Endolumenal Gastric Pouch and Gastrojejunal Anastomosis Reduction

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


Registry is designed to evaluate use of endolumenal tissue anchors for soft tissue approximation to repair a dilated gastric pouch and gastrojejunal anastomosis in post-Roux-En-Y gastric bypass patients presenting with weight regain. Registry will also assess tissue anchor durability.

MFSD2A expression predicts better prognosis in gastric cancer.

Major facilitator superfamily domain containing-2A (MFSD2A) is reported to correlated with some tumors, but its clinical significance in gastric cancer (GC) is still unknown. The expression of MFSD2A ...

Gene microarray analysis of the circular RNAs expression profile in human gastric cancer.

Human gastric cancer is a common malignant neoplasm of the digestive system and represents a threat to human health worldwide. The mechanisms underlying gastric cancer germination and development are ...

The clinical significance of miR-335, miR-124, miR-218 and miR-484 downregulation in gastric cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Substances used to cause adherence of tissue to tissue or tissue to non-tissue surfaces, as for prostheses.

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.

Neoplasms composed of fatty tissue or connective tissue made up of fat cells in a meshwork of areolar tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in adipose tissue.

Generating tissue in vitro for clinical applications, such as replacing wounded tissues or impaired organs. The use of TISSUE SCAFFOLDING enables the generation of complex multi-layered tissues and tissue structures.

A benign neoplasm of fibrous tissue in which there are numerous small and large, frequently dilated, vascular channels. (Stedman, 25th ed)
