Researchers have developed a new technique that allows stem cells to be put into plasters and bandages for wound healing.

Wound healing is a complex biological process, and interruptions at any step can lead to the development of non-healing, chronic wounds. As the incidence of chronic wounds is continuously increasing and conventional treatments often fail, novel treatments using stem cell-based therapies are being investigated.

Improving Restorative Surgery -- with Platelets

Lipotransfers are ideal for restorative surgery, but retention is a problem. HemaCare provided the platelets for a study examining just how platelet-rich plasma helps make the fat stick around.

In this age of crash diets and liposuction, it might sound surprising that some people receive fat transplants. But seriously, fat grafting is widely used and valued as a feasible method for addressing moderate defects caused by injuries, surgical removal of tumors, and congenital deficiencies. Fat grafting is safe and has the look and feel of normal soft tissue. However, long-term volume retention is suboptimal (30-70%), often requiring multiple surgeries.
