08:30 - 10:30 #9920 - All the things that can go wrong with dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers, specifically hyaluronic acid, is a very safe product in the hand of the experienced doctor. The more common this product gets, the more unexperienced physicians use this product. This leads, together with the usage of hyaluronic acid in regions not suitable for HA, to a growing number of serious complications.

This review of the current literature gives an overview of the worst complications reported in the last years, analizes the mistakes that were being made, gives tips and tricks how to deal with them and how to avoid them at all.

17:18 - 17:26 #12110 - Hyperacute serum - a novel blood derivative that outperforms PRP in supporting cell proliferation and adipogenesis from MSCs.


Fat tissue, due to its high concentration of pluripotent stem cells, has a role in aesthetic medicine and reconstructive surgery. However, poor survival of the transplanted cells still limits the usefulness of this material in regenerative medicine. Several studies indicated that platelet rich plasma (PRP) may improve adipose tissue viability due to its growth factor content. However, pro-inflammatory agents such as fibrin and leukocytes are also present in PRP which are not desired in these indications. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of hyperacute serum, a novel cell- and fibrin-free blood derivative on the adipogenic lineage in vitro.


Metabolic activity and proliferation rate of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) cultivated in media supplemented with three types of serum additives (fetal calf serum (FCS), human PRP or hyperacute serum). Hyperacute serum was isolated from glass-activated platelet rich fibrin within 10 minutes of blood drawing to prevent the propagation of inflammatory cascades.  Cell proliferation was determined using a tetrazolium assay. Adipogenesis was evaluated in standard and pro-adipogenic media  and tested by oil red staining, triglyceride content and expression of specific genes. Adipogenic and adipokine proteins in the sera were measured by multiplex ELISA assays.


Proliferation of MSCs was supported by both FCS and hyperacute serum in a time-dependent manner, but surprisingly, PRP had a much weaker effect (change in proliferation rate after 5 days relative to metabolic activity on day 0 - FCS : 5.4 fold, hyperacute serum : 5.8, serum free 1.9, PRP 3.0 p<0.05). Lipogenesis was only observed in groups with adipogenic differentiation medium, with hyperacute serum showing a significantly stronger effect than PRP. This was confirmed by intensive accumulation of lysochrome dye in lipid droplets, higher triglyceride concentration and elevated expression of specific adipogenic genes. Interestingly it was also observed that in hyperacute serum group the production of COL1 was highly upregulated. Measurement of lipogenic proteins in the sera revealed,  that both PRP and hyperacute serum are abundant in them, PRP also contains anti-adipogenic factors which explains its weaker and less reliable effect.


Hyperacute serum provides more robust support than PRP in MSC proliferation as well as lipogenic differentiation, indicating that it may be a better adjuvant in fat grafting procedures.
