Stromal Vascular Dystrophies

Actuality of the theme: Stromal vascular dystrophies develop in stroma or walls of vessels. This leads to the disturbance of the nourishment of the cell’s parenchyma, reduction in their function, or disturbance in the function of the organs, which consist of the connective tissue (valves of heart, joints, serous shells and other). These dystrophies frequently are encountered in the pathology of man and the knowledge of them is necessary for mastering of rheumatic diseases, hypertonic disease, and they can be the complication of a number of the diseases, which are studied in our course of special pathologic anatomy, and in the course of therapy, the knowledge of them is also necessary for doctor for diagnostics, preventive maintenance, prescribing of the therapy of many illnesses.

Purpose (general): To know how to determine the special morphological features of the separate forms of stromal vascular dystrophies, their reason and the mechanism of development, outcome, and their significance to the organism.

The methodical instructions for students practical work on the theme of Stromal vascular dystrophies

At the beginning of the lesson, you will be assessed on your understanding of the home tasks. Then test control will be given to check preparation of your home task. Independently, you must study macro-preparations of “Glazy Spleen”, “amyloidosis of kidney”, and micro-preparations of “hyalinosis of the vessels of spleen”, “amyloidosis of kidney” with hematoxylin-eosine and Congo-red staining, “Simple Heart Obesity”. Use the algorithm of morphological diagnostics of stromal vascular dystrophies (Appendix 2). Study the microphotograph and solve the situation tasks.

The lesson completes the analysis of the sum of the independent work of each student by assessing the description of micro-preparations and knowledge in mastering the test.
