Treatment of lipedema by low-volume micro-cannular liposuction in tumescent anesthesia: Results in 111 patients.

Dermatol Ther 2019 Jan 14:e12820. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Center of Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine, Städtisches Klinikum Dresden, Dresden, Germany.

Lipedema is a painful disease of subcutaneous adipose tissue leading to bilateral increase of leg and/or arm volume, but sparing hands and feet. Although conservative treatment with complex decongestive therapy has been considered as the fundamental treatment, micro-cannular liposuction in tumescent anesthesia has become a surgical option. We report on 111 patients mostly with advanced lipedema treated by this technique in our center between 2007 and 2018. Read More

Low osmolality and shear stress during liposuction impair cell viability in autologous fat grafting.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2017 May 17;70(5):596-605. Epub 2017 Feb 17.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery, University Hospital of Basel, Basel, BS, Switzerland.

Background: Liposuction and subsequent autologous fat grafting have become essential techniques for fat augmentation in plastic surgery. However, standard harvesting techniques that ensure the survival of adipocytes and stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cells and thus preserve the transplanted fat volume are lacking. In particular, the effect of different parameters of the tumescent solution has not been studied in this context. Read More

Tumescent Liposuction without Lidocaine.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2016 Aug 9;4(8):e829. Epub 2016 Aug 9.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Nevada School of Medicine, Las Vegas, Nev.

Background: Our previous study demonstrated that lidocaine has a negative impact on adipose-derived stem cell (ASC) survival. Currently for large-volume liposuction, patients often undergo general anesthesia; therefore, lidocaine subcutaneous anesthesia is nonessential. We hypothesized that removing lidocaine from tumescent might improve stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and ASC survival from the standard tumescent with lidocaine. Read More

First Dutch guidelines on lipedema using the international classification of functioning, disability and health.

Phlebology 2017 Apr 9;32(3):152-159. Epub 2016 Jul 9.

2 Dutch Expertise Centre of Lympho-vascular Medicine, Hospital Nij Smellinghe, Drachten, The Netherlands.

Introduction Lipedema is a chronic, progressive condition that can result in considerable disability. In 2011, the Dutch Society of Dermatology and Venereology organized a task force to create guidelines on lipedema, using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health of the World Health Organization. Guideline development Clinical questions on significant issues in lipedema care were proposed, involving (1) making the diagnosis of lipedema; (2) clinimetric measurements for early detection and adequate follow-up; and (3) treatment.

Lipedema – lack of evidence for the involvement of tyrosine kinases.

J Biol Regul Homeost Agents 2016 Jan-Mar;30(1):161-3

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Academic Teaching Hospital Dresden-Friedrichstadt, Dresden, Germany.

Lipedema is a chronic disorder characterized by abnormal distribution of subcutaneous adipose tissue on the proximal extremities, pain and capillary fragility. Its etiology is unknown but in analogy to central obesity, chronic low-level inflammation in adipose tissue has been suggested. There seems to be an increased propagation of pre-adipocytes into mature adipocytes contributing to the massive enlargement of subcutaneous adipose tissue. Read More

Specialist approaches to managing lipoedema.

Authors:
Amy Fetzer

Br J Community Nurs 2016 Apr;Suppl:S30-5

Freelance journalist and consultant specialising in health and sustainability.

While there is no proven cure for lipoedema, early detection is key as specialist treatments, complemented by self-management techniques, can improve symptoms and prevent progression. There is no universal approach as the correct treatment or treatments will depend on each patient's particular circumstances; however, when chosen early and appropriately, interventions can provide huge benefits. The most common treatments in the management of lipoedema include compression, manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), tumescent liposuction, intermittent pneumatic compression therapy (IPC), kinesio taping, deep oscillation therapy, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Estimated Maximal Safe Dosages of Tumescent Lidocaine.

Anesth Analg 2016 May;122(5):1350-9

From the *Department of Dermatology, University of California, Irvine, Medical Sciences, Irvine, California; and †Department of Statistics, University of California, Riverside, Riverside, California.

Background: Tumescent lidocaine anesthesia consists of subcutaneous injection of relatively large volumes (up to 4 L or more) of dilute lidocaine (≤1 g/L) and epinephrine (≤1 mg/L). Although tumescent lidocaine anesthesia is used for an increasing variety of surgical procedures, the maximum safe dosage is unknown. Our primary aim in this study was to measure serum lidocaine concentrations after subcutaneous administration of tumescent lidocaine with and without liposuction. Read More

On Beyond Lidocaine: Reconsidering Local Anesthetics in Tumescent Liposuction-A Critical Review.

Authors:
Henry C Hsia

Ann Plast Surg 2016 Feb;77 Suppl 1:S66-9

From the Section of Plastic Surgery, Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT.

The use of tumescent solution in liposuction is now considered standard of care; however, much debate still exists regarding its ideal components, especially surrounding the inclusion of local anesthetics. This article reviews the discussion regarding the use of local anesthetics in tumescent liposuction and how it may evolve in the future. The need for local anesthetic additives in tumescent liposuction has been questioned, and the use of longer-acting agents discouraged; however, increasing number of reports in recent years have described the increasingly widespread use of tumescent anesthesia where a wetting solution is infiltrated to achieve anesthesia in an operative field for procedures other than liposuction.
