Throughout our series of informative blogs, we have focused on a variety of diseases and conditions which have been effectively managed utilizing SVF (Stromal Vascular Fraction) derived from the patient’s own adipose tissue. This multipotent “cellular soup” has been used for almost 50 years throughout the world, initially in research…

Fat-Derived Stem Cells bring Regeneration to Degenerative Joint Disease Sufferers

By | General Orthopedics Library, Knee Surgery Library, Multiple Sclerosis Library, News and Events, Rheumatoid Arthritis Library, Stem Cell Research Studies, Uncategorized | No Comments

Degenerative Joint Disease Commonly called “degenerative joint disease,” (DJD), osteoarthrosis or osteoarthritis (OA) is the commonest form of arthritis. It is ubiquitous and causes the afflicted joints to deteriorate or “degenerate” progressively, losing articular cartilage, eroding into bone, often accompanied by ligament laxity. The disease affects approximately 27 million Americans…

Orthopedics: bone substitutes and beyond.

By | General Orthopedics Library | No Comments

Orthopedics. 2010 Sep 7; 33(9) : 661. doi: 10.3928/01477447-20100722-31. Allograft alternatives: bone substitutes and beyond. Goodman SB. Abstract Excessive wear debris, deep infection, periprosthetic fracture, and other causes can lead to bone loss associated with total joint replacements. When performing revisions, surgeons are often preoccupied by the failed implant and…

Cartilage regeneration by bone marrow cells-seeded scaffolds.

By | General Orthopedics Library | No Comments

Cartilage regeneration by bone marrow cells-seeded scaffolds. Wegener B, Schrimpf FM, Bergschmidt P, Pietschmann MF, Utzschneider S, Milz S, Jansson V, Müller PE. Abstract Different approaches exist for the treatment of small articular cartilage defects. Several studies show comparable results for autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and microfracture. Unfortunately, the fibrocartilage…
