Transphyseal anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using mesenchymal stem cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Conventional techniques for reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in skeletally immature patients risk potential iatrogenic growth disturbance because of drilling across the physis. Animal models have demonstrated mixed results regarding growth disturbances from soft tissue grafts across the physis. HYPOTHESIS Mesenchymal stem cells… (More)
