• villi
  • The interior surface of the jejunum-which is exposed to ingested food-is covered in finger-like projections of mucosa, called villi, which increase the surface area of tissue available to absorb nutrients from ingested foodstuffs. (wikipedia.org)
  • The villi of the jejunum look like long, finger-like projections, and are a histologically identifiable structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • The entire wall of the jejunum is also folded into microscopic finger-like ridges known as villi that form larger pockets and further increase the surface area of the jejunum. (innerbody.com)
  • To calculate the number of goblet cells in non-infected, infected and infected-treated mice, jejunum tissue sections were stained with Alcian blue and the number of goblet cells was scored in 10 well orinted jejuna villi (Allen et al. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The internal membrane of the jejunum is lined with finger like projections referred to as the villi. (laparoscopic.md)
  • The surface area of the internal membrane of the jejunum that is available for the absorption of nutrients and products of digestion is increased manifold by the presence of villi. (laparoscopic.md)
  • cholera
  • METHODS: A closed 10 cm segment of upper jejunum was exposed to 15 micrograms of cholera toxin for two hours prior to closed segment perfusion with plasma electrolyte solution containing a non-absorbable volume marker, [14C]-polyethylene glycol. (bmj.com)
  • segment
  • The patient underwent en bloc resection of tumor with jejunum and transverse bowel segment and received adjuvant chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel. (hindawi.com)
  • intestinal
  • Many goblet cells in the mucosa produce mucus to protect the intestinal walls and to lubricate chyme passing through the jejunum. (innerbody.com)
  • organs
  • Serous fluid lubricates the exterior of the jejunum and protects it from friction between organs of the abdominal cavity. (innerbody.com)
  • Like all hollow organs, the jejunum is lined with a mucous membrane . (doccheck.com)
  • symptoms
  • Majority of jejuna diverticulosis, being asymptomatic or with mild symptoms, suspicion is difficult and the diagnosis is often missed or delayed. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • hollow
  • The innermost layer, the mucosa, surrounds the hollow lumen and provides contact between the jejunum and chyme. (innerbody.com)
  • Figure
  • A computed tomography (CT) scan was performed and revealed a 20-centimeter mass in the jejunum, which also involved the transverse colon (Figure 1 ). (hindawi.com)
