The use of fibrin glue as a conduit is a step toward a usable graft to bridge peripheral nerve lesions and might be clinically interesting, given the widespread acceptance of fibin glue among the surgical community.
Regeneration potential and survival of transplanted undifferentiated adipose tissue-derived stem cells in peripheral nerve conduits.

For this large number of patients peri‐operative mortality can be predicted with the ASA grade and, to a lesser degree, with the cardiac risk index, and the combination of the two scores can increase the accuracy of prediction of peri-operative mortality.

The two methods were equally effective in forming granulation tissue, so one can profit from the other advantages of the vacuum-assisted treatment (reduced costs and improved comfort) knowing that the effect on the formation ofgranulation tissue is as good as with the traditional treatment.
Sonication of Removed Breast Implants for Improved Detection of Subclinical Infection
Sonication of removed implants may improve the diagnosis of implant infection by detachment of biofilms from the implant surface by detecting bacteria in 41% of removed breast implants.
Retrograde arterialized venous flap: An experimental study
It is indicated that blood circulation in the periphery of arterialized venous flaps can be enhanced by retrograde arterialization.
Fibrin matrix for suspension of regenerative cells in an artificial nerve conduit.
Precultivation of Engineered Human Nasal Cartilage Enhances the Mechanical Properties Relevant for Use in Facial Reconstructive Surgery
In the experimental setup, preculture for 2 weeks was necessary to engineer nasal cartilage grafts with enhanced mechanical properties relevant for clinical use in facial reconstructive surgery.
