Tendons and ligaments are related connective tissues that join muscle to bone and bone to bone, respectively. Tendon and ligament injuries are widely distributed clinical problems in society and while healing of such disorders can occur, the original biological properties of the tissue do not return to normal. In this review, recent work on tendon and ligament development and the use of growth factors for successful cellular therapy of tendon and ligament disorders are discussed. In addition… CONTINUE READING
