For the regeneration of bone in tissue engineering applications, it is essential to provide cues that support neovascularization. This can be achieved by cell-based therapies using mature endothelial cells (ECs) or endothelial progenitor cells. In this context, ECs were used in various in vivo studies in combination with primary osteoblasts to enhance(More)
Postnatal vasculogenesis is mediated by mobilization of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) from bone marrow and homing to ischemic tissues. This feature emphasizes this cell type for cell-based therapies aiming at the improvement of neovascularization in tissue engineering applications and regenerative medicine. In animal models, it was demonstrated that(More)
Reconstruction of large bone defects still represents a major medical challenge. In recent years tissue engineering has developed techniques based on adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that could represent an attractive therapeutical option to treat large bone defects in the future. It has been demonstrated in various animal models that ex vivo expanded(More)
Angiogenesis is a fundamental process in bone formation, remodeling, and regeneration. Moreover, for the regeneration of bone in tissue engineering applications, it is essential to support neovascularization. This can be achieved by cell-based therapies using primary endothelial cells, which are able to form functional blood vessels upon implantation. In(More)
BACKGROUND Panniculus morbidus is characterized by an edematous, painful hanging abdominal mass, due to laxity and redundancy of the abdominal skin in morbid obesity, particularly after massive weight loss. Panniculectomy, by wedge resection, is a salvage procedure with high satisfaction rates though associated with high complication rates. Here we(More)
PURPOSE Penile shaft skin defects represent demanding reconstructive tasks because a high degree of flexibility and stability of the skin grafts are essential to allow regular erections and sexual intercourse. METHODS A new concept of tailoring skin grafts to the erect penis by intra-operative application of prostaglandin E1 and postoperative(More)
To compare the visualization of cortical fractures, cortical defects, and orthopedic screws in a dedicated extremity flat-panel computed tomography (FPCT) scanner and a multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) scanner.We used feet of European roe deer as phantoms for cortical fractures, cortical defects, and implanted orthopedic screws. FPCT and MDCT scans(More)
Introduction: Autologous fat transfer has recently become an increasingly popular surgical procedure and comprises harvesting, processing and transplantation of adipose tissue, as well as professional follow-up care. This method, as a surgical procedure, can be utilised for trauma-, disease- or age-related soft tissue volume deficits and soft tissue(More)
Objectives/Hypothesis: To present a novel technique based on the combination of aesthetic and reconstructive techniques for the radical and safe excision of preauricular sinus along with minimal cosmetic impairing. Study Design: Case report, description of surgical method and brief overview of the literature. Methods: In a patient with bilateral(More)
BACKGROUND Aesthetic surgery is an integral component of plastic surgery. Despite its importance, adequate training in aesthetic surgery is met with challenges. Although the educational benefit of resident clinics has been demonstrated, such clinics are rarely found outside the United States. The objective of the present study was to assess safety and(More)
