Fat Pad Restoration
Fat pad restoration is a foot treatment that restores the body’s natural cushioning to the bottom of the foot. We offer this option with Leneva injection.
Leneva is an allograft adipose matrix derived from donated human tissue used for tissue reconstruction. This is a safe and clinically proven solution to help with foot pain without steroid injections or surgery. Leneva is also FDA approved.
Non-surgical treatment for Painful Corns, Calluses and Fat Pad Atrophy due to Fat Pad Loss
We offer a minimally invasive injection to treat foot pain caused by painful corns or calluses, pain in the ball of the foot or heel and even ulcerations due to loss of fat pad. It is very common in older people as we age, the amount of fat pad may be diminished or fat pad shifts due to foot deformity such as hammertoe and bunion deformity or repeated steroid injections for plantar fasciitis. The fat pad diminished down, causing less gap between prominent bone and skin and pain with every step we take.
Leneva is a first-of-its-kind human adipose tissue for tissue reconstruction. As an all-natural extracellular matrix, Leneva is a safe, natural, off-the-shelf solution that has multiple clinical applications including, but not limited to:
- Diabetic Foot Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers
- Tunneling Wounds
- Fat Pad Restoration Procedures
Leneva Allograft Adipose Matrix is made of fat tissue which is intended for the replacement of damaged or inadequate integumental adipose tissue matrix. Leneva Allograft Adipose matrix also be used for the reinforcement or supplemental support in underlying adipose tissue matrix as the result of damage or naturally occurring defects. This process utilized preserves the extracellular matrix of the allograft adipose. The resulting allograft serves as a framework to support the cellular repopulation and vascularization at the surgical site.
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).
What Is Leneva And How Can It Help Me?
Leneva is an off-the-shelf injectable 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.
How Do I Know It’s Safe?
MTF Biologics’ strict donor criteria is designed by medical experts to ensure quality and safety. Available relevant medical records are evaluated by our MTF Biologics Physicians to determine donor suitability. This comprehensive review indicates that the donor suitability criteria is in compliance with FDA and AATB regulations, therefore deeming the tissue eligible for transplantation.
Possible adverse effects of using donated human tissue include, but are not limited to:
- Local or systemic infection
- Dehiscence and/or necrosis due to poor revascularization
- Specific or nonspecific immune response
