PLASTIC SURGEONS have long used autologous biological materials in their practices—from skin and bone grafts to correct congenital defects or damage from trauma, to using a patient's own abdominal tissue for breast reconstruction. But discoveries of new uses for and benefits of autologous material, coupled with refinements in surgical techniques, have made this one of the fastest growing areas of interest in plastic surgery, and in medicine as a whole. "With autologous tissue and stem cell research, regenerative medicine is one of the most exciting areas of medicine," says Malcolm Roth, MD, chief of plastic surgery at Albany Medical Center in New York and a former president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. "Plastic surgeons are right at the forefront. It's a very exciting time to be in plastic surgery." Patient, Clinical evidence continues to feed the excitement surrounding the use of autologous materials in plastic surgery.
