Scar Tissue


Presentation

  • The present procedure can expose pulmonary artery buried in scar tissue, resulting in making the lobectomy safer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Skin Discoloration
  • Atrophy and skin discoloration are the main side effects. Cryotherapy. Cryotherapy involves the scar being frozen off. Pressure therapy. Pressure therapy involves a type of pressure appliance worn over the area of the scar.[hopkinsmedicine.org]
Hip Dislocation
  • She suffered of excruciating left retrotrochanteric pain after the implantation of a cementless total hip replacement and revision because of recurrent hip dislocations. Walking was limited to short distances using two crutches.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hip Pain
  • For example, women often report that after a c-section, they never feel like they regain the ability to use their abdominals, and they complain of chronic low-back or hip pain.[denverpainandperformance.com]
Neglect
  • Deep partial or full-thickness burns if untreated, neglected, or managed conservatively can develop dysfunctional scar contractures with severe deformities and significant reduction in patient's activities of daily life.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • "She found the cat." figurative (damage psychologically) ( مَجاز ) يحدث أذًى نفسيًّا، يسبّب أذًى نفسيًّا His parents' neglect scarred the child. سبّب إهمال الوالدين أذًى نفسيًّا للطفل.[wordreference.com]

  • In hindsight, I can't believe I neglected purchasing this excellent book for so long. I'm a self confessed lover of auto-biographies and this did not disappoint.[amazon.co.uk]
Myelopathy
  • Late onset cervical myelopathy secondary to fibrous scar tissue formation around the epidural electrode should be considered a possible event associated with SCS therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Behavior Problem
  • It may also cause emotional, social, and behavioral problems, especially when it is located in exposed areas. To date, no gold standard exists for the treatment of scar tissue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

T Wave Alternans
  • Abstract Microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) is an electrocardiographic marker for predicting sudden cardiac death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • To date, no gold standard exists for the treatment of scar tissue. Autologous fat grafting has been introduced as a promising treatment option for scar tissue-related symptoms. However, the scientific evidence for its effectiveness remains unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Abrikossoff's tumor (AT) is a rare, predominantly benign, asymptomatic, solitary, less than three cm-in-size tumor with usually favorable prognosis after surgical excision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This work gives a promising outlook to new specific MRI probes for disease detection, prognosis, and monitoring disease progression or treatment response across a range of human conditions. Story Source: Materials provided by Wiley .[sciencedaily.com]
  • Adhesions Prognosis Adhesions requiring surgery commonly come back because surgery itself causes adhesions.[emedicinehealth.com]

Etiology

Pathophysiology

  • BACKGROUND: The association between epidural fibrosis and recurrent symptoms after lumbar spine surgery remains a matter of debate in scientific literature and the underlying pathophysiological mechanism has not been clearly elucidated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • According to a 2013 study conducted by Rodríguez and Galán del Río, fascia is the “skeleton of muscle fibers organized as a network and may be responsible for some of the pathophysiology and healing processes of muscular injuries.” 2 But injury is not[erikdalton.com]
  • The pathophysiology of interstitial lung diseases, particularly IPF, resembles that of cancer development.[jcancer.org]

Prevention

  • BACKGROUND: Silver dressings have been widely and successfully used to prevent cutaneous wounds, including burns, chronic ulcers, dermatitis and other cutaneous conditions, from infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Also, it is studied extensively and considered as a very promising preventive measure against hypertrophic scarring.[biomedcentral.com]
  • Causes and prevention A keloid is a type of raised scar tissue.[medicalnewstoday.com]
  • By restoring the range of movement in the area and preventing adhesions, massage can also help to prevent recurrences of injury in the area.[sagemassage.edu.au]
  • Bellamkonda’s team tested the system in rats and found the enzyme prevented scar tissue formation for up to six weeks.[reuters.com]
