Mesenchymal Stem Cell for Prevention and Management of Intervertebral Disc Degeneration

Abstract

Intervertebral disc degeneration (IVD) is a frequent pathological condition. Conservative management often fails, and patients with IVD degeneration may require surgical intervention. Several treatment strategies have been proposed, although only surgical discectomy and arthrodesis have been proved to be predictably effective. The aim of biological… (More)
