[Articular cartilage repair with cell transplantation].Clin Calcium. 2004 Jul; 14(7):96-101.CC
Articular cartilage has a limited capacity for repair. Repair of articular cartilage has been an important theme for orthopaedic surgeons. With the progress of tissue engineering in the treatment of articular cartilage injury, we can obtain good results, to some extent, by cell transplantations. This review summarized the present status of the treatment of articular cartilage injuries by cell transplantations.
