Allograft Stem Cells for Hand Arthritis

Stem Cells for Thumb Arthritis

The carpometacarpal (CMC) joints are five joints in the wrist that articulate the distal row of carpal bones (the ones that connect the hand to the forearm) and the proximal bases of the five metacarpal bones (the bones leading up to just before the fingers). Some of the most common injuries occur to the first CMC joint, or the one associated with the thumb. Also known as the trapeziometacarpal (TMC) joint, it plays an irreplaceable role in the normal functioning of the thumb. Osteoarthritis of the thumb can occur a number of ways. While the term “texting thumb” is often used since so many patients suffer from the condition due to frequent texting, it can occur a number of other ways. Softball injuries can result in thumb arthritis. Being active on a computer, playing frequent video games, or engaging in any number of other activities that put a strain on the thumb can also result in thumb arthritis.

Stem Cells Treating Orthopedic Diseases

Over the past 20 years, there has been a great deal of research and application of allograft stem cells in the treatment of orthopedic diseases. The regenerative properties of mesenchymal allograft stem cells, found in umbilical cord allograft stem cells, have been utilized in tissue engineering techniques in orthopedic surgery. Allograft stem cells may be particularly effective when managing special and compulsive injuries within the musculoskeletal system. During the course of much research into the efficacy of allograft stem cells in treating orthopedic conditions, the Medline and PubMed library databases were studied and referenced. In multiple documented research and clinical trials, multiple sources of allograft stem cells had been studied for orthopedics clinical care practice. The results found that allograft stem cell therapy has successfully been used for major orthopedic procedures such as bone-joint injuries (fractures, bone defects, nonunion and spinal injuries), ligament-tendon injuries, osteoarthritis-cartilage defects, osteogenesis imperfecta, and femoral head osteonecrosis. When combined with bone tissue engineering utilizing the scaffolds,...
