Adipose Tissue Transplantation and Its Role in Wound Healing

Adipose tissue, once considered a simple inert tissue functioning as insulation and energy storage, is now seen as one of the largest endocrine organs in the body, containing a variety of cell types, with potential applications for regenerative medicine. The adipose-derived stem cells found in fat grafts are hypothesized to aid in wound healing by means of differentiation into fibroblasts and keratinocytes and the release of pro-healing growth factors. This session will investigate the promising potential of autologous fat grafting in wound healing.
