Abstract

The development of regenerative medicine has opened up many new therapeutic avenues in veterinary medicine. The focus of regenerative medicine in the horse lies primarily in the musculoskeletal system, where the consequences of injury make tendons, ligaments and joints particularly desirable targets for such interventions. This article focuses on what has been learned from the use of regenerative medicine in naturally-occurring tendon, ligament and joint disease in the horse.
