Since 2014 Medrego AlloMT Cell has been used to successfully treat more than 400 horses in Europe and the Middle East. Here you can see just a few of our success cases with Ultrasound images and short descriptions by the veterinarian.

Horse No.1

Age: 9 years
Type: Showjumping, S-class
Diagnosis: Insert. Desmopatilig susp, RH, prox

Before the treatment

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before stem cell injection approx 2/3 of the suspensory insertion. Notice a little periosteal reaction, arrow, and hypoechogenicity of the fibers (thin arrow). Very difficult case to treat; normally with conservative treatment, NSAID+Rest+controlled exercise. Usually, we see a poor outcome for those kinds of injuries.

After 3,5 months

Veterinarian comments: Complete healing, the pony is put back to work, trained up over 6 – 8 weeks. Now competing at the high level again.

Horse No.2

Age: 9 years
Type: Show jumping
Diagnosis: Injury, SDFT, prox

Before the treatment

Horse treatment with stem cells

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before Medrego AlloMT Cell injection proximal SDFT, below carpal region, 1/3 of the tendon.

After 4 months

Horse treatment with Stem Cells

Veterinarian comments: The horse has returned to normal work; the lesion is hardly recognizable on ultrasound scan.

Horse No.3

Age: 8 years
Type: Dressage, High Level
Diagnosis: Desmitis, insert lig susp. Prox, LH

Before the treatment

Horse treatment with Stem Cells

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before Medrego AlloMT Cell injection, 2/3 of the insertional region, Very severe injury; The horse is lame grad 2,5-3, on the longe, graded on a scale from 0-5, where grad 5 is not weight bearing.
The lesion is in the bottom of the picture; The structure of the fibers is normal, more rougher woven, in a suspensory ligament, but here we see much hypoechogenicity, which shows a big lesion in the tendon; Normally the horses have a guarded prognosis, for returning to full athletic performance.

After 3,5 months

Horse treatment with Stem Cells

Veterinarian comments: Back to normal work, complete healing without scar tissue, hyperechogenicity.

Horse No.4

Age: 6 years
Type: Dressage horse, with high potential
Diagnosis: Insertional desmopathy, lig. suspensorium, proximal, RH

Before the treatment

Horse treatment with Stem Cells

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before Medrego AlloMT Cell injection, Severe lesion in lig suspensorium, proximal insertion; Damage to the fibers where it inserts on the bone; Hypoechogenicity, broken fiber pattern.

After 4 months

Horse treatment with Stem Cells

Veterinarian comments: Complete recovery, the horse has returned to work.

Horse No.5

Age: 5 years
Type: Dressage, pre-start
Diagnosis: Lesion lig susp, LF, lower 1/3 + distally

Before the treatment

Horse treatment with Stem Cell Therapy

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before Medrego AlloMT Cell injection approx 1/5 of the lig susp.  Both core lesions, also involving the margin of the tendon; very difficult to treat.

After 4 months

Horse treatment with Stem Cell Therapy

Veterinarian comments: Healing in progress, this type of lesion takes several months to heal, note the filling of the lesion.

Horse No.6

Age: 5 years
Type: Dressage, start level, sports pony
Diagnosis: Prox. Insertional desmitis, lig susp., RH

Before the treatment

Equine Stem Cell Therapy

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before AlloMT Cell injection prox 50 % of the lig. Suspensorium; (Arrow), very big lesion, and very difficult to treat; Hypoechogenicity is dominating, pretreatment.

After 4 months

Equine Stem Cell Therapy

Veterinarian comments: Control, The horse has returned back to daily training.

Horse No.7

Age: 17 years
Type: Showjumping
Diagnosis: Injury SDFT, prox. 1/3, LF

Before the treatment

Stem Cell therapy for Horse treatment

Veterinarian comments: Size of the lesion before Medrego AlloMT Cell injection 90-95% of SDFT; The size of this lesion is bad; It is almost impossible to do anything.
Normally this type of lesion is so severe, that the animal is euthanized, and a future career is impossible; Here we tried to do the impossible, and treat this very valuable animal. Most of the tendon is affected.

After 3,5 months

Stem Cell therapy for Horse treatment

Veterinarian comments: A healing that one didn’t think about! Yes we still see a bigger circumferential diameter of the tendon, but almost normal fiber pattern and realignment of the fibers; Over time the diameter of the tendon will become smaller and smaller, but for now this is very ok: The very special thing is healing of this big a lesion, without scar tissue (seen as hyperechogenicity) in the tendon.
