1. In surgery, injury to a bone involving separation of an epiphysis. 2. In cardiac physiology, the last part of diastole. It follows the period of most rapid diastolic filling of the ventricles, consists of a period of retarded inflow of blood from atria into ventricles, lasts (in humans under average conditions) about 0.2 sec, and is immediately followed by atrial systole.
