Localized BMP‐4 release improves the enthesis of engineered bone‐to‐bone ligaments

Abstract Successful anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction requires a functional enthesis, the interface between a bone and ligament or tendon. The enthesis normally exhibits a gradient of tissue phenotypes to smooth the transition from the compliant ligament to stiff bone and decrease stress concentrations between the 2 tissues. However, this structure does not fully regenerate …

Tenogenically Induced Allogeneic Peripheral Blood Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Allogeneic Platelet-Rich Plasma: 2-Year Follow-up after Tendon or Ligament Treatment in Horses.

Abstract Poor healing of tendon and ligament lesions often results in early retirement of sport horses. Therefore, regenerative therapies are being explored as potentially promising treatment for these injuries. In this study, an intralesional injection was performed with allogeneic tenogenically induced mesenchymal stem cells and platelet-rich plasma 5-6 days after diagnosis of suspensory ligament (SL) (n = 68) …
