Pars Defect/Fractures

Did you know that certain bones in your body that, if fractured (broken) or surgically fused (i.e., joined together), may be difficult to mend or heal?

It is true. One challenge in the field of orthopedics is the limited supply (or lack) of blood to tissues. Bone-forming cells and cells that break down and resorb old bone are circulated through the blood and are vital for healing bone and tissue. Sometimes a bone fracture may damage a nearby blood vessel, which may compromise healing.

Certain structures in an adult’s body do not have a blood supply. Examples include:

  • Intervertebral discs, such as the discs in the low back (lumbar spine). However, during the time a child is growing to maturity, endplates on the top and bottom of each disc provide some blood supply for disc nutrition.
  • Joints (e.g., knees)

Avascular necrosis is the deadening of a bone caused by lack of blood flow to the area. It is most often found in the femoral head. Mesenchymal stem cell injections may increase in the blood flow pattern to this area and therefore increase regeneration of the deadening bone.
