Cellular interaction of human endothelial progenitor cells and preadipocytes for adipose tissue engineering

Sandra Strassburg, Henrik Nienhueser, G. Björn Stark & Nestor Torio-Padron
Introduction: Autologous fat grafting suffers from the major disadvantage of significant resorption of the transplant due to an insufficient vascularisation. Thus, a novel strategy to enhance neovascularisation of adipose tissue transplants might be the co-implantation of preadipocytes with endothelial[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
