Organized by


Following the success of the first three international conferences on regenerative surgery, we are pleased to announce the Fourth International Conference on Regenerative Surgery to be held in Rome December 13-15, 2012.  While the first three conferences attempted to include many types of regenerative surgery, this fourth conference will focus on regenerative surgery in the field of plastic surgery.
 
In the four years since the first regenerative surgery meeting, the world has seen a rapidly growing interest in its potential, especially in the plastic surgery community. Therefore, we have elected to focus this year’s meeting on regenerative procedures performed by plastic surgeons. 
 
Fat grafting has been performed for over a century, but we are still trying to understand how transplanted fat survives and how it influences the tissues into which it is placed. The isolation of stromal vascular fractions from adipose tissue poses many new questions about how it should be used and how important it potentially is on its own or in combination with fat.

Introduction

The origin of the international term “Regenerative Surgery” may be dated back to 2 November 2004, when the American federal government approved the resolution number 71 – a two billion dollars fund, to be delivered in ten years, in favour of the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine.

Ever since, for about three years, the meaning of the term Regenerative Medicine was largely debated.

Today, everyone agrees on considering Regenerative Medicine and Surgery to be an interdisciplinary field of researches and clinic applications mainly focused on trying to repair, replace and/or regenerate cells, tissues and/or organs in order to restore functions that were lost for a number of reasons - congenital defects, disease, damage and age among others.
