  • thyroid gland
  • Also known as: Hürthle cell (thyroid gland only) Oxyphilic cell, Askanazy cell, Apocrine metaplasia (breast gland only). (wikipedia.org)
  • NTRK3 forms chromosomal translation-mediated fusions with many other genes in addition to ETV6 to form fused genes that that are associated with the induction of a wide range of cancers including those of the lung, thyroid gland, colon, rectum, and brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • facial nerve
  • From the surface to the depth, the structures crossing the gland are: the facial nerve, the retromadibular vein and the external carotid artery. (arquivosdeorl.org.br)
  • The observation included 70 people aged 18-86 (42 women and 28 men) with paresis of the facial nerve after operative treatment of benign neoplasms of the salivary glands. (tmj-vgmu.ru)
  • Furthermore, the extratemporal (outside temporal bone) facial nerve and its subsidiaries run through the parotid gland and innervate (supply nerves to) the face. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, there are really only two main distinctions to be made in parotidectomies: The specific nerve(s) to be dissected or not dissected The amount of gland excised It is important to note that the specific surgery chosen is based on preservation of the facial nerve in order to avoid significant morbidities (diseases). (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgeon tries to remove the gland apart from the facial nerve, yet dissecting all branches of the facial nerves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Facial nerve excised in addition to parotid gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • ducts
  • Abnormalities of the salivary gland ducts leading to excessive accumulation or retention of ductal secretions, which can excite chronic inflammations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Primary
  • This study tested a translational workflow for acquisition, expansion and testing of CRC-derived primary cultures of salivary gland neoplasms from patients presenting to an academic surgical practice. (biologists.org)
  • Sunitinib is expected to inhibit PDGF- and VEGF-driven angiogenesis and, as a consequence, limit solid tumour growth.This study will determine the anti-tumour activity of sunitinib in ACC of the salivary glands using objective response rates (partial and complete responses) as its primary objective. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • superficial
  • The submandibular gland is along the jaw's structure and is partially superficial and partially deep in the mieloid muscle. (arquivosdeorl.org.br)
  • It takes almost all the submandibular fornix and has a relationship with the facial vein (superficial to the gland), facial artery (deep in the gland) and the marginal mandibular nerve (flows up along the lower edge of the jaw, superficial to the facial vein). (arquivosdeorl.org.br)
  • partial superficial parotidectomy - superficial parotidectomy where the surgeon excises only the portion of the gland surrounding the neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • Generally, benign tumors of the parotid gland are treated with superficial(Patey's operation) or total parotidectomy with the latter being the more commonly practiced due to high incidence of recurrence. (wikipedia.org)
