• gastrocolic
  • Most sources include the following three: Gastrophrenic ligament-extends to the underside of the left dome of the diaphragm Gastrocolic ligament-extends to the transverse colon (occasionally on its own considered synonymous with "greater omentum") Gastrosplenic ligament (or Gastrolienal) ligament)- extends to the spleen, overlying the kidney The splenorenal ligament (from the left kidney to the spleen) is occasionally considered part of the greater omentum.

  • Torsion
  • Omentum torsion generally takes place on the right side and clinically mimics appendicitis, so for this reason omentum torsion is generally diagnosed by laparatomy carried out for appendicitis. (oalib.com)
  • For differential diagnosis from appendicitis it is important that pain starts suddenly after a heavy meal or hard exercise in omentum torsion and also pain is not accompanied with nausea, vomiting and anorexia. (oalib.com)
  • Primary omentum torsion was diagnosed and the infarcted tissue resected. (oalib.com)
  • We suggest that in cases where acute appendicitis is uncertain omentum torsion and other pathologies must be considered. (oalib.com)
  • acute
  • Cells from the omentum exert anti-inflammatory and/or healing properties in the acute DSS-induced colitis model. (nih.gov)
  • mice
  • In in vivo studies with syngeneic tumor models, mouse ovarian tumors invaded into omentum much more rapidly in VDR null than wild type mice, showing a role for stromal VDR in OCa invasion. (aacrjournals.org)
  • The researchers examined the effect of mouse omentum cells on T cells (or T lymphocytes) from mice. (caloriebee.com)
  • Omentum Cells Promote Healing of Colonic Tissues in Dextran Sulfate Sodium (DSS) Induced Model of Colitis in Mice. (nih.gov)
  • We also examined if omentum infused mice were resistant to a lethal challenge of 4% DSS. (nih.gov)
  • 2% DSS-mice injected with omentum cells exhibited a decrease in body weight loss, decreased inflammation in the colon and decreased levels of the inflammatory cytokine KC in the serum compared to mice given 2% DSS alone. (nih.gov)
  • In addition, mice administered a lethal dose of 4% DSS exhibited a 50% decrease in mortality when injected with omentum cells. (nih.gov)
  • Mice were administered 2% DSS for 10 days and then injected intraperitoneally with omentum cells (2% DSS + omentum) or PBS (2% DSS). (nih.gov)
  • To determine if omentum protects against histological damage induced by DSS treatment, mice were administered 2% DSS for 10 days, injected with omentum cells and then euthanized 14 days later (day 24). (nih.gov)
  • In contrast, 2% DSS + omentum treated mice exhibited minimal ulcerations though they also showed extensive mucosal hyperplasia. (nih.gov)
  • In addition, we found that KC levels (functional homolog of interleukin-8) in the serum were also decreased in DSS + omentum mice compared to DSS treated mice (Fig. 3). (nih.gov)
  • We isolated mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from mice omentum adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ASCs) and transplanted them into a mouse model of APAP-induced ALF to explore their therapeutic potential. (biomedcentral.com)
  • spots
  • Information thus obtained by the spots then prompts a range of actions from the omentum itself, which include triggering inflammation and other immunological responses. (macedoniaonline.eu)
  • cytokine
  • This is the first demonstration of an important role of 1,25D3 in suppressing cytokine expression and ovarian tumor invasion into omentum. (aacrjournals.org)
  • inflammation
  • Average colonic inflammation scores were significantly lower in the 2% DSS + omentum group compared to the 2% DSS group suggesting that omentum cells accelerated mucosa healings (Fig. 2). (nih.gov)
  • surgical
  • Omentectomy refers to the surgical removal of the omentum, a relatively simple procedure with no major side effects, that is performed in cases where there is concern that there may be spread of cancerous tissue into the omentum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Use of greater omentum in the surgical treatmen. (ugent.be)
  • Stegen L, Van Goethem B, Beerden C, Grussendorf C, De Rooster H. Use of greater omentum in the surgical treatment of a synovial cyst in a cat. (ugent.be)
  • Primary
  • In addition, we performed in vitro co-culture studies with omentum-derived ASCs and primary isolated hepatocytes to demonstrate the hepatoprotective effect of omentum-derived ASCs on hepatocytes that were subjected to APAP-induced damage. (biomedcentral.com)
  • therapeutic
  • Randall and Meza-Perez suggest that better understanding the mechanism by which the omentum shields cancer cells could lead to new therapeutic targets, enabling early intervention. (macedoniaonline.eu)
  • our results demonstrate that omentum-derived ASCs are an alternative source of ASCs that regulate the antioxidant response and may represent a beneficial therapeutic strategy for ALF. (biomedcentral.com)
  • cells
  • Research suggests that the omentum may also suppress certain aspects of the immune system, at least in mouse cells studied in lab equipment. (caloriebee.com)
  • The researchers mixed omentum cells with activated T cells in laboratory equipment and found that the T cells died. (caloriebee.com)
  • Omentum cells decreases DSS-induced colitis. (nih.gov)
  • In this study, we investigated whether the cells with anti-inflammatory and healing properties from the omentum could be harnessed to treat colitis in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced mouse colitis model. (nih.gov)
