Commentary from Dr. Rubin & Dr. Vial

Commentary on: Isolation and Differentiation Potential on Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells From Adipose Tissue Harvested by Water Jet-Assisted Liposuction by Dr. Vial & Dr. Rubin offers an examination of the yield of mescenchymal stem cells (MCSs) with water jet-assisted liposuction. In summary, “We applaud the authors on this well conducted study validating the quality of fat harvested by WAL, including a favorable MSC yield and cell function. WAL harvested fat has been applied successfully for total breast reconstruction, and this study provides data to support the tissue quality for this application.” Read the full commentary here and also the original examined study here.
