  • dermoid
  • Skin may surround a cyst and grow abundant hair (see dermoid cyst). (wikipedia.org)
  • A dermoid cyst is a mature cystic teratoma containing hair (sometimes very abundant) and other structures characteristic of normal skin and other tissues derived from the ectoderm. (wikipedia.org)
  • Examples of neoplastic cysts include: Dermoid cyst Keratocystic odontogenic tumor Calcifying odontogenic cyst Treatment ranges from simple enucleation of the cyst to curettage to resection. (wikipedia.org)
  • connective tissue
  • Significant clinical evidence shows that patients with connective tissue disorders, for example, those with Marfan, Ehlers-Danlos, Sjogren's, and Loeys-Deitz syndromes, are at a greater risk for developing Tarlov cysts. (news-medical.net)
  • typically
  • These cysts typically resolve after skeletal maturity and are not typically associated with bone tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • The material is typically water-based, which has largely replaced oil based fluids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Physical examination typically reveals fluid in the joint, tenderness, and crepitus. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • Differential diagnosis of Thornwaldt's cyst is branchial cleft cyst, Rathke's pouch cyst, adenoid retention cyst, meningocoele , sphenoid sinus mucocoele, JNA and possibly nasopharyngeal carcinoma. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • They are differentiated from other meningeal and arachnoid cysts because they are innervated and diagnosis can in cases be demonstrated with subarachnoid communication. (wikipedia.org)
  • aspiration
  • Therapeutic percutaneous image-guided aspiration of spinal cysts. (winchesterhospital.org)
  • Current treatment options include CSF aspiration, complete or partial removal, fibrin-glue therapy, laminectomy with wrapping of the cyst, amongst other surgical treatment approaches. (wikipedia.org)
  • The types of methods used to treat this type of cyst are curettage and bone grafting, aspiration, steroid injections, and bone marrow injections. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgical
  • The three most common surgical treatments for arachnoid cysts in the brain are craniotomy fenestration, endoscopic cyst fenestration or shunt placement . (columbianeurosurgery.org)
  • Newer surgical techniques have limited the size of the incision you doctor needs to make to remove the cyst. (healthline.com)
  • If the above forms of therapy do not yield results, surgical removal of cysts may be suggested. (news-medical.net)
  • Traumatic Bone Cyst The traumatic bone cyst treatment consists of surgical exploration, curettage of the osseous socket and bony walls, subsequent filling with blood, and intralesional steroid injections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Corpectomy is the removal of a vertebral body as well as the adjacent inter-vertebral discs spine Discectomy is a surgical procedure involving the dissection of an extravasted segment of the intervertebral disc. (wikipedia.org)
  • 1938
  • Despite being described in 1938 as the microscopic appearance of cysts in the pancreas, cystic fibrosis is an example of a genetic disorder whose name is related to fibrosis of the cystic duct (which serves the gallbladder) and does not involve cysts. (wikipedia.org)
  • aneurysmal
  • On CT scans, bone cysts that have a radiodensity of 20 Hounsfield units (HU) or less, and are osteolytic, tend to be aneurysmal bone cysts. (wikipedia.org)

  • En-block resection and reconstruction with strut grafting are the most common treatments and procedures that prevent recurrences of this type of cyst. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone erosion
  • CT scan employs multiple X-rays to disclose the typical bone erosion of the spine, while the cross-sectional image of the organ's tissue structure is also visualized. (news-medical.net)
  • The cysts are often multiple, extending around the circumference of the nerve, and can enlarge over time to compress neighboring nerve roots, to cause bone erosion. (wikipedia.org)
  • cavity
  • The cysts may be found anterior to the sacral area and have been known to extend into the abdominal cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • joints
  • a synovial fluid-filled cyst that appears in the spine where facet joints degenerate. (hutterchiro.com)
  • Synovial fluid is the lubricating fluid found in spinal joints. (hutterchiro.com)
  • However, Cox Technic protocols that incorporate the use of positive galvanic current into the cyst to drive out inflammation and sedate nerves along with Cox Technic Flexion Distraction and Decompression of the facet joints to open the canal space, drop intradiscal pressures and increase disc height offers relief non-invasively. (hutterchiro.com)
  • This description is based on the observations that the cysts occur close to tendons and joints, the microscopic anatomy of the cyst resembles that of the tenosynovial tissue, the fluid is similar in composition to synovial fluid, and dye injected into the joint capsule frequently ends up in the cyst, which may become enlarged after activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • ovaries
  • Increase in stroma means more than average tissue holding the ovaries together and small follicles is a way of saying that there are no large ovarian cysts present. (healthtap.com)
