New Scaffold Can Help Soft Tissue Replacement Surgeries in the Future

  • Published on May 6, 2019
  • A team of plastic surgeons and material scientists have made an important advance in treating the common clinical problem of soft tissue loss. They have invented a synthetic soft tissue substitute that is well tolerated and encourages the growth of soft tissue and blood vessels. This new material retains its shape without being too dense, overcoming challenges with current tissue fillers that tend to be either too soft or not porous enough to let cells move in and start regrowing tissue Dr. Justin Sacks explains how this new scaffold can help soft tissue replacement surgeries in the future. #JohnsHopkinsResearch #SoftTissueReplacement
