Feasibility of local CD133+ cell transplantation to avoid non-unions in biological impaired bone healing

Dienelt Anke , Sass Andrea F , Preininger Bernd , Schmidt-Bleek Katharina , Duda Georg N

The clinical orthopaedic problem of delayed healing or non-union after complex fractures affects 5–10% of all patients, especially within the elderly population. Recently several in vitro studies showed that CD133+ cells bare angiogenic capacities and contribute to a better outcome concerning ischemia induced angiogenesis in vivo. A local administration of these specific cells to the fracture gap appears feasible as a new treatment option for biological ...
