Vascular supply is generally necessary to allow healing of a defect. This is why an ACL injury will not heal as it has no blood supply. It is the same story with the annulus of the disc. No blood supply means that the torn fibers will not heal. While it sounds like a good idea, Discseel will be ineffective to repair the disc.
