Second-look arthroscopic findings of cartilage and meniscus repair after injection of adipose-derived regenerative cells in knee osteoarthrits: Report of two cases.

Regen Ther 2019 Dec 24;11:212-216. Epub 2019 Aug 24.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Joint Surgery Centre, Takatsuki General Hospital, 1-3-13, Kosobe-Cho, Takatsuki City, Osaka 561-1115, Japan.

Background: The purpose of this study was to use second-look arthroscopic findings and clinical assessment to determine outcome in two cases of knee osteoarthritis treated by intra-articular knee injection of adipose-derived regenerative cells (ADRCs).

Case Presentation: This study involved two patients who received ADRC therapy for knee osteoarthritis and completed the six-month post-treatment follow-up period. For each treatment, 130 mL of subcutaneous adipose tissue was harvested using tumescent liposuction technique and manual aspiration of tissue from the thigh using a suction cannula under local anesthesia in the operating room.

Comparison of the Viability and Yield of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ASCs) from Different Donor Areas.

In Vivo 2017 Nov-Dec;31(6):1229-1234

First Propaedeutic Department of Surgery, 'Hippocration' Hospital, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Background: Adipose tissue contains variable amounts of stem cells that have recently attracted increased interest due to their strong proliferative and differentiation capacity. However, significant heterogeneity exists in terms of stem cell yield and viability profile among individuals as well as different donor areas.

Materials And Methods: Between June 2016 and July 2016, forty (40) women underwent outpatient cosmetic liposuction procedures conferring a total of 53 lipoaspirates; inner thigh (n=13), outer thigh (n=9), abdomen (n=9), waist (n=16) and inner knee (n=6). Read More

Content of Soluble Factors and Characteristics of Stromal Vascular Fraction Cells in Lipoaspirates from Different Subcutaneous Adipose Tissue Depots.

Aesthet Surg J 2016 Jul 23;36(7):831-41. Epub 2016 Feb 23.

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Hand Surgery - Burn Center, Medical Faculty, RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany.

Background: Although fat grafting has emerged as a major force in plastic, reconstructive, and aesthetic surgery, some questions regarding its reliability and regenerative potential remain unanswered.

Objectives: The authors examined the influence of three anatomic areas on various lipoaspirate properties to identify the most appropriate harvest site for fat-grafting procedures.

Methods: Lipoaspirates from 25 healthy patients were harvested from the abdomen, inner thigh, and knee. Read More

Laser lipolysis using a 924- and 975-nm laser diode in the lower extremities.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2013 Apr 26;37(2):246-53. Epub 2013 Jan 26.

La Paz University Hospital, Madrid, Spain.

Background: Laser technology provides the desired destruction of adipose tissue, hemostasis, and good skin retraction with a minimum of discomfort and a quick return to normal life for the patient. Here we present our experience with the use of laser-assisted liposuction (LAL) with a 924- and 975-nm laser diode and compare it with traditional liposuction alone.

Methods: A total of 430 patients were reviewed for this study. Read More

Photographic measurements in 301 cases of liposuction and abdominoplasty reveal fat reduction without redistribution.

Eric Swanson

Plast Reconstr Surg 2012 Aug;130(2):311e-322e

Leawood, Kans. From the Swanson Center.

Background: There are no published studies of liposuction or abdominoplasty in a large number of patients using measurements of body dimensions. In the absence of rigorous data, some investigators have proposed that fat returns after liposuction.

Methods: A prospective study was undertaken among predominantly nonobese consecutive patients undergoing 301 liposuction and abdominoplasty procedures meeting the study criteria (inclusion rate, 70. Read More

Sources of processed lipoaspirate cells: influence of donor site on cell concentration.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2008 Aug;122(2):614-618

Porto Alegre, Brazil From the Hand Surgery and Microsurgery Service and the Biomedical Research Institute of the Hospital São Lucas, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul.

Background: Recently, adipose tissue harvested by liposuction has been identified as a source of processed lipoaspirate cells. The aim of this study was to determine the concentration of processed lipoaspirate cells in adipose tissue obtained by liposuction from different harvest areas in women.

Methods: A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted in 25 women in whom liposuction in four or more different zones in the same procedure was indicated. Read More

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, CHUV, 46 Rue du Bugnon, 1011, Lausanne, Switzerland.

The goal of this study was to describe the MRI characteristics of posttraumatic pseudolipomas. Ten patients with previous history of blunt trauma or local surgery were investigated with MRI at the level of their deformity. The etiology was blunt trauma in eight patients and postoperative trauma in two. Read More

In search of improved fat transfer viability: a quantitative analysis of the role of centrifugation and harvest site.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2004 Jan;113(1):391-5; discussion 396-7

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas 75390-9132, USA.

Fat grafting is an unpredictable procedure that continues to challenge the field of plastic surgery due to irregular resorption. Applications for this procedure are broad in both reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery. Fat grafts are carefully obtained and manipulated to obtain better graft takes and results, yet there is no universal agreement on what constitutes an ideal methodology. Read More

Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Clinique St. Jospeh, Liège, Belgium.

The last decade has been marked by the development of liposuction. A better knowledge of the anatomy of fat tissue, together with an improvement in different devices, has made our results more predictable. However, such areas as the chin, anterior and inner thigh, and knee have remained "difficult. Read More

Liposuction: more curettage than aspiration.

A A Mottura

Aesthetic Plast Surg 1991 ;15(3):209-14

Centro de Cirugía Estética, Córdoba, República Argentina.

After infiltration with epinephrine solution in each adipose area, an 8- or 10-mm cannula, without the suction tube connected, was introduced. With a curettage maneuver and by directing the cannula upward, the fat began to come out spontaneously. After obtaining a considerable amount of fat, the suction tube was connected and the remaining fat tissue aspirated at low suction power (250 mm Hg). Read More
