Abstract

In this chapter, we aim to describe the current literature published on the uses of BMAC in the management of foot and ankle disorders. Animal and human studies suggest promising results on the usage of BMAC in augmenting arthrodesis and bone healing. Little evidence is published demonstrating the potential benefits of BMAC used in conjunction with foot and ankle surgery.
