Allogenic perinatal tissue for musculoskeletal regenerative medicine applications: a systematic review protocol
Although autologous sources are promising, there is a wide range of limitations with the treatment, including the lack of randomized controlled studies for orthopaedic conditions, donor site morbidity, and highly variable outcomes for patients. Allogenic sources bypass some of these shortcomings and are a promising source for orthopaedic regenerative medicine applications.
Repeated leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma injections during and after double-row suture-bridge arthroscopic rotator cuff repair may reduce the retear rate and improve Goutallier grade and clinical outcomes, according to study results.
