In this case we see a fracture of the tibia and fibula three months post treatment on the left of the picture pair. This fracture was acquired in an automobile accident by a pilot for the Saudi airlines. Unable to return to work as a result of the fracture the pilot sought treatment in Germany. One month after application of the stem cells, as seen in the right X-ray, the leg is sufficiently healed for the pilot to return to work.
Self-donated adult stem cells derived from bone marrow are particularly adept at healing such fractures. This also appears to be the case in other body organs and structures for example, stem cells derived from heart tissue, seem to repair heart tissue from a myocardial infarction, better than other stem cells. This bears out the observed differentiation of human cell and tissue development.
