Case Study
The article presents a series of clinical case reports demonstrating regeneration of human bones in hip osteonecrosis and human cartilage in knee osteoarthritis. Case reports of all the patients revealed that a combination of percutaneously injected autologous adipose-tissue-derived stem cells, hyaluronic acid, platelet rich plasma and calcium chloride may be able to regenerate bones in human osteonecrosis.
