Study Description

Lipografting Versus Steroid Injections for Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

This study applies the regenerative properties of autologous fat transfer to treat mild to moderate carpal tunnel syndrome in comparison to the current standard of care, corticosteroid treatment. The investigators hypothesize the fat transfer would prevent scar formation and aid in nerve excursion along the canal (while the neoangiogenic and regenerative growth factors could stimulate nerve regeneration) better than the standard of care treatment.

Fat Injection

Used by plastic surgeons, lipografting injects autologous fat to correct contour deformities. Plastic surgeons have witnessed the regenerative properties of fat transfer, and these clinical manifestations have fostered numerous studies defining fat as a rich source of pluripotent stem cells with the potential for reducing scar formation, bringing neo-angiogenesis, and providing a barrier against scar adhesions. This study applies the regenerative properties of autologous fat transfer to treat mi ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
