In the present study, the 1-wall intrabony defects in the OFD group exhibited a large ratio of JE downgrowth
on root surface as compared to their counterparts in the OFD group, which suggests that the number of bone walls might have inherently compromised wound stability due to the defect morphology.
of rete ridges, small junctional nests, heavily pigmented epidermis, and melanophages.
The removal of the outer epithelium is perhaps acting similarly to a periodontal membrane, delaying the downgrowth
of epithelial cells and allowing more time for a connective tissue attachment to form, which takes five times longer .
This continuous mechanical disruption prevented epithelial downgrowth
and formation of a stable inner lining.
is an uncommon but serious complication which is characterized by cysts or translucent membranes (derived from ocular surface epithelial cells) covering the intraocular structures like corneal endothelium, iris surface, and ciliary body.
Secondary cysts: It is caused by epithelial downgrowth
following trauma /surgery/drugs, eg.
The literature repeatedly points to primary stability as essentially the most important osseointegration determinant because it allows for vital bone maintenance, clot stabilization, and prevention of soft tissue collapse and epithelial downgrowth
Fuchs' team determined that just before birth, the nascent sweat duct forms as a downgrowth
from progenitor cells in the epidermis, the same master cells that at different body sites give rise to mammary glands, hair follicles and many other epithelial appendages.
Chapters incorporate experience sections with scientific information on imaging and diagnostics, ocular surface disorders, infectious diseases, inflammatory diseases, neoplasia and epithelial downgrowth
, dystrophies and degenerations, and refractive surgery.
The specimen from the margin of the lesion showed downgrowth
of the eccrine epithelial cells arranged in interanastomosing cords embedded in loose fibrous stroma.
Keratoacanthoma presents as a downgrowth
of well-differentiated squamous epithelium.
