Morbidity of graft harvesting versus bone marrow aspiration in cell regenerative therapy

Abstract

Using bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with aspiration from the iliac crest is commonly used in reconstructive orthopaedic surgery. Because bone marrow aspiration is a percutaneous technique, the morbidity as compared with the classical bone graft should be decreased. Therefore in a retrospective review of 523 consecutive cases of bone marrow… (More)
