Dr. centeno lecture

The Dr. Centeno lecture next week at Lunds University in Lund, Sweden will be on the use of mesenchymal stem cells to treat traumatic cervical facet joint injuries. The topic of the lecture will be: “Cervical Radiofrequency or Biologics for Facet Injury?”

Abstract: The elucidation of cervical facet injury as an injury mechanism secondary to MVC has created a new avenue of treatment that didn’t existmerely 20 years ago. While radiofrequency ablation (RFA) appears effective in many patients, it suffers from the inevitable side effects of denervation such as hyperalgesia and muscle atrophy. As a result, a new concept has arisen that may supplant RFA-the use of biologic agents to repair the damaged cervical joint. The anatomy of which structures are injured about the facet joint will be reviewed as well asvarious biologic strategies for joint repair. Data from peripheral joint cases (n=250) will be extrapolated to cervical facet injury and several cervical facet cases where culture expanded mesenchymal stem cells have been injected intra-articular will be discussed. Finally, future directions for research and therapy will be postulated.
