Considering the pregnancy of the patient, we tried to avoid a prosthetic valve substitute and preserved the valve despite its low geometric height. She could continue her pregnancy until term without any damage to the newborn.
When studying correlations between RBC values (red blood cell count) and LIM parameters of human erythrocytes, we detected a moderate negative correlation with the value of phase image S (r = -0.40) and moderate positive correlation with the values of the geometric height, phase volume, and optical path difference (r = 0.47, r = 0.48, and r = 0.48, resp.) (p < 0.05).
The [Pi.sub.0] index is related to the unit flow rate (q (L [s.sup.-1] [ha.sup.-1])), where as [Pi.sub.1], [Pi.sub.2], and [Pi.sub.3] indices are related to the geometric height. [Pi.sub.4] and [Pi.sub.7] indices, in contrast, are shown to be strictly dependent on the efficiency of the equipment.
