The application of regenerative medicine for musculoskeletal disorders has become widespread, despite the relative lack of critical evidence supporting its efficacy. To date, the literature supporting stem cell-based therapies comprises mostly case reports or case series with small number … Continue reading
Eight patients with chronic patellar tendinopathy were treated with bone marrow aspirate concentrate. At 5-year follow-up, statistically significant improvement was seen for most clinical scores. Seven of eight patients thought that the results of the procedure were excellent although control … Continue reading
