Auricular Cartilage Regeneration with Adipose-Derived Stem Cells in Rabbits

Figure 1

The experimental protocol and method. (a) Purified adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs; 2 × 107 cells/mL) were injected at the site of the surgically created auricular cartilage defect subcutaneously (SQ) on days 0, 2, and 4. After auricular cartilage defect was created in the rabbit (b), ASCs were injected with a 26-gauze needle at the edge of the excision site (c) and the Spongostan was attached and sutured to the defect area (d).
