BACKGROUND Despite the advances in surgical procedures to repair the rotator cuff, there is a high incidence of failure. Biologic approaches, such as growth factor delivery and stem cell and gene therapy, are potential targets for optimization to improve the outcome of rotator cuff therapies and reduce rates of reinjury. This article outlines the current evidence for growth factor and stem cell therapy in tendon healing and the augmentation of rotator cuff repair. METHODS Literature on the… CONTINUE READING
