Inside Peyton Manning's surgery

The Indianapolis Colts will be playing without their star quarterback on Sunday, after Peyton Manning underwent surgery for a neck injury on Thursday. Manning had started every game in his 13-year career.

Colts president Bill Polian told SI.com Thursday afternoon that doctors believe there's a chance Manning, 35, could return to playing football again this year.

Manning had a procedure called a single level anterior fusion. That involves making an incision at the front of the neck, without cutting any muscles. The disc is removed from the nerve and spinal cord. The surgeon then fills the open disc space with a bone graft. The graft acts as a bridge between the two vertebrae, creating a spinal fusion. Metal plates and screws are often used to hold the bone graft and vertebrae together.

It's realistic for Manning to come back to playing in eight to 12 weeks, says Dr. Joseph C. Maroon, a neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Maroon did not treat Manning, but has operated on five NFL athletes and five professional wrestlers.

"This didn't ruin his career - it saved it, because it's going to get him out of pain and stabilize his spine and he should make a full recovery," Maroon said.

People who have this procedure don't notice any loss of movement, and most go back to regular work within five to 10 days. They may have a sore throat for several days, but most do well within two to three weeks, Maroon said.

Manning had been suffering from a pinched nerve. He had two previous surgeries that appeared to be unsuccessful. Three reasons people have this kind of surgery are pain that doesn't go away, weakness to a specific muscle group or loss of sensation.

If the nerve is badly compressed before the surgery, however, specific muscle groups may be weaker than normal, but doctors would know about that beforehand. That would require a longer course of rehabilitation to help strengthen his muscles, Maroon said.

Last winter, two former Colts players had the same procedure, and the team says they have fully resumed their careers.

A 2011 study in the journal Spine found that after having a similar surgery, 40 players had come back to play in the NFL again.

"To say I am disappointed in not being able to play is an understatement," Manning said in a written statement. "The best part about football is being out there on the field playing with my teammates. It will tough not to be out there playing for the organization and our fans."

    A continuación te vamos a hablar de las diferentes formas que se dan en taller de mecanizado y qué cosas se deben tener en cuenta, pero antes veamos un video con algunas máquinas en acción. Por otro lado, a mayor contacto entre pieza y herramienta, se requieren mayor potencia, estabilidad, evacuación de viruta y capacidad de movimiento de la máquina, por lo que la operación de 'flank milling' puede quedar limitada por estos aspectos.

    Hola, Maribel, no deberías tener ningún problema para encontrar accesorios para ese modelo de cafetera en ninguno de nuestros Servicios Técnicos Oficiales Por tanto, estamos averiguando qué está pasando en concreto con ese ST que mencionas. Hola, Raúl, probablemente deberás llevarla a uno de nuestros Servicios Técnicos oficiales. En el servicio técnico oficial de mi ciudad me dicen que la casa ya no sirve recambios para este modelo. Si prefieres un cacillo de un café, deberás adquirirlo en un Servicio Técnico Oficial (casquillo un café – ref K137035107).

    Ayer a la hora de resetear el programa de lavado de mi lavavajillas de Bosch sin querer lo hice apretando los dos botones de reset y después al botón de power on/off, cuando debía hacerlo cuando al revés y se ha metido en unos menús un tanto raros que deben de ser menús para el servicio oficial técnico y ahora no abre la trampilla de la pastilla del detergente y tampoco echa abrillantador , es por lo cual que no se si de alguna manera se puede restablecer el programador al origen de fabrica.

    En el mecanizado por penetración la pieza es el cátodo y la herramienta (generalmente, de cobre grafito) tiene la geometría a mecanizar y es el ánodo. Nuestras tecnologias y medios de fabricación nos permiten garantizar acabados de calidad de acuerdo a las especificaciones de nuestros clientes.

    Aunque el proceso de fabricación de las piezas es algo que está bastante automatizado, es decir, que la mayor parte del trabajo la realizan las máquinas, el factor humano también es importante porque se debe prestar especial atención a que los tornos automáticos y el resto de herramientas que se necesitan para llevar a cabo el proceso funcionan correctamente.
