Advances In Wound Healing and Surgical Scar Reduction

(press release from American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery)

ORLANDO, Fla., April 21 -- Two new products, that hold promise in surgical scar prevention and wound closure will be discussed, debated and evaluated by some of the world's leading plastic surgeons at this year's Hot Topics seminar at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), April 21-25 in Orlando, FL.

Juvista, currently in phase II clinical trials in the UK, is an injectable that is placed in wounds at the time of closure in an effort to decrease scarring. The pharmaceutical product consists of TGF BETA-3 (Transforming Growth Factor Beta 3), a naturally occurring protein that is present in high levels in the embryo -- because of its involvement in skin development -- and in low levels in adults. The trials to date show promise, as the application of the product reportedly produces marked improvements in scar structure and color and in some cases the absence of scaring altogether.

Insorb, is a subcuticular skin stapler designed to combine the cosmetic result of absorbable sutures with the rapid closure times associated with metal skin staplers, while eliminating the need for metal staple removal post- operatively. It is comprised of a co-polymer of polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid, which is absorbed over a period of a few months. The product could eliminate the need for metal staple removal post-operatively in the aesthetic patient.

"Presentations at the Hot Topics seminar focus on the most promising innovations" said Jeffrey Lang, MD, president of the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF), co-sponsor of Hot Topics with the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation (PSEF). "Certainly these two products will be widely discussed and debated on issues of safety and efficacy along with many other techniques and devices that have been recently developed, recently launched or are pending FDA approval." he added.

"New innovations always come up against a legitimate concern for patient safety and are put to rigorous testing said V.Leroy Young, MD, Chair of the Emerging Trends Task Force co-sponsored by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) and the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation (PSEF).

If products like Juvista and Insorb live up to their potential, they could be important tools in the aesthetic surgeon's armamentarium eliminating scarring and painful staple removal, two of patients' biggest concerns."

Neither the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) nor the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) advocates or endorses the procedures or technologies presented at the Hot Topics seminar. This seminar is strictly for the purposes of research and education in cosmetic plastic surgery. The reporting, advertising or clinical use of these procedures and technologies should be conducted cautiously, responsibly and with full disclosure of their unproven nature.

The 2300-member American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is the only plastic surgery organization devoted entirely to the advancement of cosmetic surgery. ASAPS is recognized throughout the world as the authoritative source for cosmetic surgery education. U.S. members are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Canadian members are certified in plastic surgery by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.Toll-free referral line: 888.ASAPS.11 (272.7711). Web site: www.surgery.org
