The stem cells technology
Healing the body by means of its own resources has been the dream of medicine since ancient times; nowadays these stem cells allow the replacement of “ill or degraded” cells with new regenerative cells.
The mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells which have the ability to transform into several different lineage-restricted cells such as: fat, muscle, cartilage, bone, nervous cells.
The ability to transform themselves is determined by many scientifically determined growth factors as well as by the local plasticity phenomenon (copying the features of the cells of proximity) which causes in the receptive area a growth of the existing cells, fact which causes local regeneration. The stromal fraction is the plurality of cells which are found in the precipitate after the digestion of fat which contains: 7% – endothelial cells, 9% – smooth muscular cells, 22% – blood cells, 23% – microfagus cells, 38% – CD34 / CD31 / CD45 phenotipically marked cell growth factors , 5% – CFU-F cell stems. It is injected on a previously drawn fat filler which is the lipofilling; it has the ability to create an internal culture environment where the mesenchymal stem cells develop.
A part of the prepared sample is sent to the cell biology laboratory which creates a witness sample to check the evolution of the cell stems.
The mesenchymal stem cells or the forerunner adipose cells are the most proliferating lineage of multipotent stem cells and the healing solution in the case of multiple maladies such as: myocardial infarction, regeneration of varicose ulcers, regeneration of chronic plagues, bone reconstruction, multiple sclerosis, mandibular reconstruction, diabetes, chronic fistula, nerve regeneration; many of these studies are in clinical phase 1 or 2.
Mesenchymal stem cells
Nowadays fat is the most important source of stem cells in the body, exceeding a hundred times the one in the red marrow. The plastic surgeons’ ability to harvest fat easily has propelled us in the first line of actual scientific discoveries.
In our clinic we have developed a revolutionary procedure of isolation of stem cells from fat, presented at the Congress of Regenerative Surgery in Rome 2012, after which many doctors from Argentina, France, Switzerland, Egypt, England etc have started using the RADU PROTOCOL isolation method.
On this occasion, during the monthly private Papal Audience,
Pope Benedictus XVI, Joseph Ratzinger offered his benediction to the members of the International Society of Regenerative Surgery, accepting on behalf of the Catholic Church the surgical regenerative treatments.
On the occasion of the Congress of European Society of Aesthetic Surgery in Instanbul on 20/06/2012, Dr Radu Ionescu presented this paper representing Romania,
in the “Voice of Europe” competition for the best paper in 2012 awarded with ‘ULRICH HINDERER PRIZE’.
The actual recommendations for the stem cells surgery in our clinic are related to the transfer of fat enriched with stem cells for: breast augmentation in contour or following oncological surgery, repair of body deformities caused by lack of substance, gluteal augmentation, calf augmentation as well as FACIAL REGENERATION.
Within the Medlife Private Health Care Network we take important official steps to obtain the approval of the first ADRC Stem Cells Bank in Romania where your cells can be stored and should some maladies appear in your lifetime, for example the myocardial infarction – the malady with the highest mortality rate – to be used in order to regenerate the cardiac muscle.
