Autologous hematopoietic tissue graft is a collection of stem cells, paltelets and tissue factors that are placed into an operative site to promote healing and prevent infections. Much of the aplication has been in plastic and cardiac surgery as well as in wound healing. There are no guideliens that I could locate, cosnesnsus statemetns or large prospective studies and there are studies that show that this treatment is not effective as well as many reports of effectiveness.
