To investigate the effectiveness of autologous culture‐expanded bone marrow mesenchymal cell transplantation for repairing articular cartilage defects, we transplanted autologous culture‐expanded bone marrow mesenchymal cells into nine full‐thickness articular cartilage defects of the patello‐femoral joints (including two kissing lesions) in the knees of three patients, a 31 year‐old female, a 44 year‐old male and a 45 year‐old male. Three weeks before transplantation, bone marrow blood was… Expand
