[Container method in hair transplant megasessions].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

Presently, it is imperative to obtain a maximum survival rate of follicular units during large-scale transplantation, as the result of hair transplantation depends not only on the quantity of implanted grafts but on the number of survival rate of follicular units in-vitro in continuous moisture during the extended process of hair transplantation. To provide this, prepared grafts are kept in a cold saline solution. The only technological stage of hair transplantation during which grafts exist without a preserving solution is the immediate process of implantation. At this time, grafts placed on the surgeon's gloves are subjected to the harmful drying influences. For exclusion of grafts dehydratation during implantation, minimization crashing injury and shortening of the operation time we have recommended simple adaptation of a so-called Container Method. The goal of this work was the introduction of Container Method and estimation of it's effectiveness in large hair transplantation sessions. Container Method allows reducing grafts dehydratation, iatrogenic injury and warming during implantation. According to clinical observations using above mentioned method gives reduction of operation time by 41%. That fact that containers are very simple adaptations and don't require staff's special training gives a good opportunity to use them widely in the future in hair transplant megassesions.
