Thousands of women who lost part of their breasts as a result of a breast tumor have a chance to restore what they have lost
Adipose tissue contains regenerative stem cells that can stimulate the growth of blood vessels, which will speed up the healing process. Stem cells are separated from fat cells. Then, using a special procedure, which is now undergoing clinical trials in hospitals in Swansea (Wales) and Glasgow (Scotland), doctors increase their concentration and strength. This uses a special device for extracting mesenchymal stem cells from adipose tissue called the Celution System, developed by Cytori.
Nearly 70% of women in the UK who have had breast cancer lose only part of the breast containing the tumor after surgery. Previously, in similar cases, plastic surgeons also attempted injections of fat cells, but they ended unsuccessfully. Now with the latest system, the chances of success are much higher.
Doctors believe that the new technique will benefit women who, as a result of a mastectomy, have an extremely unsightly "piece" of their breasts. “After using our technique, there are no scars,” says plastic surgeon Nadir Klondzhi. “And we are seeing a steady increase in new blood vessels that has never been achieved before.”
