Abstract

Tendon pathologies represent a group of musculoskeletal conditions commonly viewed in orthopaedic and rheumatology clinics. They are classified into traumatic, degenerative and over-use related types. As yet, the majority of conventional approaches have unpredictable results and regularly fail to produce satisfying clinical recovery. With increasing indication of the successful utilisation of MSCs in different divisions of medicine, there is significant interest in employing expanded stem cells to manage these pathologies. Here, we investigate written reports concerning the employment of MSC for managing tendon pathologies.
