Examples

  • The obliterated portion of the saccus vaginalis may generally be seen as a fibrocellular thread lying in the loose areolar tissue around the spermatic cord; sometimes this may be traced as a distinct band from the upper end of the inguinal canal, where it is connected with the peritoneum, down to the tunica vaginalis; sometimes it gradually becomes lost on the spermatic cord.

  • (e.g. in pressure cookers) is that the high temperature gradient, i.e. a large difference between the temperature inside of the food and the temperature of its surroundings, helps the heat penetrate into the food more quickly; lower temperatures would usually suffice to induce swelling and disintegration of the fibrocellular structure - but "low-temperature cooking" would naturally take longer, too.
