Constant Rate Infusion of Lidocaine, Tumescent Anesthesia and Their Combination in Dogs Undergoing Unilateral Mastectomy.

Animals (Basel) 2021 Apr 29;11(5). Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Veterinary Sciences, University of Messina, 98168 Messina, Italy.

Tumescent anesthesia (TUM) is a technique that was initially used to perform liposuction under local anesthesia, which consists of the injection of such large volumes of local anesthetic until to produce swelling and firmness (tumescence) of the surgical area. The aim of this study was to compare the intraoperative analgesic efficacy of lidocaine (LID) constant rate infusion (CRI), of TUM, or their combination (LID/TUM) and the postoperative pain and analgesic requirement in dogs undergoing unilateral mastectomy. Twenty-four dogs were premedicated with dexmedetomidine (3 μg/kg) and methadone (0. Read More

Tumescent Anesthesia for Dermatosurgical Procedures Other Than Liposuction.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2020 Oct-Dec;13(4):275-282

Venkat Charmalaya, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Context: Tumescent local anesthesia is a form of local anesthesia, which is a technique in which a dilute local anesthetic solution is injected into the subcutaneous tissue until it becomes firm and tense. Originally developed to facilitate liposuction, the use of tumescent anesthesia has expanded to other dermatological and plastic surgery procedures, as well as to other disciplines, including endocrine and vascular surgeries. For infiltration local anesthesia, the conventional dosage of lidocaine is up to 4. Read More

Differentiation potential and mRNA profiles of human dedifferentiated adipose cells and adipose‑derived stem cells from young donors.

Mol Med Rep 2021 01 17;23(1). Epub 2020 Nov 17.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing 100191, P.R. China.

Dedifferentiated adipose cells (DAs) and adipose‑derived stem cells (ADSCs) are two of the primary types of stem cells derived from adipose tissue, which have been reported to possess similar characteristics, but also exhibit unique phenotypic and functional advantages. However, several reports have described inconsistent results regarding their differences in multilineage differentiation function. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, there are no studies assessing their myogenic ability, or the differences in the transcriptome between the two cell types derived from lipoaspirates via tumescent liposuction from the same donors.

Patient Saf Surg 2020 23;14:40. Epub 2020 Oct 23.

Department of Surgery, American University of Beirut Medical Center, P.O. Box 11-0236, Riad El-Solh, Beirut, 1107 2020 Lebanon.

Background: Liposuction and autologous fat transplantation represent widely used techniques in plastic surgery to correct or enhance contour irregularities in the face and body. While these techniques are assumed to be safe, liposuction and fat grafting impose a hidden risk for serious preventable surgical complications and adverse patient outcomes. We hereby report two cases of iatrogenic sciatic nerve injury and provide recommendations on how to prevent this serious surgical complication. Read More

Washington Township Medical Foundation, 2500 Mowry Ave #255, Fremont, CA 94538.

Liposuction and nonsurgical fat reduction modalities (ie, body contouring) are among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure in which adipose tissue is dislodged and suction is used to remove it. The procedure originally was performed with a regional nerve block or general anesthesia; a tumescent technique for local anesthesia now is used. Read More

Cause and management of lipedema-associated pain.

Dermatol Ther 2021 Jan 12;34(1):e14364. Epub 2020 Oct 12.

Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Städtisches Klinikum Dresden, Academic Teaching Hospital of the Technical University, Dresden, Germany.

Lipedema is a painful, underdiagnosed adipose tissue disorder, characterized by symmetrical swelling of the extremities due to subcutaneous fat deposition in the buttocks, thighs, legs, and arms, sparing the most distal part of the extremities. Although etiology and pathogenesis of lipedema is unclear, possible role of hormonal and genetic factors have been proposed previously. Patients with lipedema suffer from pain, easy bruising, tenderness, and disfigurement. Read More

The Impact of Lidocaine on Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Human Adipose Tissue Harvested by Liposuction and Used for Lipotransfer.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Apr 20;21(8). Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Department of Immunology, University Medicine Greifswald, 17489 Greifswald, Germany.

The local anesthetic lidocaine, which has been used extensively during liposuction, has been reported to have cytotoxic effects and therefore would be unsuitable for use in autologous lipotransfer. We evaluated the effect of lidocaine on the distribution, number, and viability of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs), preadipocytes, mature adipocytes, and leukocytes in the fatty and fluid portion of the lipoaspirate using antibody staining and flow cytometry analyses. Adipose tissue was harvested from 11 female patients who underwent liposuction. Read More

A Single-site Postmarket Retrospective Chart Review of Subdermal Coagulation Procedures with Renuvion.

Vaishali Doolabh

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Nov 20;7(11):e2502. Epub 2019 Nov 20.

Contemporary Plastic Surgery, Jacksonville, Fla.

Although tumescent liposuction provides debulking of body areas with excess subcutaneous fat and concurrent skin laxity, the ability to shrink and redrape the skin and soft tissue for added definition has remained an elusive goal. Many modalities employed to facilitate fat removal utilizing light energy, ultrasonic energy, or radiofrequency energy have provided modest skin shrinkage. Apyx Medical's (formerly Bovie Medical) Renuvion (previously branded as J-Plasma) has Food and Drug Administration clearance for the cutting, coagulation, and ablation of soft tissue. Read More

Improved Adipocyte Viability in Autologous Fat Grafting With Ascorbic Acid-Supplemented Tumescent Solution.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 10;83(4):464-467

From the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive, Aesthetic and Hand Surgery.

Introduction: In reconstructive surgery, fat volume augmentation is often necessary for esthetic or functional reasons. As an alternative to synthetic and xenogeneic materials, autologous fat grafting (AFG) based on liposuction is gaining popularity, yet successful transplantation and long-term volume maintenance are difficult. Standard tumescent solution formulations neglect adipocyte and stromal vascular fraction (SVF) cell survival during extraction, as well as SVF differentiation into adipocytes thereafter, all of which are crucial for the success of AFG.

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.
