Stem cell cartilage repair using teflon as a matrix



In addition to mesenchymal stem cells, effective cartilage repair requires growth factors and matrix scaffolding.
Interestingly, both Dacron and Teflon have been used to repair cartilage defects in rabbits. Early studies showed promise. There were pitfalls in using this as a matrix for stem cell repair of cartilage. Unfortunately, this material appears to be too rigid to be applicable to humans. It’s still pretty good for frying eggs.
