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.
