Based on imaging studies, lymphangiomas have no distinctive appearance on CT scan; nonetheless, they can sometimes present with the coarse trabeculation of the vertebra while the shape of the vertebra is preserved.
The bladder mucosa was normal except mild trabeculation. Histological examination of the polyp confirmed the diagnosis of fibromyxoid NA because of pseudovascular tubular structures that were immunostained with ceratine 7, panceratine, PAX-2 and PAX-8 (Figure 2).
Endocardial boundary is not accurately localizable due to variable trabeculation pattern.
To the Editor: Moderator band (MB) is a part of the septomarginal trabeculation, which not only supports the anterior papillary muscle (APM) of the tricuspid valve but also connects it to the free wall.
About a month later, the defendant performed cystoscopy, which revealed an obstructing, large (golf-ball-sized) ball valve lateral lobe of the prostate; significant bladder trabeculation; and resolving erythema from a prior infection.
[1,4] Postnatal diagnosis is confirmed by a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) in the presence of a dilated posterior urethra, often with bladder trabeculation and diverticula.
In the case of acquired diverticulum secondary to bladder outlet obstruction as is suspected in V.V., a defect in the smooth muscle caused by trabeculation offers an outlet for the increased intravesicle pressure.
The RBUS should include assessment of cranio-caudal length of the kidneys, degree of echogenicity and cortico-medullary differentiation, SFU grade of hydronephrosis, maximal APD on transverse axial view of the renal pelvis, diameter of both proximal and distal ureter if dilated, the degree of bladder filling, the detrusor thickness or presence of bladder trabeculation, diverticula, ureterocele and posterior urethral dilation in males.
The current quantitative analysis and CT images also clearly show that the graft incorporation and trabeculation occurs from the periphery to the center, in a centripetal fashion, rather than the reverse, as has been suggested [6].
Increased intravesical pressure may cause hydroureteronephrosis or severe trabeculation of the bladder wall (3).
Ventrodorsal (Fig 1B) and right lateral orthogonal radiographs revealed that the right humerus was diffusely mottled in opacity with loss of healthy bone trabeculation. Poorly defined regions of lysis were identified within the proximal and distal right humeral metaphyses.
