  • Adipose Tissue
  • citation needed] The abnormal enlargement of the breast tissues to a volume in excess of the normal bust-to-body proportions can be caused either by the overdevelopment of the milk glands or of the adipose tissue, or by a combination of both occurrences of hypertrophy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tumor
  • To explore patterns of protein expression in serum and tumor tissues as predictors of response and progression-free survival (PFS) in advanced WT GIST treated with OSI-906. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • To investigate correlations between glucose, insulin, and candidate tumor tissue and blood biomarkers with FDG-PET metabolic response. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This is a phase 2b, randomized, open-label, prospective, multicenter study comparing treatment with INNO 206 to doxorubicin in subjects with metastatic, locally advanced, or unresectable soft tissue sarcomas who have not been previously treated with any chemotherapy except potentially as adjuvant or neoadjuvant chemotherapy, and no evidence of tumor recurrence has occurred for at least 12 months. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A phosphaturic mesenchymal tumor is an extremely rare benign neoplasm of soft tissue and bone that inappropriately produces fibroblast growth factor 23. (wikipedia.org)
  • To spare normal tissues (such as skin or organs which radiation must pass through to treat the tumor), shaped radiation beams are aimed from several angles of exposure to intersect at the tumor, providing a much larger absorbed dose there than in the surrounding, healthy tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is necessary to include a margin of normal tissue around the tumor to allow for uncertainties in daily set-up and internal tumor motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Findings affecting pituitary function in some JBS patients have included such anomalies as the formation of a glial hamartoma (a neoplasm, or tumor composed of glial cells) on a lobe of the pituitary gland, as well congenital underdevelopment of the anterior pituitary. (wikipedia.org)
  • ligament
  • Microscopically, the lesion consisted of a poorly delineated, nodular proliferation of moderately cellular fibrocartilaginous tissue arising within the substance of the nuchal ligament and extending into the surrounding soft tissues . (lookfordiagnosis.com)
  • Primary
  • A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. (icd10data.com)
  • fibroma
  • The soft fibroma (fibroma molle) or fibroma with a shaft (acrochordon, skin tag, fibroma pendulans) consist of many loosely connected cells and less fibroid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The myxofibroma (fibroma myxomatodes) is produced by liquefaction of the underlying soft tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • ectopic
  • The Stafne defect is thought to be a normal anatomical variant, as the depression is created by ectopic salivary gland tissue associated with the submandibular gland and does not represent a pathologic lesion as such. (wikipedia.org)
  • pancreatic
  • Associated with developmental errors, impaired apoptosis, and both prenatal and chronic inflammatory damage, necrosis and fibrosis of the pancreatic acini (clusters of pancreatic exocrine gland tissue, where secretion of pancreatic juice and related enzymes occurs), pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in JBS can additionally stem from congenital replacement of the acini with fatty tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pancreatic endocrine insufficiency in JBS can be associated with either a buildup of connective tissue in the islet regions, congenital replacement of the islets with fatty tissue, or improper nerve signalling to the islets. (wikipedia.org)
  • thymus
  • By the early teens, the thymus begins to atrophy and thymic stroma is mostly replaced by adipose (fat) tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The thymus of older people is scarcely distinguishable from surrounding fatty tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • With aging the thymus slowly shrinks, eventually degenerating into tiny islands of fatty tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • vestibule
  • The formation of cystic tissue in both the cochlea and vestibule, with resulting dilation (widening) and malformation of these delicate structures has been implicated. (wikipedia.org)
  • organs
  • They can grow in all organs, arising from mesenchyme tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Brachytherapy, in which a radioactive source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment, is another form of radiation therapy that minimizes exposure to healthy tissue during procedures to treat cancers of the breast, prostate and other organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Abnormalities
  • Computed tomography (CT) will show a shallow defect through the medial cortex of the mandible with a corticated rim and no soft tissue abnormalities, with the exception of a portion of the submandibular gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • The skin weighs an average of four kilograms, covers an area of two square meters, and is made of three distinct layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The dermis is the layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue, and comprises two sections, the papillary dermis and the reticular dermis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Complex
  • In a breast reduction surgery for re-establishing a functional bust that is proportionate to the woman's body, the critical corrective consideration is the tissue viability of the nipple-areola complex (NAC), to ensure the functional sensitivity and lactational capability of the breasts. (wikipedia.org)
  • breast
  • C50.6 Malignant neoplasm of axillary tail of breast. (icd10data.com)
  • C50.61 Malignant neoplasm of axillary tail of breast. (icd10data.com)
  • The fat-graft transfer approach augments the size and corrects contour defects of the breast hemisphere with grafts of autologous adipocyte fat tissue, drawn from the woman's body. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a breast-reconstruction procedure, within a multi-stage reconstruction-mammoplasty, a tissue expander (a temporary breast-implant device) is emplaced and used to prepare (shape and enlarge) the recipient site (implant-pocket) to receive and accommodate the breast implant prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a non-implant breast-augmentation procedure, some fat-graft injection approaches feature tissue-engineering, which is the pre-operative, external expansion of the tissues of the recipient site to receive the grafts of adipocyte tissue drawn from the woman's body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Non-surgical approaches to breast augmentation can consist either of an externally applied vacuum-device that will expand the tissues of the recipient site. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of the woman with much breast tissue, for whom sub-muscular emplacement is the recommended surgical approach, saline breast implants can afford an aesthetic result much like that afforded by silicone breast implants - a "look" of proportionate breast size, smooth contour, and realistic texture. (wikipedia.org)
  • Code
  • An additional code from Chapter 4 may be used, to identify functional activity associated with any neoplasm. (icd10data.com)
  • dermis
  • In the embryo, the epidermis, hair, and glands form from the ectoderm, which is chemically influenced by the underlying mesoderm that forms the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • residual
  • Although infantile hemangiomas spontaneously regress over time, some may leave residual redundant fibrofatty tissue, scar, residual telangiectasia, or pigmentary changes. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Iatrogenic ulceration can also occur during dental treatment, when incidental abrasions to the soft tissues of the mouth are common. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • This tissue may be further divided into two components, the actual fatty layer, or panniculus adiposus, and a deeper vestigial layer of muscle, the panniculus carnosus. (wikipedia.org)
