Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Soft Tissue Injuries
Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".
Tissue Expansion Devices
Devices used to generate extra soft tissue in vivo to be used in surgical reconstructions. They exert stretching forces on the tissue and thus stimulate new growth and result in TISSUE EXPANSION. They are commonly inflatable reservoirs, usually made of silicone, which are implanted under the tissue and gradually inflated. Other tissue expanders exert stretching forces by attaching to outside of the body, for example, vacuum tissue expanders. Once the tissue has grown, the expander is removed and the expanded tissue is used to cover the area being reconstructed.
A slowly progressive condition of unknown etiology, characterized by deposition of fibrous tissue in the retroperitoneal space compressing the ureters, great vessels, bile duct, and other structures. When associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm, it may be called chronic periaortitis or inflammatory perianeurysmal fibrosis.
Soft Tissue Infections
Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)
Neoplasms, Connective And Soft Tissue
Neoplasms developing from some structure of the connective and subcutaneous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective or soft tissue.
Abstract Cases of retroperitoneal ectopic pregnancy are very rare. To date, few published and unpublished reports are available and no clear or specific management guidelines have been defined. Despit...
INTRODUCTION Retroperitoneal soft tissue sarcomas represent a relatively rare and complex therapeutic problem where surgery forms the mainstay of treatment and is technically demanding. In this study,...
Sarcomas are uncommon malignant tumors arising from mesenchymal tissue, accounting for approximately 10% of soft-tissue sarcomas and less than 1% of all malignant neoplasms. The most frequent subtypes...
Necrotizing soft tissue infection is a severe illness that is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. It is often caused by a wide spectrum of pathogens and is most frequently polymicrobi...
This paper is the second in a three part series looking at the aetiology and management of gingival recession. Part one discussed the aetiology and non-surgical management and this part aims to discus...
A comparison of fibrin sealant 2 versus Surgicel® as an addition to standard surgical practice in stopping mild to moderate soft tissue bleeding during retroperitoneal or intra-abdominal...
The effectiveness objective of this study is to evaluate whether Fibrin Patch is superior to SURGICEL™ as an adjunct to achieving hemostasis during surgical procedures involving soft tis...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and hemostatic effectiveness of the Fibrin Pad (FP) versus standard of care treatment (SoC) in controlling challenging severe soft tis...
RATIONALE: Specialized radiation therapy, such as proton beam radiation therapy, that delivers a high dose of radiation directly to the tumor may kill more tumor cells and cause less damag...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn if the study drug RAD001 can stop or slow the growth of resectable soft tissue sarcoma. The patient's physical state, their symptoms, c...
