you very much for your question.
liver, also known as fatty liver disease (FLD), is a reversible condition
where large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells
via the process of steatosis (i.e. abnormal retention of lipids within
a cell). Despite having multiple causes, fatty liver can be considered
a single disease that occurs worldwide in those with excessive alcohol
intake and those who are obese (with or without effects of insulin
resistance). The condition is also associated with other diseases
that influence fat metabolism.
bladder is the organ that collects urine excreted by the kidneys before
disposal by urination.
Herniation of urinary bladder is a relatively uncommon however not
rare condition, where urinary bladder or ureter herniates into the
inguinal canal, scrotal sac or femoral canal.
of bladder is seen in 1-3% of inguinal hernias. It is seen in 10%
of men older than 50 years. Femoral hernias are more common in women.
These hernia has a predilection for right side.
Wall defects are a type of congenital defect that allows the stomach,the
intestines, or other organs to protrude through an unusual opening
that forms on the abdomen.
fat is confined fat, fat cells may cause inflammation.
process begins with inflammation.
edema is a fluid accumulation below the skin.
are the internal scars that form in all of us as we heal from an infection,
inflammation, surgery or trauma. Adhesions can cause a number of conditions,
including chronic pain, female infertility, bowel obstruction and
in the abdomen pull on parts of the intestines and sometimes cause
mass on the abdominal wall after surgery may pose significant diagnostic
and therapeutic problems and may raise concerns about the true pathogenesis
of such an entity.
measures to reduce the incidence of adhesions are the mainstay of
limiting the complications related to adhesions.
include using minimally invasive surgical procedures, meticulous surgical
technique, keeping tissues moist, reducing bleeding and the use of
adjuvant adhesions prevention barriers to keep the tissues from sticking
to each other.
adhesions form, they are hard to get rid of.
