Description Our results demonstrated that hyaline cartilage formation occurs in iatrogenic distal femoral physeal defects treated with allogenic mesenchymal stem cells. Newly formed cartilage in growth plate area became well integrated with the host physis and functional. The continued growth of the rigth femur from its distal physis was apparent. This study is the first report, to our knowledge, of the use of an allogenic mesenchymal stem cells for repair of experimentally damaged physis in rabbits.
