Purified Adipose-Derived Stromal Cells Provide Superior Fat Graft Retention Compared with Unenriched Stromal Vascular Fraction PLASTIC AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY Zielins, E. R., Brett, E. A., Blackshear, C. P., Flacco, J., Ransom, R. C., Longaker, M. T., Wan, D. C. 2017; 139 (4): 911–14


Cell-assisted lipotransfer has shown much promise as a technique to improve fat graft retention in both mouse and human studies. However, the literature varies as to whether fresh stromal vascular fraction or culture-expanded adipose-derived stromal cells are used to augment volume retention. The authors' study sought to determine whether there was a significant advantage to using adipose-derived stromal cells over unpurified stromal vascular fraction cells in a mouse model of cell-assisted lipotransfer.
