The results of toluidine blue staining revealed that cartilage cells in the tendon-bone interface gradually penetrated into the bone cell areas, which formed a 'bone-fibrocartilage-tendon-like' transition area in the SVF-FG treatment group, whereas the tendon-bone interface was mainly composed of collagen fiber connection, with a small amount of blue cells similar to chondrocytes in the control group [Figure 1]b.
