Mesenchymal stem cell sheet encapsulated cartilage debris provides great potential for cartilage defects repair in osteoarthritis
Medical Hypotheses, 06/15/2012
Qi Y et al. – The operation of mesenchymal stem cells sheet encapsulated cartilage debris for cartilage repair is simple and practical. Moreover, the cell sheet/cartilage debris constructs can be easily shaped based on the size and shape of cartilage defects. The new method might have great potential in treating cartilage defects clinically, especially for osteoarthritis patients.
