• colon
  • MR enterography subsequently performed at our institution revealed minimally active inflammatory disease from the rectosigmoid to descending colon without any evidence of complications or active disease involving the neoterminal ileum. (hindawi.com)
  • Grossly, the specimen received was composed of a portion of ileum anastomosed to a markedly dilated colon, including the sigmoid colon, and notable for extensive fat wrapping associated with dense, indurated mesenteric adipose tissue, particularly in the mid and distal colon (Figure 1(a) ).

  • It receives chyme from the ileum, and connects to the ascending colon of the large intestine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Peyer's
  • After oral uptake, Yersinia species replicate in the terminal ileum and invade Peyer's patches. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the length of the intestinal tract contains lymphoid tissue, only the ileum has abundant Peyer's patches, unencapsulated lymphoid nodules that contain large numbers of lymphocytes and other cells of the immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • An underlying lamina propria composed of loose connective tissue and containing germinal centers and large aggregates of lymphoid tissue called Peyer's patches, which are a distinctive feature of the ileum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cross section of ileum with a Peyer's patch circled. (wikipedia.org)
  • abdominal
  • The patient underwent a subtotal abdominal colectomy with pathology showing dense, indurated mesenteric adipose tissue, significant muscularis propria hypertrophy, and myointimal hyperplasia of the mesenteric veins in a peri-ileal and pericolic distribution, as confirmed by elastin stain. (hindawi.com)
  • Meckel's
  • Therefore, during appendectomy, ileum should be checked for the presence of Meckel's diverticulum, if it is found to be present it should be removed along with appendix. (wikipedia.org)
  • umbilical
  • The solitary diverticulum lies on the antimesenteric border of the ileum (opposite to the mesenteric attachment) and extends into the umbilical cord of the embryo. (wikipedia.org)
  • veins
  • Idiopathic myointimal hyperplasia of the mesenteric veins (IMHMV) is a rare disease characterized by intimal smooth muscle proliferation, leading to the thickening of small to medium-sized mesenteric veins. (hindawi.com)
  • Idiopathic myointimal hyperplasia of the mesenteric veins (IMHMV) is a poorly understood disease that poses a diagnostic challenge to clinicians and pathologists. (hindawi.com)
  • IMHMV is characterized by thickened small and medium-sized mesenteric veins with the hallmark feature of intimal smooth muscle proliferation, leading to luminal occlusion and mucosal ischemic changes. (hindawi.com)
  • small
  • This blind segment or small pouch is about 3-6 cm (2 inch) long and may have a greater lumen diameter than that of the ileum. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Understanding the macroscopic structure of the mesenteric organ meant that associated structures-the peritoneal folds and congenital and omental adhesions-could be better appraised. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • In humans, the ileum is about 2-4 m long, and the pH is usually between 7 and 8 (neutral or slightly alkaline). (wikipedia.org)
