Definitions for "TEC"
coronary artery transluminal extraction catheter (TEC): A therapeutic procedure for coronary artery disease in which a tube (catheter) topped by two stainless steel blades is inserted through the groin and threaded into a blocked or narrowed coronary artery. The blades rotate and trim away the plaque from the wall of the artery; plaque fragments are then suctioned out through the catheter.
transluminal extraction catheter. A specially­designed atherectomy system that continuously cuts the plaque from the coronary vessel wall while simultaneously removing the resulting particles, including thrombus (blood clots), by vacuum extraction. Removing the plaque and thrombus widens the inside of the artery and lets more blood flow through the blockage. Extensive clinical testing has been performed on the TEC device. Results of this testing show that the TEC procedure is highly successful when used in saphenous vein bypass grafts because it removes the plaque with minimal disruption to the bypass graft itself. Additionally, the TEC procedure may be beneficial when used in coronary blockages that are complicated by the presence of thrombus (blood clots).

Transmission Entry Capacity. The Transmission Entry Capacity of a power station is the maximum amount of active power deliverable by the Power Station at the Grid Entry Point (or in the case of an Embedded Power Station at the User System Entry Point), as declared by the Generator, expressed in whole MW. The maximum active power deliverable is the maximum amount deliverable simultaneously by the Generating Units and/or CCGT Modules less the MW consumed by the Generating Units and/or CCGT Modules in producing that active power and less any auxiliary demand supplied through the station transformers.
