A patient classified as Norwood 6 may not be treated with FUE or FUT. His capital of follicular units is insufficient to cover a surface of the skull which is too great. FUE and FUT act moving the follicular units extracted from the donor area, to the receiving area.

The available amount of follicular unit in the donor area is a finite not extensible nombre. Therefore extracting a large number of follicular units from the donor has often as a consequence to make the donor area completely emptied of all follicular units it contains, leaving this area full of small scars and voids.

FUE and FUT create empty small areas where the grafts have been extracted from the donor area

At every extraction both FUE and FUT leave a shortfall in the donor. A quantity of minuscule shortages is created in the case of FUE when each withdrawal is replaced by a small scar.

An entire withdrawal of a strip of scalp is replaced by a long scar obtained by approaching the two flaps of the collection in the case of the FUT Strip procedure. While with FUE withdrawals the density of the donor decreases as the shortages are distributed over the entire surface, in the case of the FUT is the whole donor area that shrinks as it is deprived of all the strip of scalp that is removed.

If the Norwood classification is too high, and the donor zone is not able to provide it, the patient will be excluded from the possibility of performing a transplant. The trichologist or the dermatologist may, in the case of a high Norwood case, propose a hair transplant technique in the donor area, through a particular hair stem cell transplantation that can multiply the number of them.

HST gives new hope to patients

The technique is called HST (Hair Stemcell Transplantation) or PL FUT (Partial Longitudinal Follicolar Unit Extraction). It is also known as Doctor GHO’s technique or Hair Moltiplication. This technique works with the same principle of cuttings in plants. The surgeon uses needles (the size of 0.6 millimeters) for the removal of the grafts. The size of these mini punches is lower than that of a follicular unit. The punch, penetrates inside the follicular unit and extractes only a portion of it.

Hair stem cells split with HST

Hair stem cells are separated in two groups with the HST technic. This means that the follicular unit is not extracted entirely as in the case of the FUE that uses larger punches. In fact the follicular unit is divided into two portions: one that remains in the donor area and the other that is transported and transplanted in the receiving area. Each of these portions contain sufficient hair stem cells to allow each of them to reconstitute two new follicular units of which the new is the clone of the initial unit from which the sample was taken.

Why Grafts taken with HST survive

If the utilisation of punches of micro-dimensions was sufficient for the multiplication of the follicular units, everyone would do the same. When the mini grafts are extracted, they are so thin that they are without skin tissue. It means that hair stem cells are virtually bare and therefore extremely exposed and delicate. That graft couldn’t live.

It would be taken, but could not be used because it would not survive. The next step is the procedure to which the transplant is subjected. The transplant portion has to be able to survive. To do so, it is dipped into a patented drug compound. It is similar to the substances used to preserve organs used in transplantation. The passage into this composition makes it possible for the graft not to perish. At the same time, it gives it the vitality it needs to transplant into the receiving area and survive the transplant.

With HST the donor zone is regenerated

With the HST, the donation area is regenerated. It is clear from that the follicular units partially transplanted give birth of 2 individual follicular units. The first one stays in the donor area and regenerates herself to the exact configuration ante withdrawal. The restoration of the donor area is then assured.The second portion implanted in the receiving area grows back exactly as a clone of the follicular unit of origin. This one is then multiplied by two, giving rise to the phenomenon that is called Hair moltiplication.

This is the difference from the FUE and FUT techniques that are practiced today everywhere. These techniques are not possible in the most important cases of baldness leaving the patient without treatment option.

There are cases where FUE and FUT are possible, however. But what differentiates them from the HST technique is that they simply move the follicular units from the donor zone to the recipient zone. , After the transplantation a shortfall at the point of extraction appears together with plenty of tiny scars. HST instead does not provocate shortages and each extraction multiplies by two. The donor zone is preserved and the receiving zone is getting filled.

Partial cloning of follicular unit using (PLFUT-HST)

The Hair Science Institute is a facility specializing in hair and scalp disorders and operates under ISO 9001: 2008 guidelines and protocols. The Institute has offices in Europe in Amsterdam, Maastricht, London, Milan, Paris and Cap Dantive. , Development, treatment and training institutions, with PhDs. H. Martino Neumann, Department of Dermatology, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Our hospital was established in 2005 and has performed more than 15,000 hematopoietic stem cell transplants.

Professor Dr Dr Gho, a patented HST technology researcher, is the author of a study (basic and clinical) that revealed that the entire hair follicle does not need to regenerate hair growth. If some of the hair follicle units remain in the donor area, new hair can be regenerated even if some of them are removed. This part of the removed follicle, in turn, produces hair when transplanted into the recipient area. Therefore, it is clear that the hair follicle unit can produce more hair, as described and published in the British Journal of Dermatology.

HST Surgery differences between HST and FUE and FUT

HST’s HairStemcell Transplantation® uses 0.5-0.6 mm needles to extract only a small portion of the tissue. This partial removal of hair tissue contains enough hair stem cells to form new hair follicle units. A more important amount of tissue remains in the donor area after the sample is taken.

Regardless of the product name, the hair follicle unit is completely extracted compared to other flocking techniques such as FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction), Microfue, Saphir FUE, DHI (manual or electric), FUT or Strip Surgery. On the other hand, with HST, the chances of regrowth are much higher (usually 80% or more). This is because other techniques remove too much follicular tissue from the donor area. Therefore, only the graft creates new hair and instead depletes the donor area.

Hair transplant without cars

In the future, after HST treatment, the hair in the donor area can be shortened without visibly losing density, and as a whole, the same hair follicle unit partially collected in the number of hairs on the head. The birth of the hair produced by is hung. Regeneration donor area: Solution if the donor area is insufficient

The donor area, which is regenerated after regrowth of the partially removed hair follicle unit and has no visible residual scar, can only be reused months after surgery. For burn victims, for all those with limited donor areas, this is very important if they want to get their hair restored. The international journal BURNS has published an article dedicated to this reconstruction technique in burn patients.

Short, painless postoperative course

At the time of transplantation, use a needle (0.5 mm) smaller than the needle used to remove the graft to make a hole in the recipient area. Because of this, the graft fits snugly in the hole, and over 95% of the grafts regenerate new hair. Also, there are no scratches on the receiving side. Another advantage of this HST technique is that the grafts can be placed very close to each other, taking into account the very small size of the grafts, which makes the postoperative course much easier and faster. High hair density is achieved.

Anesthesia performed using equipment specially designed and researched to provide maximum comfort to the patient is virtually painless. Considering the minimal wound of about 0.5 mm on the scalp, unlike other techniques that require both bandages and a very long hospital stay, the patient does not feel pain after treatment.

Eyebrow and beard repair

Hair stem cell transplants can also restore eyebrows and beards. On the Hasci Italia website you can find some images of the donor area and the differences between FUE and HST. Scientific papers are regularly published in the most prestigious medical-oriented journals.

In the article “Progress in hair transplantation: transplantation of longitudinal partial follicular units” written by Coen G Gho, HA Martino Neumann PMID: 26370653 DOI: 10.1159 / 000369416 says that the common hair transplant techniques known are FUT and FUE. For the first a strip of skin containing follicular units is removed then cut into grafts and implanted in the récipient area. with the FUE, entire follicular units are extracted one after the other and reimplanted one at a time in the receiving area, the FUE method leaves only tiny scars in comparison to the FUT Strip method, which leaves linear scars visible in the donor area.

However, both methods have the major drawback that the extracted follicular units are fully removed.The.capital of follicular units a patient has is in any case limited and the fact of extracting whole follicular units decreases the hair density : no regrowth will occur in the donor. Since PLFUT (also called HST) transplant extracts partial longitudinal follicle units that are used and behave as complete.
