Abstract

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) have multipotent plasticity. They demonstrate the ability to differentiate into various cell types. These include bone, tendon, cartilage, muscles and nerve [1-6]. Subsequently, they can have a role in the coming era of medicine as they have the potential to contribute to the regeneration and reconstruction of different tissues, especially in musculoskeletal medicine. As yet, Bone marrow is regarded as the most attractive source of MSCs [7, 8] and for the last few years, numerous interventionists have employed unprocessed Bone Marrow Aspirate (BMA), to incite healing.
