Study Design: Longitudinal case-control animal model.Expand abstract
Objective: To investigate effects of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatment on multifidus muscle remodeling after intervertebral disc (IVD) lesion.
Summary of Background Data: Lesion and degeneration of IVDs cause structural remodeling of the multifidus muscle. Proinflammatory cytokines are thought to contribute. MSC treatment restores IVD health after lesion but its effects on...
