomen. Examples: There is only one front of abdomen.
Inhalation Rib Dysfunction definition: A somatic dysfunction usually characterized by a rib being held in a position of inhalation such that motion toward inhalation is more free and motion toward exhalation is restricted. Synonyms: inhaled rib, anterior rib, inhalation strain, elevated rib, exhalation restriction.
Anterior Sacrum definition: A positional term based on the Strachan model referring to sacral somatic dysfunction in which the sacral base has rotated anterior and sidebent to the side opposite the rotation. The upper limb of the SI (sacroiliac) joint has restricted motion and is named for the side on which forward rotation had occurred. Tissue texture changes are found at the deep sulcus. (The motion characteristics of L5 are not described.)
