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.
