Dr. Ross Rich of Cave Creek Equine Recently Presented the Outcome of 42 Horses with Stifle Injuries Treated with Vet-Stem Regenerative Cell Therapy

Poway, California (PRWEB) November 27, 2013

Dr. Ross Rich of Cave Creek Equine Surgical and Diagnostic Imaging Center in Arizona had the opportunity to present his positive findings on the "Outcome of 42 Horses with Stifle Injuries Treated with Adipose-Derived Regenerative Cells (stem cells) and IRAP" (Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist Protein Therapy) at this year’s North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association Conference in Atlanta Georgia this month.

Dr. Rich’s findings proved his hypothesis true that treatment of stifle injuries with stem cells and IRAP could improve athletic outcomes, performance longevity, and shorten recovery times when compared to other treatment methods for similar injuries. Stifle injuries causing ongoing lameness are relatively common in performance horses and have prematurely ended many an equine athlete’s career. Stifle problems can be refractory to treatment and have long recovery times. Previous studies evaluating treatment of stifle abnormalities with stem cells had low case numbers and limited athletic performance follow-up, but Dr. Rich’s presentation shed some new light on the topic.

This study focused on a large series of clinical cases, with a standardized rehabilitation program, and a stringent, long-term criterion for success. Dr. Rich’s findings demonstrated good to excellent (over 64% of the subjects) long-term return to full work, in horses with lameness caused by stifle injuries, treated with arthroscopy, stem cell therapy by Vet-Stem, and IRAP. Dr. Rich also found evidence in this study to support the continued use of these treatment methods for successful treatment of bone, cartilage, and ligament injuries/lesions of the equine stifle.

Dr. Rich approaches his care of horses with a holistic methodology believing that lameness can be a result of more than one injury. His facility in Cave Creek offers medical and surgical services geared towards diagnosis and treatment of sports-related problems in the elite and future equine athlete. Cave Creek Equine Surgical & Diagnostic Imaging Center strives to keep the veterinarians, technicians, and office staff updated in the most innovative care of the horse from the beloved pet to international competition horse, and have treated over 600 horses with Vet-Stem’s Regenerative Cell Therapy, with amazing results over the last ten years.
