Bone allografts are commonly used by orthopedists to provide a mechanical support and template for cellular colonization and tissue repair. There is an increasing demand for bone graft substitutes that are safe and easy to store but which are equally effective in supporting new bone growth. In this study, we compared three different human bone allografts:(More)
After more than 50 years of research, airway transplantation remains a major challenge in the fields of thoracic surgery and regenerative medicine. Five principal types of tracheobronchial substitutes, including synthetic prostheses, bioprostheses, allografts, autografts and bioengineered conduits have been evaluated experimentally in numerous studies.(More)
BACKGROUND Seven years of experimental research provided a valuable tracheal substitute, the aortic allograft, which can promote the regeneration of epithelium and cartilage. In human application, both fresh and preserved aortic allografts could be used. The optimal method of aortic allograft preservation remains to be evaluated. This study assessed the use(More)
A new protocol for cryopreservation of arteries frozen at -80 degrees C was compared to the reference protocol for cryopreservation at -150 degrees C and to freshly harvested arteries. The aim of the study is to evaluate both protocols as global procedures to freeze and thaw arteries commonly used in tissue banks. Changes in mechanical properties of rabbit(More)
BACKGROUND Weak D Types 1, 2, and 3 recipients cannot be immunized when exposed to D antigen. Molecular biology is very efficient to type weak D variants but rarely implemented in daily practice. The serologic typing practice of weak D in a Caucasian patient population was analyzed and a transfusion strategy is proposed. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Samples(More)
BACKGROUND Pneumonectomies for lung cancer are associated with a high postoperative mortality, especially when right-sided, after neoadjuvant radiochemotherapy, and in patients over 70 years of age. Preliminary studies in our laboratory have shown that aortic grafts could be valuable airway substitutes. We report the first human bronchial transplantation of(More)
PURPOSE Cholera toxin and isoproterenol (β-adrenergic receptor agonist) are largely used to enhance cell proliferation. The aim of the study was to assess the effects of cholera toxin and isoproterenol on growth and differentiation of cells cultured from human superficial limbal explants. METHODS Limbal epithelial cells were cultured from superficial(More)
Stem cells may represent an excellent strategy to improve the healing of skin ulcers. Today the administration mode of stem cells to skin defects remains unsatisfactory. Delivering stem cells with topical treatments represents a new strategy and answering the patients' need. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) have been shown to improve wound healing of(More)
