Abstract

Background: Tissue ischemia and necrosis following surgery after radiotherapy on the skin and subcutaneous tissue are well known to all reconstructive surgeons. Nevertheless, there has been no report so far on local effects of adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) on random flap survival elevated in an irradiated rat dorsum. In this experimental study, we aimed to identify the effect of adipose tissue-derived stem cell injection on random flap survival in irradiated tissues.
