Abstract

Osteoarthritis is a debilitating chronic degenerative disease of cartilage joint surfaces and the knee is the weight-bearing joint most frequently plagued. Intra-articular cell therapies have recently emerged as a method to manage knee osteoarthritis. A literature search identifying all articles involving use of SVF to treat knee osteoarthritis was performed, consulting several databases. In conclusion, 24 clinical trials analysed report good to excellent clinical and radiographic results for the treatment of knee OA with the use of intraarticular administration of SVF.
