This study evaluates the impact of soft tissue grafts on soft tissue recession following immediate implant, provisional and bone graft placement in compromised sockets. One third of the pa...
Translational studies in cancer research can be impeded by the lack of high-quality clinical data that can be correlated with research questions. This is particularly true in the case of r...

The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of acellular adipose tissue (AAT), intended for the repair of soft tissue defects in humans, in healthy volunteers. The i...
This is a prospective observational biomarker study including patients with non-metastatic, soft-tissue sarcomas (STS) for whom neoadjuvant chemotherapy is considered as the best option by...
Clinically, understanding how the soft tissue envelope adapts to various forms of hip dysfunction could enhance both surgical and nonsurgical management. Very few studies have looked at soft tissue st...

Gustilo-Anderson IIIB tibial fractures and infected tibial nonunions represent particular challenges for the orthopaedic trauma surgeon. Debridement of dysvascular bone and soft tissues can create com...
Endemic fungal infections can present atypically and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any soft tissue infection not responding appropriately to antibiotic therapy. Diagnosis can b...
In the last decade the limited treatment options for patients with metastatic soft tissue sarcoma have expanded considerably. With the addition of olaratumab to first-line treatment with doxorubicin, ...
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".
The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
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 developing from some structure of the connective and subcutaneous tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in connective or soft tissue.
A sarcoma containing large spindle cells of smooth muscle. Although it rarely occurs in soft tissue, it is common in the viscera. It is the most common soft tissue sarcoma of the gastrointestinal tract and uterus. The median age of patients is 60 years. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1865)
