Autologous bone grafts provide the golden standard for closure of oronasal fistulas in the cleft palate. Augmentation may be performed also by homografts and various xenogenic or alloplastic materials to prevent morbidity at the donor site but they may cause many problems (transmission of infections, immune response etc.). All the mentioned approaches also often reveal recurrences of the fistulas and prolong suffering of the cleft patients. Combination of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and so… CONTINUE READING
