After Activegel injection to patients for 12 months the following conclusion can be made:
With the correct injection of the gel, taking into account the location, quantity, complience with of aseptic and antiseptic rules, there are no complications related to the quality of the Activegel (Aqualift). Five complications out of 132 procedures were associated with the infection of the gel with flora that penetrted into it from the outside by traumatic, hematogenous or lymphogenous pathways.
Possibilities of using a new generation hydrophilic gel “Activegel” (“Aqualift”) in maxillofacial surgery.
The purpose of this study is to study the effect of the hydrophilic polyamide gel Activegel (Aqualift) implanted in the soft tissues of the maxillofacial region on general and local nonspecific resistance of the patient’s body. We observed 14 patients. On the basis of a clinical and laboratory examination of patients who were treated with hydrophilic polyamide gel “Aqualift” for contour correcion of the face, we found that this drug does not change the general and local nonspecific resistance of the patient’s body after its injection into soft tissues.
