Clinical use of stem cells in orthopaedics part 21

  Several controlled studies have been published recently on the application bone marrow aspirate concentrations to treat osteonecrosis of the femoral head, most of which reported a beneficial effect  of the implantation of bone marrow aspirate concentrations or culture-expanded mesenchymal … Continue reading

Clinical use of stem cells in orthopaedics part 20

  A method that induces bone regeneration with minimal surgical intervention is needed  for those young patients. Hernigou et al. first hit on the idea of cell therapy for osteonecrosis of the femoral head. They added bone marrow aspirate concentrate … Continue reading

Clinical use of stem cells in orthopaedics part 18

  In core decompression, part of necrotic bone is removed to decompress the intramedullary pressure and thereby relieve pain. Because of the relative insufficiency of osteoprogenitor cells in the proximal femur of the osteonecrotic hip, the bone defect thus created … Continue reading

Clinical use of stem cells in orthopaedics part 15

  Recently, Dufrane et al. reported use of scaffold-free three-dimensional grafts from autologous adipose stem cells for reconstruction of large-bone defects. Human adipose stem cells were obtained from subcutaneous adipose tissue of six patients, expanded up to passage 4, incubated … Continue reading
