Severe injuries of the face and limbs remain a major challenge in today's reconstructive surgery. Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) has emerged as a promising approach to restore these defects. Yet, there are major obstacles preventing VCA from broad clinical application. Two key restrictions are (1) the graft's limited possible ischemia time, keeping the potential donor radius extremely small, and (2) the graft's immunogenicity, making extensive lifelong monitoring and immunosuppressive treatment mandatory...

BACKGROUND Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is one of the most commonly prescribed drugs to prevent organ transplant rejection in combination with calcineurin inhibitors and steroids. It has a different toxicity profile than tacrolimus and cyclosporine.  Gastrointestinal tract disturbances are the most common adverse effects. The use of MMF in pregnant women, however, holds great risk of miscarriage and fetal development defects such as external ear malformation, ocular anomalies, cleft lip and palate, and abnormality of distal limbs, heart, esophagus, and kidneys...

BACKGROUND: We have previously demonstrated that acidic preconditioning of human endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFC) increased proliferation, migration, and tubulogenesis in vitro, and increased their regenerative potential in a murine model of hind limb ischemia without baseline disease. We now analyze whether this strategy is also effective under adverse conditions for vasculogenesis, such as the presence of ischemia-related toxic molecules or diabetes, one of the main target diseases for cell therapy due to their well-known healing impairments...

INTRODUCTION: Biliary atresia is a progressive inflammatory disease of the bile duct that eventually results in biliary cirrhosis. It is a rare neonatal disease that mandates treatment within the first 2 years of life in order for the infant to survive. Patients usually undergo palliative Kasai portoenterostomy. Even when Kasai portoenterostomy has been performed in a timely manner, progression is still inevitable. In fact, the majority of patients require curative liver transplantation at a later stage before reaching adulthood...

BACKGROUND: Ewing's sarcoma is a primary malignant tumor of bone occurring mostly in childhood. Few effective reconstruction techniques are available after wide resection of Ewing's sarcoma at the distal end of the tibia. Reconstruction after wide resection is especially difficult in children, as it is necessary to consider the growth and activity of the lower limbs. CASE PRESENTATION: A 12-year-old Japanese boy had presented with right lower leg pain at age 8 years...

The superficial digital flexor tendon (SDFT) is a structure frequently affected by injuries in high-performance athletic horses, and there are limited therapeutic options. Regenerative medicine has evolved significantly in treating different illnesses. However, understanding the cellular behaviour during mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) transplantation in healthy tissues is not fully known yet. To address the inflammatory response induced by allogeneic MSC transplantation, this study evaluated the local inflammatory response after the application of allogeneic adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (AT-MSCs) in the equine tendon compared to an autologous transplant and the control group...

Angiitis-induced critical limb ischemia (AICLI) patients constitute a remarkable proportion of no-option critical limb ischemia (CLI) patients. Stem cell therapy has become an innovative and promising option for no-option CLI patients. As one of these promising stem cell therapies, purified CD34+ cell transplantation (PuCeT) has shown favorable short-term results. However, the long-term efficacy of PuCeT has yet to be reported. This study evaluates the long-term efficacy of PuCeT in AICLI patients. Twenty-seven AICLI patients were enrolled from May 2009 to December 2011...

BACKROUND: Employing growth factor-induced partial reprogramming in vitro, peripheral human blood monocytes can acquire a state of plasticity along with expression of various markers of pluripotency. These so-called programmable cells of monocytic origin (PCMO) hold great promise in regenerative therapies. The aim of this translational study was to explore and exploit the functional properties of PCMO for allogeneic cell transplantation therapy in critical limb ischemia (CLI). METHODS: Using our previously described differentiation protocol, murine and human monocytes were differentiated into PCMO...

INTRODUCTION: Brachial artery aneurysms are relatively uncommon and generally due to infectious, post-traumatic or iatrogenic etiology. They seem to affect 4.5% of arteriovenous fistula. The usual manifestation is an accidental finding of a pulsatile, painless, and asymptomatic mass. Complications include sac thrombosis, thromboembolic ischaemic events, and disruption with profuse bleeding. METHODS: The aim of this study is to present a case of true brachial artery aneurysm in end-stage renal disease patient after arteriovenous fistula creation...

Cold ischemia times ranging from <6 h to as long as 24 h are generally quoted as the limits for attempting the replantation of amputated extremities. In this study, we aimed to assess the effect of hyperbaric carbon monoxide (CO) and oxygen (O2 ) on rat limb preservation. Donor rat limbs were preserved in a chamber filled with hyperbaric CO and O2 for 3 days (CO + O2 3 days) or 7 days (CO + O2 7 days). Positive and negative control groups were created by using non-preserved limbs (NP) and limbs wrapped in saline-moistened gauze for 3 days (SMG 3 days), respectively...

INTRODUCTION: Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is caused by a pathologic and destructive response of the organism as a result of the interaction between donor immunocompetent T lymphocytes and the recipient tisular antigens. It's considered the most serious complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, most frequently described after bone marrow transplantation (BMT). The skin is usually the first and most commonly affected organ, in both acute and chronic, with a variable clinical spectrum of presentation...

Atopic keratoconjunctivitis (AKC) is the most severe type of allergic conjunctivitis and may eventually lead to blindness. Although AKC is reported to be more prevalent in adults, we report a child with AKC whose clinical characteristics were not inconsistent with those typically seen in adult patients with AKC, and who was refractory to traditional topical anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant therapies. An 11-year-old boy presented with a 3-month history of ocular redness and itching and decreased vision for a week in both eyes...

Biliary complications are a common cause of morbidity after liver transplantation, with biliary stone formation being a known occurrence generally upstream of a stricture. A 12-year-old boy, who underwent an orthotopic liver transplantation at 11 months of age for biliary atresia, presented acutely with fever and abdominal pain. Cross-sectional imaging revealed Roux-en-Y limb dilatation and thickening. He was explored and was found to have an ischemic Roux limb secondary to an obstructing enterolith. A segmental bowel resection and revision of his hepaticojejunostomy was performed...

Long Xin, Chun Zhang, Wei-Xing Xu, Fu-Hua Zhong, Shun-Wu Fan, Zhen-Bin Wang
Chondral injuries are short of self-healing ability and need to surgical repair after articular cartilage injury. Conventional treatment includes debridement and drainage under arthroscope, micro-fracture, osteochondral autograft transplantation (OATS), mosaiplasty and osteochondral allografts (OCA), autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). Debridement and drainage could remove pain factor, and has advantages of simple operation, wide clinical application and early clinical effect. Micro-fracture and osteochondral autograft transplantation is suitable for small area of cartilage repair, while the further effect showed that fibrous cartilage permeated by drill could decrease postoperative clinical effect...
