14 Jul What is Stromal Vascular Fraction?
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is a component of the extract obtained from liposuction of excess adipose or fat tissue. The SVF contains a large population of specific stem cells, also known as called adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs. These stem cells are similar to bone marrow stem cells, including their capacity for multi lineage differentiation.
SVF cells contain multiple cell types, including –
- adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs)
- mesenchymal and endothelial progenitor cells
- leukocyte subtypes
- lymphatic cells
- vascular smooth muscle cells
The SVF cells are processed such that they contain a consistent composition of heterogeneous cells. When injected into the body, the adipose-derived SVF cells can –
- differentiate into different tissue types
- support neovascularization
- replace cells
- repair injured issue
ADSCs and SVF are highly beneficial since they are –
- readily available in great supply
- they can be easily extracted from the adipose tissue
- free from immune rejection, and have almost no risk of transferring viruses or other communicable diseases, since they have been extracted from the patient’s own body
- the treatment doesn’t require hospitalization, lengthy recovery and rehabilitation periods or complicated, potentially risky surgery
- no risk of dependence on drugs
If you are suffering from a progressive condition that has no known cure, talk to a doctor at a trusted stem cell therapy clinic and find out if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy. Also talk to your doctor about expected outcomes and how long the effects are expected to last.
