Abstract

Adult bone marrow-derived stem cells may aid the healing of chronic lower extremity wounds by transplanting a population of progenitor cells locally into the wound. We present results from three cases in which bone marrow aspirate containing marrow-derived cells was applied/injected locally into complex lower extremity chronic wounds of differing aetiologies. Our case series suggest that bone marrow aspirate, applied topically and injected into the wound periphery, may be a useful and potentially safe adjunct to wound simplification and ultimate closure.
