Orthopedics today: New study demonstrates successful Bone Marrow stem cell-rich collagen paste use in repairing cartilage defects

A recent study provides evidence supporting the use of stem cell-rich collagen paste made of patient’s own bone marrow in repairing talar osteochondral (ankle bone cartilage) defect. The paste creates a hyaline (elastic) cartilage, which is sturdier than the fibrous (tough) cartilage created by the surgery alone. Patients that underwent the paste therapy following surgery … Continue reading Orthopedics today: New study demonstrates successful Bone Marrow stem cell-rich collagen paste use in repairing cartilage defects
