Pathological examination of the prostate revealed adenocarcinoma in most of the prostate; this expanded beyond the prostatic capsule and diffusely invaded lymphatic vessels
We showed that the mean numbers of lymphatic vessels
in the cancerous stroma with positive podoplanin staining was higher.
The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels
raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it.
These lesions can be classified in to four categories: superficial cutaneous lymphangioma (composed of small, thin-walled lymphatics), cavernous lymphangioma (composed of dilated lymphatic vessels
with surrounding adventitia), cystic lymphangioma (consisting of huge, macroscopic lymphatic spaces with surrounding fibrovascular tissues and smooth muscle), and diffuse systemic lymphangioma (in which lymphatic channels appear to be dissecting dense collagen bundles).
In primary lymphoedema the lymphatic vessels
themselves are often abnormal.
1,2) Lymphangiomas result from the lack of adequate drainage from sequestered lymphatic vessels
and are considered to be lymphatic hamartomas.
Should lymphatic vessels
fail to connect and drain, they may result in a large, multilocal cyst.
Jack was born with cystic hygroma, which causes lymphatic vessels
in the head and neck to become malformed, and spent the first nine months of his life in intensive care.
Such an approach is more likely to preserve sexual functioning and has been an option only since the discovery that cancer in the vulvar region spreads, not by direct extension to adjacent tissues but rather by embolization through the lymphatic vessels
, he said at the meeting, which was cosponsored by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
The most common cause of isolated swelling is a blockage in one of the major lymphatic vessels
Obstruction of the lymphatic vessels
by the excess muscle growth can lead to leakage of fluid into the chest cavity (pleural effusion).
We believe this is due to Lymphoseek's rapid transit through lymphatic vessels
and targeted binding to the mannose binding receptors (MBR) within key predictive nodes.
