Abstract

Background

Growth plate injury in children could produce limb length discrepancy and angular deformity. Removal of damaged physis or bony bar and insertion of spacers produced variable results and for large defects in young children, the treatment is challenging. In this study, we used tissue-engineered mesenchymal stem cells (MSC-based chitosan scaffold) for restoration of the damaged physis. The usage of chitosan as a spacer was also investigated.

Materials and methods

An experimental model of growth arrest was created by removing lateral 50% of distal femoral physis of fourteen 4-week-olds albino rabbits. The left side growth plate defects were filled with MSC-based chitosan scaffold in 10 and scaffold alone in 4 rabbits. For all the rabbits, right-side defects were left alone as the control limb. After 3 months, femoral bones were harvested and gross inspection and radiology for measurement of angulations were done; histological study for evaluation of regeneration of physis was also done.

Results

The hemiphyseal resection procedures were successful and all of the operated limbs showed angular deformities. There was a trend toward less angular deformity in cases in which more concentration of MSCs with chitosan scaffold was used. In cases of transfer of MSCs with concentration of less than 1.5 millions, mixed results were observed and angular deformities were not reduced. Transfer of chitosan alone yielded poor results.

Conclusion

In this study, we have developed an in vitro construction of a transplantable tissue-engineered disk, using natural chitosan scaffold and MSCs. We investigated the efficacy of these disks for repairing the defect of growth plate cartilage at distal femoral physis. Our results showed that the beneficial effect of these cells on scaffold appeared in more concentration of cells.

Level of evidence

Level III. Low power comparative study.
