Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A spectrum of congenital, inherited, or acquired abnormalities in BLOOD VESSELS that can adversely affect the normal blood flow in ARTERIES or VEINS. Most are congenital defects such as abnormal communications between blood vessels (fistula), shunting of arterial blood directly into veins bypassing the CAPILLARIES (arteriovenous malformations), formation of large dilated blood blood-filled vessels (cavernous angioma), and swollen capillaries (capillary telangiectases). In rare cases, vascular malformations can result from trauma or diseases.

A method of ETHICAL ANALYSIS that emphasizes practical problem solving through examining individual cases that are considered to be representative; sometimes used to denote specious argument or rationalization. Differentiate from casuistics, which is the recording and study of cases and disease.

A chromosome disorder associated with TRISOMY of all or part of CHROMOSOME 13. Clinical manifestations include CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS (e.g., PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS), facial malformations (e.g., CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; COLOBOMA; MICROPHTHALMIA); HYPOTONIA, digit malformations (e.g., POLYDACTYLY or SYNDACTYLY), and SEIZURES and severe INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY associated with NERVOUS SYSTEM MALFORMATIONS.

A microtubule-associated protein consisting of four ANKYRIN REPEATS and a C-terminal FERM DOMAIN. It links the CYTOSKELETON to CELL JUNCTIONS via integrin cytoplasmic domain-associated protein-1 and plays an important role in regulating cell proliferation and integrity of endothelial cell junctions. It is also involved in REACTIVE OXYGEN SPECIES metabolism. Mutations in the KRIT1 gene are associated with type I CEREBRAL CAVERNOUS MALFORMATIONS.

Works consisting of collections of law reports or the published reports of decided cases and documents or filings related to those cases.
