Lag

Payment of a financial obligation later than is expected or required, as in lead and lag. Also, the number of periods that an dependent variable in a regression model is "held back" in order to predict the dependent variable.

Lag

1. A late payment.

2. In a quantitative model, the length of time considered in the past that is used to predict a future variable.

Medial migration of the lag screw has by our understanding only been described in a few other case reports.

Among the choices are nails, wood screws, lag screws, carriage bolts, an array of premanufactured fasteners, and specialty connectors (Figure 7-3).
25 mL Mean size of lag screw 85 mm Mean size of anti-rotation screw 75 mm Operative details
After reduction and fixation of the talus with cancellous lag screws was achieved, the medial malleolus fracture was fixed with a combination of a distal lag screw followed by the application of the anti-glide plate situated over the apex of the fracture.
Using a lag screw hinge-and-eye set, I mounted my gate to the post.
Based on the failure mode of D-log walls, the performance of withdrawal and lateral resistance of lag screw joints was shown to play an important role for walls subjected to lateral load.
The lag screw is a heavier and longer screw used for anchoring structural members.
4) Dynamic Hip Screw (DHS) is a lag screw, which is biomechanically superior to various compression hip screw systems developed during recent years (Regazzoni 1985).
Sliding of the lag screw in hip fracture fixation devices enables fracture consolidation and transmission of forces through the fracture site and, by this mechanism, enhances healing.
This System--which can be used in conjunction with other fixation devices--also includes a toothed washer for improved bone fixation and a lag screw design for secure compression.
For the 20-mm-diameter lag screw there was clearly a difference between the two loading directions (average strength ratio was 0.
