What is foot filler procedure?

What is an allograft?
An allograft is used to describe an organ or tissue donated from one individual to another. In the case of Leneva®, the allograft is derived from donated human adipose (human fat).
Every year in the United States, doctors use more than a million allografts to help…
- Athletes who need knee reconstruction
- People suffering from back pain
- Cancer patients who need tumor surgery
- People suffering from acute and chronic wounds
These are just a few examples. Surgeons have used allografts successfully—in all kinds of procedures—for decades.
What is Leneva and how can it help me?
Leneva is an off-the-shelf injectible human adipose tissue that is designed to support your body’s own tissue regeneration process. Leneva undergoes strict processing designed to maintain the structural integrity of the tissue without sacrificing quality and sterility. This process allows for retention of key matrix proteins such as Collagen IV and Collagen VI as well as adipogenic and angiogenic factors leptin, adiponectin, FGF-2 and VEGF, while successfully removing residual lipid, cellular fragments, and DNA content.*
Leneva may be used for the replacement of damaged or inadequate integumental adipose tissue matrix, or for the reinforcement or supplemental support in underlying adipose tissue matrix as the result of damage or naturally occurring defects.
