6,7] The current study reveals that while the intrinsic fibroelastic
barriers (eg, the conus elasticus) limit the spread of tumor in its earliest stages, tumors can spread freely within the defined space once these barriers are violated.
The normal avian lower eyelid contains a fibroelastic
tarsal plate, and meibomian glands are absent in both eyelids.
The nuchal ligament is an anatomic structure made of a fibroelastic
membrane that extends from the occipital bone to the spine of the seventh cervical vertebra.
The upper eyelid is short and thick, whereas the lower lid is thin, longer than the upper lid, and more mobile because it contains a fibroelastic
tarsal plate and is responsible for closing the eye.
Most small hepatic veins are lost without a trace, but a few medium-sized veins remain as fibroelastic
cords ("VOD" lesions) or rings of collagen bundles with the former lumen containing prolapsed hepatocytes (Figure 10, F).
Like previous workers, (2,3) we noted variation in the consistency of plaques; some areas were loose and myxoid, while others comprised dense, hypocellular, fibroelastic
The weakened portion of the metaphysis can be reinforced with a strut onlay allograft fixed with cables or fibroelastic
bands; care must be taken to be certain that all cables or bands pass deep to the radial nerve and not over the nerve.
Additionally, the presence of complete tracheal rings would prevent any stretch in the trachea, unlike in mammals where the fibroelastic
membrane and trachealis muscle can elongate in response to stress, making an exact fit more critical in birds.
In addition, digital rectal examination may reveal an extremely enlarged prostate with a normal fibroelastic
3] Studies have demonstrated that BOO is associated with changes in detrusor structure caused by smooth muscle hypertrophy, fibroelastic
hyperplasia, and collagen deposition in the bladder wall.
Surgeons then perform additional procedures over time, such as mitral or aortic valve repair, removal of endocardial fibroelastic
(EFE) tissue (tough tissue that can restrict the heart's pumping motion) and closure of atrial septal defects (gaps in the wall between the heart's left and right atriums).
1) The episclera is a fibroelastic
structure covering the sclera and is formed of two layers loosely joined together by connecting fibres.
