Percutaneous injection of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells for ankle non-unions decreases complications in patients with diabetes

Abstract

Purpose : Clinical studies in diabetic patients have demonstrated that there is a high incidence of complications in distal tibia and ankle fracture treatments. One strategy to mitigate issues with wound healing and infection in diabetic patients is to use a percutaneous technique in which autologous, bone marrow-derived, concentrated cells are injected at the site of non-unions
