  • accumulation
  • It is essential a variation of the cervical mucocele, but the fluid accumulation is almost entirely within the throat (pharynx). (acvs.org)
  • 2,5 Rupture of the mucocele may result in pseudomyxoma peritonei, which is characterized by implantation of mucinous epithelium on the peritoneum and mucus accumulation within the peritoneal cavity, often leading to adhesions and intestinal obstruction. (appliedradiology.com)
  • asymptomatic
  • 1,2 Clinical features include pain in the right lower quadrant, a palpable abdominal mass, and intermittent colicky pain.Approximately 25% of mucoceles are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally on surgery. (appliedradiology.com)
  • 21 Cumulatively, studies have shown that almost one-quarter of patients with mucoceles were asymptomatic. (dvm360.com)
  • clinical
  • The authors report their experience with an infant presenting with an infected nasolacrimal duct mucocele, emphasizing correlation of clinical, CT, and surgical findings. (ajnr.org)
  • 11 Given the diagnostic tools available at the time, the true clinical impact and incidence of mucoceles before the 1990s are unknown. (dvm360.com)
  • obstruction
  • 12 While extrahepatic biliary duct obstruction is a recognized cause of mucocele formation in people, prospective studies in dogs do not support this finding. (dvm360.com)
  • 13 Conversely, it appears that extrahepatic biliary duct obstruction is secondary to mucocele formation. (dvm360.com)
  • cervical
  • This is frequently seen in association with a cervical mucocele. (acvs.org)
  • Occasionally cervical mucoceles migrate to the ventral midline over time, making it difficult to determine whether the problem involves the left or right sided glands (Figure 1). (acvs.org)
  • recurrent
  • Though these cysts, also known as mucous cysts, normally heal on their own, recurrent mucoceles have the potential to permanently scar the area on which they form. (wisegeek.org)
  • oral
  • A pharyngeal mucocele is generally totally undetectable until the oral cavity is examined with sedation. (acvs.org)
  • The size of oral mucoceles vary from 1 mm to several centimeters and they usually are slightly transparent with a blue tinge. (wikipedia.org)
  • fluid
  • Mucoceles are a harmless, common condition resulting from the collection of clear fluid on the interior surface of the lip. (wisegeek.org)
  • But simply draining the fluid filled lumen of the mucocele will not solve the problem permanently. (healthtap.com)
  • mouth
  • I chew my food slowly to avoid biting my mouth, and I use tartar control toothpaste because it can help prevent mucocele formation. (wisegeek.org)
  • I had what we thought was a mucocele on the roof of my mouth. (healthtap.com)
  • Mucoceles are blocked salivary ducts in the inside of the cheek, gum, floor of the mouth, or the palate . (healthtap.com)
  • A non-surgical option that may be effective for a small or newly identified mucocele is to rinse the mouth thoroughly with salt water (one tablespoon of salt per cup) four to six times a day for a few days. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • I fear surgery, so I usually just deal with my mucoceles with home remedies. (wisegeek.org)
  • 11 Mucoceles are usually reported in small or medium-sized dogs, and Shetland sheepdogs and cocker spaniels are overrepresented. (dvm360.com)
  • formation
  • Careful suture placement should taken with nearby glands to prevent iatrogenic mucocele formation. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • 14 Other suggested causes of canine mucocele formation include progestational therapy or progestational compounds, cholecystitis, and glucocorticoid excess. (dvm360.com)
  • It has been proposed that mucocele formation is the result of progressive biliary sludging. (dvm360.com)
  • The most widely supported theory of canine mucocele formation implicates mucus-secreting cell proliferation and dysfunction. (dvm360.com)
