The aim of the current study was to examine the liposuction-induced metabolic changes with regard to release of major adipokines and insulin sensitivity in overweight male patients. Seventeen overweight male patients aged 37.15 ± 9.60 years (6 with diabetes type 2, 11 without comorbidities) and 10 age-matched healthy lean controls were enrolled in the study. Using Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance System, ultrasound assisted liposuction was applied onto the deep layers of abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue...

MOTIVATION: Protein database search is one of the fundamental problems in bioinformatics. For decades, it has been explored and solved using different exact and heuristic approaches. However, exponential growth of data in recent years has brought significant challenges in improving already existing algorithms. BLAST has been the most successful tool for protein database search, but is also becoming a bottleneck in many applications. Due to that, many different approaches have been developed to complement or replace it...

The SIFT (sorting intolerant from tolerant) algorithm helps bridge the gap between mutations and phenotypic variations by predicting whether an amino acid substitution is deleterious. SIFT has been used in disease, mutation and genetic studies, and a protocol for its use has been previously published with Nature Protocols. This updated protocol describes SIFT 4G (SIFT for genomes), which is a faster version of SIFT that enables practical computations on reference genomes. Users can get predictions for single-nucleotide variants from their organism of interest using the SIFT 4G annotator with SIFT 4G's precomputed databases...

BACKGROUND: Although clinical evidence of successful autologous fat transfer (AFT) using third-generation ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is readily available, no study has quantified adipocyte viability using standardized methods. OBJECTIVES: The authors assess acute adipocyte viability following fat aspiration as a first step in determining the overall efficacy of using third-generation UAL for AFT. METHODS: Lipoaspirate samples were collected from patients who underwent elective liposuction procedures at multiple surgery centers...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Michael W Nagy, Paul F Vanek
BACKGROUND: No scientific comparative study has demonstrated any statistically significant clinical improvement attributable to a new lipoplasty technology relative to traditional suction-assisted lipoplasty. This prospective study used a contralateral study design to evaluate postoperative differences between vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance (VASER)-assisted lipoplasty and suction-assisted lipoplasty. METHODS: Twenty female patients between the ages of 20 and 48 years received contralateral treatment with suction-assisted lipoplasty and VASER-assisted lipoplasty in one or more anatomical regions for a total of 33 regions...

BACKGROUND: The introduction of VASER (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) technology has enabled the application of lipoplasty techniques to the superficial fat layers. Differential lipoplasty has been used to detail abdominal musculature by "abdominal etching," but was applicable only to limited areas in male patients with low body fat. OBJECTIVE: The authors report on the use of VASER-assisted high-definition liposculpture to not only improve body contour but also to highlight the 3-dimensional muscular anatomy in a wide variety of patients...

BACKGROUND: Although lipoplasty is the most frequently performed aesthetic surgical procedure, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) has not been widely adopted because of its increased potential for complications, complex and bulky instrumentation, additional cost, and steep learning curve. OBJECTIVE: We report on the use of the VASER ultrasound device in lipoplasty procedures and compare the clinical outcomes obtained by means of VASER-assisted lipoplasty with those of other UAL devices...

BACKGROUND: Current methods of treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis and/or bromidrosis are palliative (use of topical aluminum chloride or injections of botulinum toxin type A) or surgically based for more permanence (excisional surgery, endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy, liposuction/curettage). The surgical approaches have mixed effectiveness and incur the risk of significant side effects and complications. METHODS: Thirteen patients (3 males, 10 females) with significant axillary hyperhidrosis and/or bromidrosis were recruited, treated with the VASER ultrasound, and followed for 6 months...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Onelio Garcia, Nirmal Nathan
BACKGROUND: Lipoplasty remains the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States. In spite of its well documented clinical advantages, ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) accounts for less than 20% of all lipoplasty procedures currently performed. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to determine the blood content of third-generation internal UAL aspirate and compare it to traditional lipoplasty aspirate. METHODS: The lipoplasty aspirate of 27 consecutive patients who underwent traditional suction-assisted lipoplasty (SAL) of their back and posterior flanks was compared to the aspirate of 30 consecutive patients who underwent third-generation internal UAL of their backs and posterior flanks using the VASER Internal Ultrasound Device (Sound Surgical Technologies; Louisville, CO)...

VASER is a fat pretreatment device based on the emission of pulsed or continuous ultrasound energy to emulsify fat before its aspiration by means of suction-assisted lipoplasty or power-assisted lipoplasty. If compared with previous generation UAL machines, it carries important technologic advances that focus on the safety and efficiency of the process. VASER is the result of improvements in surgical instrumentation and technique, proper use of wetting solutions, and knowledge about the best use of ultrasound for fat fragmentation...
