Biological approaches to treat orthopaedic injuries seek to improve clinical outcomes by promoting tissue regeneration and healing. These approaches can be used in isolation or as an augment to surgical interventions. They include, but are not limited to, preparations of growth factors, autologous blood products, and cells. Despite considerable research effort, […]

Evidence for the use of cell-based therapy for the treatment of osteonecrosis of the femoral head: A Systematic Review of the literature

Cell-therapy has been promoted among the therapeutic arsenal that can aid in 6 bone formation and remodeling, in early stages of osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). The purpose of this systematic review was to assess the evidence supporting the: (1)clinical efficacy; (2)structural modifying effect; as evaluated radiographically (3) revision rates; and (4)safety of […]

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Harvesting and Processing Technique

Bone marrow obtained by iliac crest aspiration is a common source for harvesting mesenchymal stem cells, other progenitor cells, and associated cytokine/ growth factors. Because the use of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) is currently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, it represents one of the […]
