3,422 Possible Causes for elastic

  • Atrophic Vaginitis

    The condition decreases elasticity of the vaginal wall making it more fragile and susceptible to injuries.[] See also vaginitis . atrophic vaginitis Noninfectious inflammation of the vaginal mucosa secondary to epithelial thinning, with loss of elasticity of the vaginal wall.[] It becomes less elastic, more fragile, and more easily injured.[]

  • Cutis Laxa

    Transmission electronic microscopy showed reduction of the elastic fibers, a granular degeneration of the elastic tissue was found and collagen fibers were normal.[] Abstract Elastic fibres are critical connective tissue components providing elasticity and resilience to skin and other tissues.[] Elastin, fibulin-4, fibulin-5 and latent transforming growth factor-β-binding protein 4 are secreted proteins which form elastic fibers and are involved in the sequestration[]

  • Arteriosclerosis

    […] for the elastic artery as much as 21.7% for the severe stenosis of 75%.[] […] of visco elasticity in this paper.[] Arteriosclerosis is a general term for several disorders that cause thickening and loss of elasticity in the arterial wall.[]

  • Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

    No clumping, fragmentation, or calcification of the elastic tissue was seen.[] In these patients a number of complications, sometimes serious, has been recognized to be related to ocular and vascular elastic tissue defects.[] This immunostaining demonstrated a band-like loss of elastic tissue along the papillary dermis.[]

  • Granulomatous Slack Skin

    Granulomatous slack skin (GSS) is characterized by the slow evolution of bulky, erythematous skin folds that have a granulomatous histology, and show destruction of dermal elastic[] MGC infiltrated more dominantly into a deeeper layer of the skin with the elastic fibres there almost completely disappearing.[] […] clinically by the evolution of circumscribed erythematous lax skin masses, especially in the body folds, and histologically by a granulomatous T-cell infiltrate and loss of elastic[]

  • Knee Sprain

    Once the area is thoroughly cooled, apply an elastic wrap to compress the injury.[] The next step might be to wrap with an elastic bandage to support the knee and then to start exercise and massage.[] You may need to wear an elastic bandage. This helps keep your injured knee from moving too much while it heals.[]

  • Muscle Strain

    Muscle Strain (pull/tear) Muscles are made up of elastic/stretchable tissue. They are anchored to our bones by tendons (which are not elastic).[] Elastic Bandage You can speed up the healing process of a pulled muscle with the help of an elastic bandage.[] Instead of fibers running parallel to each other in an organized fashion with their normal degree of elasticity / flexibility, the fibers now run every possible direction[]

  • Ankle Sprain

    She received instructions for active exercise and for resistive exercise with elastic tubing.[] Elastic tape or braces are usually not helpful because the elastic gives too much around the joint.[] Compress the injury with an elastic wrap, but not so tightly that you block circulation and lose feeling in your toes.[]

  • Familial Cutaneous Collagenoma

    Elastic tissue stains demonstrated a proportionately diminished number of abnormal elastic fibers intermingled with the collagen bundles.[] Skin biopsy demonstrated dense, coarse collagen fibers in the dermis and a decrease in elastic fibers.[] A predominance of densely packed collagen bundles of normal morphology with a marked decrease in abnormal elastic tissue were the major ultrastructural features.[]

  • Pulmonary Emphysema

    The elastic tissue fibers appear to play a minor role in determining the elastic properties of the lung.[] elastic units.[] KEYWORDS: alveolar capillary; alveolar wall; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; elastic fiber; emphysema[]
