Damage of cartilage due to traumatic or pathological conditions results in disability and severe pain. Regenerative medicine, using tissue engineering-based constructs to enhance cartilage repair by mobilizing chondrogenic cells, is a promising approach for restoration of structure and function. Fresh fibrin (FG) and platelet-rich fibrin (PR-FG) glues produced by the CryoSeal(®) FS System, in combination with human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-hMSCs), were evaluated in this… CONTINUE READING
