Abstract: This is the first time that PCL-TCP composites have been used as a carrier for stem cells in an anterior multilevel spinal fusion model. We believe that the strategy of regenerative medicine using biodegradable scaffold incorporated with pluripotent stem cells, or "TEC" could coax a spontaneous bone remodeling process eventually resulting in desired bone formation and fusion. This would circumvent the need for costly growth factor additions and lead to successful implants for spinal fusion applications.
