ABSTRACT
Ultrasonography is widely used in the diagnosis and monitoring of equine tendon injuries. More recently it has been used to perform ultrasound guided intra-lesional administration of growth factor and cell based therapies including autologus bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs). Re-injury rates in horses following tendon injury are high with conventional treatment, however the use of BM-MSCs has resulted in a significant reduction in tendon re-injury in National Hunt racehorses. This article reviews the methods of tendon ultrasound used in the horse and the techniques used for BM-MSC therapy to treat tendon injury.</div> </div> <div class="clear"></div> <div class="labels"> <div class="label-title">ACCESSION #</div> <div class="desc">38030492</div> </div> <p> </p> <div id="second-cta"> <a href="http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&authtype=cookie&db=8gh&db=asx&db=b9h&db=bsh&db=bsx&db=bwh&db=ddu&db=e020mna&db=edb&db=edo&db=edsaac&db=edsaah&db=edsace&db=edsaed&db=edsafa&db=edsaho&db=edsaih&db=edsair&db=edsaks&db=edsalm&db=edsamb&db=edsamh&db=edsaml&db=edsamo&db=edsamw&db=edsarb&db=edsarc&db=edsard&db=edsare&db=edsatl&db=edsatm&db=edsaul&db=edsaup&db=edsavd&db=edsbao&db=edsbas&db=edsbbp&db=edsbbt&db=edsbeb&db=edsbhl&db=edsblc&db=edsbme&db=edsboj&db=edsbps&db=edsbrw&db=edsbzt&db=edscan&db=edscao&db=edscau&db=edscbp&db=edsccr&db=edscdp&db=edscel&db=edscgd&db=edscgf&db=edscha&db=edschs&db=edsclc&db=edsclk&db=edsclt&db=edscnl&db=edscoj&db=edscpi&db=edscra&db=edscrc&db=edscro&db=edscvd&db=edsdar&db=edsdeh&db=edsdeo&db=edsdfl&db=edsdlc&db=edsdmo&db=edsdnt&db=edsdnz&db=edsdom&db=edsdpi&db=edsear&db=edsebr&db=edsecl&db=edseco&db=edseds&db=edseee&db=edsehd&db=edselb&db=edseli&db=edselr&db=edsely&db=edsemm&db=edsemr&db=edseou&db=edserd&db=edseti&db=edseub&db=edseul&db=edseur&db=edsewc&db=edsfis&db=edsfit&db=edsfod&db=edsfrc&db=edsgal&db=edsgbc&db=edsgea&db=edsgec&db=edsggo&db=edsggr&db=edsgij&db=edsgit&db=edsglr&db=edsgml&db=edsgmw&db=edsgnc&db=edsgov&db=edsgrw&db=edsgsb&db=edsgtd&db=edsgtx&db=edsgvr&db=edsgwp&db=edshar&db=edshbo&db=edshla&db=edshrc&db=edshsd&db=edshui&db=edshwr&db=edsiad&db=edsiag&db=edsiap&db=edsibo&db=edsibw&db=edside&db=edsidm&db=edsimf&db=edsimi&db=edsint&db=edsinv&db=edsipa&db=edsipl&db=edsipr&db=edsjoj&db=edsjov&db=edskan&db=edskbr&db=edskdg&db=edsker&db=edskig&db=edsknv&db=edskot&db=edskrm&db=edskrp&db=edskst&db=edslao&db=edslap&db=edslco&db=edslea&db=edsled&db=edsley&db=edslmc&db=edsloc&db=edslrl&db=edslrn&db=edslxp&db=edsmai&db=edsmbr&db=edsmep&db=edsmfo&db=edsmgd&db=edsmgo&db=edsmib&db=edsmid&db=edsmkl&db=edsmmd&db=edsmob&db=edsmoe&db=edsmoj&db=edsmtl&db=edsmwo&db=edsnan&db=edsnas&db=edsnbk&db=edsnbu&db=edsndl&db=edsngv&db=edsnik&db=edsnop&db=edsnor&db=edsnot&db=edsnsm&db=edsnuk&db=edsnum&db=edsnup&db=edsnvl&db=edsnzc&db=edsoai&db=edsocl&db=edsocp&db=edsoec&db=edsohw&db=edsoic&db=edsojs&db=edsonp&db=edsopl&db=edsorb&db=edsorl&db=edsotl&db=edsotz&db=edsovi&db=edsoxf&db=edspdq&db=edspeb&db=edspej&db=edspes&db=edspga&db=edspia&db=edspor&db=edspsn&db=edspso&db=edspsr&db=edspsy&db=edspub&db=edsrem&db=edsrep&db=edsret&db=edsrho&db=edsric&db=edsrom&db=edsrsa&db=edsrts&db=edsrxt&db=edssac&db=edssbi&db=edssbr&db=edsscb&db=edssch&db=edssco&db=edsshm&db=edsshv&db=edsskl&db=edssks&db=edssmd&db=edssol&db=edssta&db=edsstb&db=edsstc&db=edsstg&db=edsstp&db=edssun&db=edssvk&db=edssvl&db=edsswf&db=edsswo&db=edsthw&db=edstor&db=edstox&db=edstoy&db=edstvn&db=edstwa&db=edsucd&db=edsupo&db=edsvbu&db=edsver&db=edsvle&db=edsvlx&db=edsvsi&db=edswao&db=edswbe&db=edswbu&db=edswcl&db=edswcu&db=edswdc&db=edswwo&db=edszac&db=edszad&db=edszae&db=edszan&db=edszap&db=eoah&db=ers&db=f5h&db=kdh&db=kfh&db=neh&db=nlebk&db=nsm&bquery=%28%28SU+%22CELLULAR+therapy%22%29+OR+%28SU+%22HORSES%27+injuries+--+Treatment%22%29%29+AND+%28FT+Y%29&type=0&site=ehost-live&scope=site"><img src="/sites/all/themes/ehc/images/citation-cta.png" /></a> </div> </div> <!-- end #reader-info --> </div> <!-- end #reader-wrap --> <h2>Related Articles</h2><ul><li><a href="/c/articles/47663170/40-uk-companies-will-share-in-8-3m-stem-cell-program">40 UK Companies Will Share in £8.3M Stem Cell Program.</a> Moran, Nuala // BioWorld International;1/20/2010, Vol. 15 Issue 3, p3 <p style="color:#666;font-size:90%;">The article reports on the formation of an 8.3 million British pound national center in Great Britain to specialize in manufacturing cell therapies.
