We create a bone window by freeing the bone from the overlying fibrofatty
tissue and periosteum.
Other findings, such as the Comb sign (engorgement of the vasa recta), fibrofatty
proliferation, and stranding in the perienteric fat also indicate active inflammation.
The 2006 guidelines note that fibrofatty
changes in the right ventricle of ARVC patients may interfere with adequate lead positioning and arrhythmia sensing (11).
3-5) The precise aetiology is unknown; however, there are many hypotheses suggesting that it is due to fibrofatty
tumours impinging on nerves supplying the enlarged digit, or due to alteration of somatic cells during limb bud development.
Fontaine et al (2) described an entity, called arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, which was characterized, by localized deficiency or fibrofatty
tissue replacement of right ventricular myocardium.
Colocalization implicates TGF-beta in fibrofatty
pad reduction over the heads of the metatarsal bones is a common sign of diabetic neuropathy, and this pad thinning reduces the ability of the diabetic foot to absorb increased plantar pressure and increases the risk of ulceration in this area.
Received fresh, labeled 'Right Breast biopsy, long suture-lateral, short suture-superior, ink-anterior,' is a portion of fibrofatty
breast tissue (4.
MRI characteristics of ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) UC CD Submucosal stripe + - Full thickness enhancement - + Skip lesions - + Abscesses - + Fistula - + Involvement terminal ileum [+ or -] + Fibrofatty

Pressure lesions are fibrofatty
lesions that occur in the subcutaneous fat.
2) Differentiation must also be made from Crohn's disease, where fibrofatty
changes (which are characterized by ulcerations along the mesenteric border) are present, extending into the leaves of mesentery with fatty infiltration, thickening, and retraction.
The biopsy was reviewed at our center and consisted of a single slide housing a small fragment of fibrofatty
tissue, which was infiltrated by crushed small blue cells.
