RepletionThe Latin term crowded came to our tongue What repletion. The concept refers to process and result of replenishing: make something full (full). For instance: “Once the filling of this deposit takes place, we will have to find a new space”, “The filling of the container forced the scientists to look for another receptacle”, “There is still a lot to fill this place”.

The gastric filling refers to the amount of food that is inside the stomach: the more food, the more full. Typically, gastric filling is scored in different ways, forming a scale. One possibility is to start with an empty stomach (with no gastric filling) and work your way up to a full stomach (with full gastric filling).

In this sense, it is possible to establish a gastric filling mean in a certain group, analyzing the interior of the stomachs of the specimens. The coefficient in question can be obtained from the division of the full stomachs by the totality of the stomachs studied. Suppose that eight full stomachs are recorded in a set of sixteen individuals: the mean gastric filling will be 0.5. In other words: it is detected that there is a full stomach for every two stomachs.

The bladder filling, on the other hand, makes mention of the capacity of the urinary bladder. When this organ reaches its filling limit, a pressure is exerted that results in its contraction and that opens the internal sphincter, causing the desire to urinate. When you urinate, your bladder will eventually be emptied; As is known, certain disorders impede the proper functioning of said organ, which is why the sensations described above are not experienced normally.

It is known by the name of tubal polyps to spotlights of tissue Small endometrial tubes that are located in the intramural part of the fallopian tubes and present as filling defects with an oval shape and dimensions less than 1 centimeter, adjacent to the horn of the uterus. Tubal polyps do not carry symptoms and usually do not cause obstruction or dilation.

The endometrial tissue is that of the mucosa called endometrium, which covers the surface internal uterus and consists of a prismatic simple epithelial tissue (Its cells are much taller than they are wide and its nucleus is ovoid) and it may or may not have cilia (cellular structures that look similar to hair), a stroma (framework or framework of an organ), and glands.

RepletionAnother concept in which attention to the degree of filling of the uterus is fundamental is that of myometrial folds. These are remnants of the Müllerian duct fusion process (presented by the embryo as part of its genitourinary organs), which takes place along the developing of the fetus.

Myometrial folds can be seen as lines parallel to the long axis of the uterine cavity on hysterosalpingography (the radiograph used to to explore said cavity and fallopian tubes), and cannot alter the endometrium.

As with endometrial lesions, it is recommended to assess this phenomenon during the initial phases of the examination, since then the uterus presents a low repletion. Otherwise, introducing a higher contrast may obliterate the canal.

It is called endometrial pathology to that which affects the endometrium and is usually associated with the appearance of simple or multiple filling defects that, as mentioned in the previous paragraph, are more easily appreciated at the beginning of the examination; If the excess of contrast produces obliteration of the uterine cavity, then it is possible to aspirate the contrast at the end of the study for a correct observation.
