[1] They are classified as cutaneous leiomyomas, vascular leiomyomas, and leiomyomas of soft tissues. Leiomyomas of the limbs are divided into superficial and deep soft-tissue tumors.
Several authors have proposed various histogenetic theories to explain the origin of cartilage in the soft tissues of the oral cavity, but the exact cause of such cartilaginous masses is unknown [3, 16].
In the past, the existence of leiomyomas of deep soft tissue was considered controversial.
Some reports mentioned that complex articular fractures can be treated by ring external fixators and minimally invasive osteosynthesis, with the advantage of respecting the soft tissue. However, current existing evidence from the latest meta-analysis does not support the conclusion that external fixators are better than open reduction and internal fixation in managing complex tibial plateau fractures.[21]
Although the dental and skeletal effects of expansion using dental or skeletal anchorage are well documented, little information is available concerning the overlying soft tissue changes following these treatment modalities.
Ageing is associated with a decline in muscle mass, strength, number of muscle fibres, changes in muscle contraction and slowing of nerve fibers that activate muscle making them prone to soft tissue injuries.
John Hutchinson, a professor of evolutionary biomechanics at the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London, told (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/02/anchiornis-bird-like-dinosaur-feathers-lasers-soft-tissue-science/) National Geographic the laser imaging technology was "part of a flurry of tools emerging that help us to understand the evolution of soft tissues along extinct lineages." He added that the research reinforces what scientists already believed to be true about the dinosaur's anatomy, especially the "understanding of the shape of the arms."

They proposed modeling methods based on FEM for the interaction between a needle and soft tissues. A recent survey proposed by Abolhassani et al.
Whereas some investigators have noted the importance of the soft tissue in the determination of facial aesthetics on the basis that soft tissue behaves independently from the underlying skeleton because of the individual differences in soft tissue thickness [4-7].
The first part of the book deals with basic principles, with sections on principles of soft-tissue techniques, basic anatomy and functions of soft tissues and bone, mechanisms of soft-tissue injury, and factors related to healing soft tissues and bone.
