Centers for acquiring, characterizing, and storing bones or bone tissue for future use.
The grafting of bone from a donor site to a recipient site.
The process by which a tissue or aggregate of cells is kept alive outside of the organism from which it was derived (i.e., kept from decay by means of a chemical agent, cooling, or a fluid substitute that mimics the natural state within the organism).
A specialized CONNECTIVE TISSUE that is the main constituent of the SKELETON. The principle cellular component of bone is comprised of OSTEOBLASTS; OSTEOCYTES; and OSTEOCLASTS, while FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and hydroxyapatite crystals form the BONE MATRIX.
The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.

The pathology of bone allograft. (1/16)

We analysed the histological findings in 1146 osteoarthritic femoral heads which would have been considered suitable for bone-bank donation to determine whether pathological lesions, other than osteoarthritis, were present. We found that 91 femoral heads (8%) showed evidence of disease. The most common conditions noted were chondrocalcinosis (63 cases), avascular necrosis (13), osteomas (6) and malignant tumours (one case of low-grade chondrosarcoma and two of well-differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma). There were two with metabolic bone disease (Paget's disease and hyperparathyroid bone disease) and four with inflammatory (rheumatoid-like) arthritis. Our findings indicate that occult pathological conditions are common and it is recommended that histological examination of this regularly used source of bone allograft should be included as part of the screening protocol for bone-bank collection.  (+info)

Histopathology of retrieved allografts of the femoral head. (2/16)

From November 1994 to March 1997, we harvested 137 grafts of the femoral head from 125 patients for donation during total hip arthroplasty according to the guidelines of the American Associations of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the European Association of Musculo-Skeletal transplantation (EAMST). In addition to the standards recommended by these authorities, we performed histopathological examination of a core biopsy of the retrieved bone allograft and of the synovium. Of the 137 allografts, 48 (35.0%) fulfilled all criteria and were free for donation; 31 (22.6%) were not regarded as suitable for transplantation because the serological retests at six months were not yet complete and 58 (42.3%) were discarded because of incomplete data. Of those discarded, five showed abnormal histopathological findings; three were highly suspicious of low-grade B-cell lymphoma, one of monoclonal plasmacytosis and the other of non-specific inflammation of bone marrow. However, according to the standards of the AATB or EAMST they all met the criteria and were eligible for transplantation. Our findings indicate that the incidence of abnormal histopathology in these retrieved allografts was 3.6%. Since it is essential to confirm the quality of donor bones in bone banking, we advise that histopathological screening of donor bone should be performed to exclude abnormal allografts.  (+info)

Changes in allograft bone irradiated at different temperatures. (3/16)

Secondary sterilisation of allograft bone by gamma irradiation is common, but the conditions under which it is performed vary between tissue banks. Some do so at room temperature, others while the bone is frozen. Bone is made brittle by irradiation because of the destruction of collagen alpha chains, probably mediated by free radicals generated from water molecules. Freezing reduces the mobility of water molecules and may therefore decrease the production of free radicals. We found that bone irradiated at -78 degrees C was less brittle and had less collagen damage than when irradiated at room temperature. These findings may have implications for bone-banking.  (+info)

Study of the healing process after transplantation of pasteurized bone grafts in rabbits. (4/16)

Different bone allografts (pasteurized, autoclaved, and frozen) were compared based on their osteoinductive properties. Our primary purpose was to examine the biologic qualities of pasteurized allografts, as pasteurization inactivates most viruses transmitted by transplantation. Frozen, pasteurized, and autoclaved allografts were packed into a standard defect of rabbit ulna. The animals were sacrificed at 2 and 4 weeks after surgery. The parts of bones with experimental defects were explored en bloc, and a roentgenogram was carried out. Ulna bone samples were then embedded in methyl-methacrylate. Roentgenograms showed that after 2 weeks, calluses were well-formed, but irregular in shape in all 3 types of allografts. After 4 weeks, the calluses were regular in shape in all but the autoclaved grafts. After 2 weeks, the healing processes had begun in the frozen and pasteurized grafts, with the reaching approximately the same stage, while in the autoclaved grafts these processes were not seen and the bone particles were surrounded by connective tissue without any changes. After 4 weeks, osteoinductive processes were very strong, with the first signs of complete bone remodeling at the bone edges of the defect in pasteurized and frozen allografts. The osteoinductive values of these 2 types were very high and similar. Autoclaved allografts, on the other hand, had very low osteoinductive values, as they were still at the very beginning of the healing process. Histomorphometric analysis revealed a significant difference in both newly formed osteoid thickness and osteoblast number per microm of bone surface in all experimental groups (P < 0.005). Values of osteoid thickness and osteoblast number were significantly higher in both frozen and pasteurized grafts when compared with the autoclaved ones (P < 0.005). Osteogenic properties of pasteurized bone allografts were preserved, and the allografts have been gradually replaced with newly formed bone. As such, pasteurized bone grafts from a bone bank have approximately the same biologic validity as frozen grafts, while autoclaved grafts impair bone healing.  (+info)

Microwave sterilization of femoral head allograft. (5/16)

The potential shortage of allograft bone has led to the need to investigate other sources of bone for allografts. Some allograft bone donated from primary total hip arthroplasty recipients must be discarded or treated to become usable as a result of bacterial contamination. Femoral head allografts were contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis. A domestic microwave oven was used. The contaminated bone was exposed to microwave irradiation for different time periods. The samples were then cultured to attempt to grow the two bacterial species. The contaminated bone samples failed to grow any organisms after 2 min of exposure to microwave irradiation. This study shows that sterilization of femoral head allografts contaminated with S. aureus and B. subtilis can be achieved with microwave irradiation in a domestic microwave oven. This method of sterilization of bone allografts is cheap, easily used, and an effective way to process contaminated bone.  (+info)

Microbiological culture results for the femoral head. Are they important to the donor? (6/16)

We determined the rate of contamination of donated femoral heads at primary hip arthroplasty within a single region between July 1992 and July 2001. We established the null hypothesis that culture results played no role in predicting early failure of the joint because of infection. The rate of contamination was 9%. A positive culture, at the time of retrieval, was found in 367 of 4045 femoral heads. Coagulase-negative staphylococcus was isolated in 77% of the positive cases. At a minimum follow-up of one year, there was no statistically significant difference in the rate of complications or of revision of age-matched patients whose femoral heads had a positive culture compared with those whose femoral heads were sterile. Our findings confirm that culture of the femoral head plays no part in determining future failure of joint replacement in the donor.  (+info)

Microbial contamination of femoral head allografts. (7/16)

OBJECTIVE: To study the incidence of microbial contamination at the bone bank of the United Christian Hospital. DESIGN. Retrospective study. SETTING: Regional hospital, Hong Kong. PATIENTS: A total of 151 patients (33 men and 118 women) who underwent hip arthroplasty surgery and from whom femoral head allografts were retrieved between January 1994 and March 2000; and 81 patients in whom allografts were implanted. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Bone biopsies were taken from the femoral head and used to detect any microbial contamination that might have occurred during removal and after storage. The rates of infection among recipients and donors were also assessed. RESULTS: Of the 151 allografts, 94 non-contaminated allografts were implanted by the end of the study. Fourteen (9.3%) heads showed positive culture results after retrieval and were discarded. Four (4.3%) of the 94 stored allografts that were implanted tested positive for microbial growth, but the recipients of these allografts did not develop any clinical infection. Three (3.2%) had wound infections after implantation of the stored allografts although the grafts had previously been tested negative for any microbial contamination. CONCLUSION: Our centre has a low allograft contamination rate. The wound infection rate among recipients was also low. The culture of a bone biopsy sample is a reliable method to detect contamination of bone grafts. However, the contamination rate among stored allografts should prompt orthopaedics departments to review allograft handling procedures, so as to minimise the chance of contamination.  (+info)

Microbiological cultures of allografts of the femoral head just before transplantation. (8/16)

Allografts of bone from the femoral head are often used in orthopaedic procedures. Although the donated heads are thoroughly tested microscopically before release by the bone bank, some surgeons take additional cultures in the operating theatre before implantation. There is no consensus about the need to take these cultures. We retrospectively assessed the clinical significance of the implantation of positive-cultured bone allografts. The contamination rate at retrieval of the allografts was 6.4% in our bone bank. Intra-operative cultures were taken from 426 femoral head allografts before implantation; 48 (11.3%) had a positive culture. The most frequently encountered micro-organism was coagulase-negative staphylococcus. Deep infection occurred in two of the 48 patients (4.2%). In only one was it likely that the same micro-organism caused the contamination and the subsequent infection. In our study, the rate of infection in patients receiving positive-cultured allografts at implantation was not higher than the overall rate of infection in allograft surgery suggesting that the positive cultures at implantation probably represent contamination and that the taking of additional cultures is not useful.  (+info)

Background & objectives: The main goal when treating malignancies with radiation is to deprive tumour cells of their reproductive potential. One approach is to induce tumour cell apoptosis. This study was conducted to evaluate the ability of carbon ions ( [12] C) to induce apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in human HTB140 melanoma cells. Methods: In this in vitro study, human melanoma HTB140 cells were irradiated with the 62 MeV/n carbon ( [12] C) ion beam, having two different linear energy transfer (LET) values: 197 and 382 keV/μm. The dose range was 2 to 16 Gy. Cell viability was estimated by the sulforhodamine B assay seven days after irradiation. The cell cycle and apoptosis were evaluated 48 h after irradiation using flow cytometry. At the same time point, protein and gene expression of apoptotic regulators were estimated using the Western blot and q-PCR methods, respectively. Results: Cell viability experiments indicated strong anti-tumour effects of [12] C ions. The analysis of cell cycle ...

Incision: The surgeon starts by making an incision in a specific location. These locations could the neck, abdomen, throat, or back of the spine to get access to the spinal column from the front.. Preparation of the bone graft: A bone graft is used to fuse the two vertebrae. It could be taken from the pelvis region or from the bone bank. If the surgeon decides to use the bone graft from the patients body, he then makes an incision in the pelvic bone and extracts a small part and then stitches the incision.. Fusion: The bone graft is placed between the vertebrae of the spinal cord. At times, the surgeon may also use rods and screws to fuse the vertebrae together. The bone graft heals naturally.. In some severe cases, the surgeons use synthetic substances which fasten the bone growth and fusion of the broken vertebrae.. After the surgery has been successfully conducted, the patient must stay in the hospital for 2-3 days. The patient is likely to feel pain and discomfort which is controlled with ...
How Is Arthrodesis Procedure Performed?. In an ankle fusion operation, the first step is to remove any remaining cartilage and create a level bone surface. The bones are then aligned in the proper position for the fusion.Bone can be taken from another part of the body or from a bone bank and placed in between the two bones being fused to stimulate the fusion. This is called a bone graft. Implants of metal plates, screws, or wires can be used to close the joint and position the bones next to each other. Over time, the body heals the bones to become one. Occasionally, a bone graft is needed to aid healing. ...

I wouldnt worry about it. I would get it done. I have had it done twice now, the first time for c4/5, c5/6 and did have autograft (hip from bone) which is very painfufl, and the second time c3/4 and had it plated with bone bank bone and it was a breeze. There is nothing worse than the pain and aggravation of having these kind of problems. It severely limits you and its just not worth it. I would make sure you get two opinions unless you live in a major city and have a highly regarded and very busy spinal neurosurgeon. Then I would do whatever he or she says. There are also people who see spinal orthopedic surgeons and have good luck, although I never have. I am sure they approach the surgery the same way. I know two levels is more complex than one, but just get it done. I can tell you this, that eventually you will have to anyway, and the sooner you do it the better you will feel.

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in order to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly. Some kind of small or acute fractures can be cured but risky for large fractures like compound fractures. Bone generally has the ability to regenerate completely but requires a very small fracture space or some sort of scaffold to do so. Bone grafts may be autologous (bone harvested from the patients own body, often from the iliac crest), allograft (cadaveric bone usually obtained from a bone bank), or synthetic (often made of hydroxyapatite or other naturally occurring and biocompatible substances) with similar mechanical properties to bone. Most bone grafts are expected to be reabsorbed and replaced as the natural bone heals over a few months time. The principles involved in successful bone grafts include osteoconduction (guiding the reparative growth of the natural bone), osteoinduction ...
Bony defects especially in the socket do not allow a good fixation of the implant. These defects were traditionally filled with bone grafts obtained from the patient or from a bone bank. The problems with bones grafts are lack of availability, additional surgery to obtain graft, resorption, risk of infection, and transmission of diseases via banked bone. Augmented or custom-made metal implants suffered from lack of integration with bones - resulting in their loosening. The development of Trabecular metal has addressed these problems. Trabecular Metal is a unique, highly porous biomaterial made from elemental tantalum which resembles bone in structure and mechanical function and integrates very well with patients bone. It can be fashioned into various shapes to fill bone defects. There is no risk of resorption and transmission of disease. Trabecular Metal implants have revolutionized joint replacement surgery and made complex reconstructions possible.. ...
Alongside the standard donor bone transfer, bone substitutes have established themselves, improved in quality and are being increasingly used in the surgical treatment of dysmorphic defects or defects following inflammation, tumor surgery or trauma, particularly in the last three decades. With the discussion about infectious disease transmission through tissue from bone banks, the use of donor bone has receded into the background. For this reason, suitable bone substitutes are being sought constantly. Implants of many different physical and chemical substance groups have been tested for their suitability as bone substitutes, but an ideal material has yet to be found. In animal experiment models and their clinical application in humans, various bone substitutes have been evaluated for the dynamic of the resulting bone formation using nuclear medical and radiological procedures and have been examined histologically for their value as functional bone substitutes. Compared to autogenous bone grafts, ...

A method by which immune responses to cortical bone grafts and other substrates (e.g., cement, IPN, etc.) can be minimized and at the same time graft osteoinductive potential can be improved, and improved graft substrate materials are disclosed. The method of the invention provides new types of bone grafts that incorporate into host bone more thoroughly and more rapidly, eliminating long-term complications, such as fracture, non-union, infection, and rejection. In the method of the invention, bone grafts or other substrates are modified to have an osteoinductive surface modification that the recipients body will accept as its own tissue type and therefore will not reject or otherwise cause to fail. The osteoinductive surface modification comprises a biopolymer matrix coating that is seeded with periosteal cells that have been previously harvested either from the graft recipient or from an allogenic or xenogenic donor source.

BACKGROUND: In cases when the alveolar crest is too narrow to host an implant, lateral augmentation is required. The use of autogenous bone blocks harvested from the iliac crest is often demanded. One disadvantage is the associated patient morbidity.. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to clinically and histologically evaluate the use of morselized impacted bone allograft, a novel technique for reconstruction of the narrow alveolar crest.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two patients with completely edentulous maxillae and one partially edentulous, with a mean age of 77 years (range 76-79 years) were included in the study. The alveolar crest width was ,3 mm without possibility to place any implant. Bone grafts were taken from a bone bank in Gävle Hospital. Bone from the neck of femur heads was milled to produce bone chips. The milled bone was partially defatted by rinsing in 37 degrees C saline solution. After compression of the graft pieces with a size of 15 mm (height), 30 mm (length), and 6 mm ...
This procedure involves drilling one larger hole or several smaller holes into the femoral head to relieve pressure in the bone and create channels for new blood vessels to nourish the affected areas of the hip.. When osteonecrosis of the hip is diagnosed early, core decompression is often successful in preventing collapse of the femoral head and the development of arthritis.. Core decompression is often combined with bone grafting to help regenerate healthy bone and support cartilage at the hip joint. A bone graft is healthy bone tissue that is transplanted to an area of the body where it is needed.. Many bone graft options are available today. The standard technique is to take extra bone from one part of your body (harvest) and move (graft) it to another part of your body. This type of graft is called an autograft.. Many surgeons use bone that is harvested from a donor or cadaver. This type of graft is typically acquired through a bone bank. Like other organs, bone can be donated upon ...
You can exercise religiously, eat a diet which is healthy, and follow every recommendation that has been given to you by your doctor. But regardless of how well-conditioned or healthy your body may be, sometime, the lower back of your body is almost set to create problems for you. For many people, this pain of low back is just a slight annoyance that occurs occasionally, stays around for a few days, and then gets all right. For others, there seems to be no pain relief. When this pain gets unrelieved, then it goes way ahead of a physical sensation.. In a few cases, arthrodesis (spinal fusion) might be performed at the same time to assist steady parts of the spine performed with Decompressive Laminectomy . The surgery of Spinal fusion is a surgery that generally takes up quite a few hours. There are different processes of spinal fusion. The simplest methods, is carried out by getting bone from other part of your body, or get it through a bone bank. It is then used to create a link between ...

Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Alteration of the geometrical surface configuration of cortical bone allografts may improve incorporation into host bone. A porous biodegradable coating that would maintain immediate structural recovery and subsequently allow normal graft healing and remodeling by promoting bony ingrowth could provide an osteoconductive surface scaffold. We investigated the feasibility of augmenting cortical bone grafts with osteoconductive biodegradable polymeric scaffold coatings. Three types of bone grafts were prepared: Type I - cortical bone without coating (control), Type II - cortical bone coated with PLGA‐foam, Type III - cortical bone coated with PPF‐foam. The grafts were implanted into the rat tibial metaphysis (16 …animals for each type of bone graft). Post‐operatively the animals were sacrificed at 2 weeks and 4 weeks ...
Massive bone allografts have been used for limb salvage of bone tumor resections as an alternative to endoprostheses, although they have different outcomes and risks. There is no general consensus about when to use these alternatives, but when it is possible to save the native joints after the resection of a long bone tumor, intercalary allografts offer some advantages despite complications, such as fracture. The management and outcomes of this complication deserve more study.. ...

A microbiological culture, or microbial culture, is a method of multiplying microbial organisms by letting them reproduce in predetermined culture medium under controlled laboratory conditions. Microbial cultures are foundational and basic diagnostic methods used extensively as a research tool in molecular biology. Microbial cultures are used to determine the type of organism, its abundance in the sample being tested, or both. It is one of the primary diagnostic methods of microbiology and used as a tool to determine the cause of infectious disease by letting the agent multiply in a predetermined medium. For example, a throat culture is taken by scraping the lining of tissue in the back of the throat and blotting the sample into a medium to be able to screen for harmful microorganisms, such as Streptococcus pyogenes, the causative agent of strep throat.[1] Furthermore, the term culture is more generally used informally to refer to selectively growing a specific kind of microorganism in the ...

When you fundraise for Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, one of the many things that you are helping to fund is the Brain Tumour Tissue Bank. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is the sole funder of the Brain Tumour Tissue Bank, which is housed in state-of-the-art facilities located at University Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, London, Ontario.. We recently went on a tour of the facility, which is located close to the surgery theatres to ensure that tissue samples are collected and processed as quickly as possible.. The Brain Tumour Tissue Bank started when Iain, a nine year old boy, became ill with an inoperable brain stem tumour. His family realized that there was no cure and that research was the only way to find a cure. The Brain Tumour Tissue Bank officially opened on June 10, 1991, the first anniversary of Iains death ...
Complex skeletal injuries and large bone fractures are still a significant clinical problem in US. Approximately 1.5 million Americans (veterans, their families, and civilians) every year suffer from bone loss due to traumatic skeletal injuries, infection, and resection of primary tumors that require extensive grafting to bridge the gap. The US bone graft market is over $2.2 billion a year. Due to insufficient mechanical stability, lack of vascularity, and inadequate resorption of the graft, patients with traumatic large skeletal injuries undergo multiple costly operations followed by extensive recovery steps to maintain proper bone alignment and length. Current strategies for repairing damaged or diseased bones include autologous or allograft bone transplantations. However, limited availability of autografts and risk of disease transmission associated with allografts have necessitated the search for the development of new bone graft options and strategies. The overall goal of this project is to develop
Packing of bone defect with particulate allografts is a commonly performed clinical procedure. However, the ideal size of bone particles used to fill bone defects is ill-defined.

  • Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSC) are typically used to generate bone tissue by a process resembling intramembranous ossification, i.e., by direct osteoblastic differentiation. (
  • Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSC) from human adults have the ability to generate bone tissue in a variety of experimental models ( 4 ), and hold great potential in regenerative medicine. (
  • They are easily (non-invasively) collected and stored, they provide a rapidly available source of stem cells for HSCT, they extend the number of patients for whom HSCT is an option (because of their immunological immaturity), and they have been shown to give clinical outcomes equivalent to HSCT using bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cells. (
  • For the most part, such use would be largely unnecessary, as most patients who need an autologous HSCT have haematopoietic stem cells collected from their peripheral blood or bone marrow when required. (
  • The emergence and rapid growth of private cord blood banks provides a significant challenge to the viability of public cord blood banks - a challenge that is likely to grow if evidence accumulates regarding cord blood stem cells' utility in regenerative medicine. (

  • The ultrastructural analysis showed red blood cells in lacunae within the bone tissue . (
  • In conclusion, despite bone tissue processing by the musculoskeletal tissue banks , cells may be found within the bone used for allogeneic grafts . (
  • Banking your child's cells today preserves them in their prime, the best they will ever be. (
  • These cells, found in teeth as well as in the bone marrow, can form a variety of cell types in the laboratory, including fat cells, cartilage, bone, tendon and ligaments, muscle cells, skin cells and even nerve cells. (
  • This length of time means there are more opportunities for the cell bank to obtain viable cells for storage and the process is completely non-invasive. (
  • Teenage girls who don't menstruate or who have longer than normal times between periods produce less estrogen, the hormone that regulates the rate at which bone is broken down (bone resorption). (
  • If estrogen becomes chronically low, then bone resorption can occur at a faster rate than it should. (
  • The in-growing blood vessels deliver osteoblastic, osteoclastic, and hematopoietic precursors, which mediate resorption of the cartilaginous template and formation of vascularized bone containing the so-called stromal sinusoids, which provide the microenvironment for hematopoiesis ( 1 ). (
  • Pathological bone resorption is a cause of significant morbidity in diseases affecting the skeleton, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, periodontitis, and cancer metastasis. (

  • 2. A sterile malleable bone composition as claimed in claim 1 wherein said composition includes added bone morphogenic proteins. (
  • Some families do have a higher predisposition to cancer and immune disorders and would be far more likely to benefit from cord blood banking than the statistics indicate. (
  • The alteration of balance between these factors can lead to different types of bone disorders. (
  • After menopause - once you lose estrogen - it's not possible to put calcium into your bones, so you have to work on it much sooner. (
  • He counsels his patients on calcium and vitamin D intake to make their bones as thick and strong as possible. (
  • A diet that is low in calcium, vitamin D and other nutrients needed for bone formation can all result in lower BMD. (
  • If you need calcium because you're, say, breast-feeding, the body releases extra from your bones in a process that benefits baby and doesn't hurt mom. (
  • Bone is a major storage pool for calcium and phosphate, and it stores substances like heavy metals in low levels for long periods of time," Dr. Cosman explains. (
  • They also don't tell you how much calcium these animals need and can get metabolic bone disease and become paralyzed. (
  • Because she had metabolic bone disease, this is what I first thought was the reason she was not eating, but lo and behold when we took her to the vet (yes you need a herp vet for them), her calcium levels were high, which meant she was at the beginning of developing eggs. (
  • 5. A sterile malleable bone composition as claimed in claim 1 comprising the addition of a calcium salt to the carrier. (
  • The invention is directed toward a sterile malleable bone composition for application to a bone defect site to promote new bone growth at the site comprising a mixture of demineralized osteogenic bone powder with a particle size ranging from about 250 to about 750 microns and surface demineralized cortical. (

  • In contrast, the banking of autologous cord blood in private cord blood banks is based on the hope that it may, at some point in the future, be of therapeutic benefit in treating or curing any form of chronic or degenerative disease in its donor or in others. (
  • A bone scan images the metabolic activity of the skeleton. (
  • This has traditionally been accomplished by imaging a radionuclide whose physiology closely mimics a metabolic process within bone. (
