Stem Cells Are an Effective Adjunct Therapy for Rotator Cuff Tears

Study finds MSCs accelerate healing, improve tendon integrity

  Although arthroscopic rotator cuff repair has become a fairly common surgical procedure, retears can occur. Researchers from Henri Mondor Hospital, Paris University, have found that the use of bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) during arthroscopy enhances tendon healing and decreases the likelihood of retears.
