The soft, porous substance that surrounds the inner spaces of bones is known as bone marrow. It’s the area where blood is made. Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) is a promising regenerative therapy that can assist patients with mild to severe osteoarthritis and tendon injuries heal more swiftly.
Blood and stem cells, the primordial cells that can turn into many types of blood cells, are stored in tiny niches in the bone marrow. Most of these stem cells can also regenerate new tissue such as bone, cartilage, fat, and blood vessels under certain conditions. Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate is a fluid made up of cells extracted from bone marrow.
How can you Obtain BMC?
The initial stage in making BMC is to extract bone marrow aspirate from a major bone, such as the pelvic bone, using a non-invasive approach that involves removing bone marrow with a BMC kit containing needles. In most cases, the treatment is performed under sedation or general anaesthesia. After that, the aspirate is processed using a centrifuge. The amount and quality of cells, hugely useful stem and progenitor cells, can be affected by bone marrow processing procedures.
BMC in Tissue Repairing
Researchers are currently figuring out that what is the mechanism of action of BMC and how efficient they are in clinical settings. BMC, on the other hand, is thought to reduce (modulate) inflammation and may even aid in the formation of new tissue, according to professionals.
Here are some of the major functions of BMC:
- Repair bone fractures that haven’t healed on their own.
- Facilitate the healing of wounds.
- Improve the efficacy of the cartilage.
- Remedy for bone death (osteonecrosis).
- Help in the improvement of your tendons.
- Delay the progression of the disease; such as in the case of arthritis
The Mechanism Behind BMC
While Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is comparable in its capacity to leverage the body’s potential to mend itself through the use of growth factors, BMC effectively uses regenerative cells found in a patient’s own bone marrow. The marrow includes a large pool of “pluripotent” stem cells that can be extracted and
