Biologics has come a long way from visco supplementation and microfracture to oral supplements and now Orthobiologics. They are now in clinical realityMonocytes is the new kid on the block.
The function uses and method to harvest monocytes with charged gravity assisted selected filtration is discussed.
This is in its early stages and more work needs to be done to look into long term outcomes.
Literature is presented to better understand monocytes and process of harvesting.
