Recipient Site Pre-conditioning in Fat Grafting

2018-01-17 10:14:13 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to investigate the preparation of the recipient site prior to autologous fat grafting (AFG) using different methods.


Autologous fat grafting is emerging as a powerful tool for soft tissue reconstruction and augmentation and is widely used in plastic surgery. However, there is great variability in terms of long-term graft retention (survival). Moreover, the recipient site preparation is the phase of the procedure which received less attention in clinical and pre-clinical investigations. To provide information regarding an effective preparation of the recipient site may potentially lead to improvements in fat graft survival.

Fractures and Subsequent Graft Loss and Mortality among Older Kidney Transplant Recipients.

Older adults who undergo kidney transplantation (KT) are living longer with a functioning graft and are at risk for age-related adverse events including fractures. Understanding recipient, transplant,...

BETA-2 Score is an Early Predictor of Graft Decline and Loss of Insulin Independence After Pancreatic Islet Allotransplantation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The clinical entity characterized by anorexia, diarrhea, loss of hair, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, growth retardation, and eventual death brought about by the GRAFT VS HOST REACTION.

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.

Substances that are energetically unstable and can produce a sudden expansion of the material, called an explosion, which is accompanied by heat, pressure and noise. Other things which have been described as explosive that are not included here are explosive action of laser heating, human performance, sudden epidemiological outbreaks, or fast cell growth.

An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.

The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
