 Lumen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In anatomy, the lumen is the cavity or channel within a tube or tubular structure, such as the vascular lumen of a blood vessel, along which blood flows, or the lumen of a seminiferous tubule.
In physics, specifically photometry (optics), the lumen (symbol: lm) is the SI derived unit of luminous flux.
In astronomy, 141 Lumen is the name of an asteroid discovered by the French astronomer Paul Henry in 1875.

 Intravascular ultrasound - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Additionally, IVUS examinations, as they were done more frequently, especially at research centers, served to reveal and confirm the autopsy research findings published by Steven Glasgov, M.D. in 1987, that most of the atherosclerotic process, contrary to many popular illustrations, exists primarily outside the lumen and is not recognized on angiography examinations.
Additionally, IVUS also facilites much more accurate measurement of the degree of stenosis of the opening of the coronary arteries than possible with angiography.
IVUS, as outlined above, has been the best technology, so far, to demonstrate the anatomy of the artery wall in living animals and humans.

 Enteroclysis Small Bowel Study
An enteroclysis small bowel study is an invasive procedure that distends the lumen and allows for fluoroscopic evaluation of the entire small bowel.
The barium coats the intestine and the methylcellulose distends the lumen to give a double contrast exam that allows for fluoroscopic visualization of the entire small bowel.
It is going to be helpful to have a quick review of the stomach anatomy since the enteroclysis tube must be passed through the stomach before it can be properly placed into the jejunum of the small intestines.

 Coarctation of the Aorta
In cases of localized coarctation, the area of the infolded aortic lumen can be excised and a patch can be placed over the area where the wall was cut open to form the continuous lumen once again.
The principle cardiac anatomy is left ventricular hypertrophy due to increased afterload, since tension is increased when the heart tries to pump against it causing the ventricle to become hypertrophied.
Coarctation of the aorta is caused by the discrete narrowing of the distal segment of the aorta beyond the left subclavian artery arising from the aortic arch.

 eMedicine - Appendicitis : Article by Luigi Santacroce, MD
Etiology: Appendicitis is caused by obstruction of the appendiceal lumen.
Appendicitis may occur for several reasons, such as an infection of the appendix, but the most important step is the obstruction of the appendiceal lumen.
Patients with appendicitis may not have the reported classic clinical picture 37-45% of the time, especially when the appendix is located in an unusual place (see Relevant Anatomy).

 Anatomy
In pancreatic duct cells, the bicarbonate is secreted into the lumen of the duct and hence into pancreatic juice.
The enzyme that performs this hydrolysis is pancreatic lipase, which is delivered into the lumen of the gut as a constituent of pancreatic juice.
As soon as this occurs, the enyzmes secreted by the acinar cells are flushed out of the pancreas, through the pancreatic duct into the duodenum.

 e-Gastrointestinal.com:Information about the anatomy & physiology of the GI tract
Anatomically the GI tract is a tube that from the exterior to the lumen is composed of connective tissue, smooth muscle layers with embedded nervous plexus, connective tissue, and an inner epithelial layer.
In an enterohepatic circulation process bile salts and other substances enter the lumen of the GI tract in the duodenum and are reabsorbed further down the intestine into the blood.
The GI tract is the largest endocrine gland in the body with the endocrine cells being diffusely scattered in the mucosa over the length of the alimentary canal.

Many of the GI hormones are also found in the central nervous system where they may play a role in appetite control, satiety or nerve transmission to the GI tract.

 Endomembrane System
Three categorically different protein locations in and out of the endomembrane system are each synthesized by a ribosome starting on the outside of the rough ER and are then extruded into (or at least toward) the lumen of the rough ER.
By all rights this lecture on the above described endomembrane system deserves to be considered as simply an extension of the previous lecture on eucaryotic cellular anatomy, since the endomembrane system is no less critical to making a eucaryotic cell what it is than are any of the other structures described in that previous lecture.
These vessels are together refered to as the endomembrane system, and all of the just described components communicate with each other and with the plasma membrane and nuclear membrane via the formation, release, and then merging of membrane bound vesicles.

 anatomy and physiology of male reproductive system
The mature spermatozoon is released into the tubule lumen.
Eventually the whole spermatozoon is retracted into the oocyte and become immotile with subsequent decondensation of sperm head, disappearance of nuclear membrane, and decondensation of chromosomes.
Usually only one spermatozoon reaches the perivitelline space and sperm-egg fusion takes place.After fusion occurs, additional spermatozoa entry is blocked by cortical reaction.
