Background:Augmentation mastopexy in the massive weight loss population is challenging because of poor skin elasticity and lack of inframammary support. Despite several large studies of augmentation mastopexy in the literature, few data exist regarding this unique patient population. The authors exa

BackgroundCellular therapies for immunomodulation in vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) have gained importance due to their potential for minimization of immunosuppression. Adipose-derived (AD) mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) especially have shown encouraging potential. We investigated t

Background Monsplasty treats massive weight loss (MWL) patients with redundant tissues in the mons region. Monsplasty, however, is not a routine component of abdominal contouring. Objectives The goal of this study was to evaluate the changes in urinary and sexual functioning in patients who undergo abdominal contouring with monsplasty vs non-operated controls. Methods A prospective study was performed of patients who underwent abdominal contouring + monsplasty or no surgery. The Urogenital Distr...

Background: The progressive decline in tissue mechanical strength that occurs with aging is hypothesized to be due to a loss of resident stem cell number and function. As such, there is concern regarding use of autologous adult stem cell therapy in older patients. To abrogate this, many patients elect to cryopreserve the adipose stromal-vascular fraction (SVF) of lipoaspirate, which contains resident adipose stem cells (ASC). However, it is not clear yet if there is any clinical benefit from ban...

Fingertip injuries are a common problem requiring precise care for optimal results. The special sensory receptor sites in the glabrous skin of the fingertip are uniquely adapted for digital proprioception and should be preserved whenever possible. Devitalized tissues often require amputation to achieve a stable wound bed to allow for adequate healing. This leads to digit shortening and overall negatively impacts residual hand function in the affected limb. In this report we have presented an alt...

Abstract Current treatment options for severe burn wounds are often insufficient in reconstructing skin and soft tissue defects. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), a readily available source of multipotent stem cells, represent a promising therapy for the treatment of full-thickness burn wounds. Full-thickness burn wounds were created on the paraspinal region of athymic mice. A one-time, sub-eschar injection of 6.8 × 10 6 ASCs in PBS or PBS alone was administered at 24-h postoperatively. Time to...

People who have lost muscle could regain some muscle mass, movement and strength by implanting non-cellular supportive material from pig tissue. Jenna Dziki, Stephen Badylak, J. Peter Rubin and other colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh in the United States implanted extracellular matrix–the material secreted by cells to support surrounding tissue–derived from the urinary bladder, small intestine and skin of pigs at the sites of muscle tissue loss in 13 patients, followed by aggressive p...

Abstract The ideal filler for aesthetic surgery is inexpensive and easy to obtain, natural in appearance and texture, immunologically compatible, and long lasting without risk of infection. By most metrics, autologous fat grafts meet these criteria perfectly. Although facial fat grafting is now a commonly accepted surgical procedure, there has been a wave of activity applying stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies to aesthetic practice. This article addresses technical consideration...
