chabaudi has several effects on the splenic tissue
on the histological and biochemical levels.
13) The onset of a pathologic process in splenic tissue
apparently causes the accessory to remain functional and thus we find documents reporting increased frequency of accessories in those with certain splenic diseases.
Failure of the splenic tissue
to enhance on contrast-enhanced CT indicates infarction in these cases.
When gonadal descent begins, the attached splenic tissue
follows the gonadal path.
Under such circumstances the gonad, in its descent during the latter weeks of intrauterine life, might readily drag along a tail of developing juxtagonadal splenic tissue
Generally, this means that the splenic tissue
will be brighter than the normal surrounding pancreatic tissue.
Failure to find and destroy accessory splenic tissue
may lead to treatment failure in case of primary splenic malignancy.
When splenogonadal fusion is suspected, a technetium sulfur colloid scan should be performed to confirm the presence of ectopic splenic tissue
6) Splenectomy was the standard treatment 20 years ago, but currently attempts should be made to repair and preserve as much splenic tissue
as possible to prevent the increased risk of infection following splenectomy.
In traumatic injuries of the spleen minimal bleeding and maximal functional splenic tissue
Accessory spleen and residual splenic tissue
(splenosis) are common causes of relapse.
Partial splenectomy with omentoplasty may be reserved for cases with unresectable cysts tightly adherent to adjacent structures and is considered a risky operation because it is difficult to have vascular control when incising the splenic tissue
Some resembled hepatic or splenic tissue
in color and texture.
Mitchell's group detected ribosomal RNA specific to M tuberculosis in splenic tissue
of sarcoid patients.
