The video shows another example of the merging of orthobiologics and orthopedic surgery. Here I repair a troubling lateral meniscal tear with circumferential sutures and then augment the repair with platelet rich plasma injected at the menisco-capsular junction.
Another study showing bone marrow concentrate equal to or better than a surgical procedure …this time for aneurysmal bone cyst….
Here is a recent article showing another application of bone marrow concentrate in orthopedics…this time for treating aneurysmal bone cysts. Percutaneous injection of BMC and DBM and PRF was equivalent to the the more invasive standard of care of curettage and bone grafting. 80% healed after a single percutaneous injection versus 74% healed after a more invasive surgical curettage and bone grafting.
