Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) expanded in vitro have been proposed as a potential therapy for congenital or acquired skin defects in pediatrics. The aim of this pre-clinical study was to investigate the effects of intradermal injections of MSC in experimental cutaneous wound repair comparing allogeneic and autologous adipose stem cells (ASCs) and(More)
INTRODUCTION Fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) may reduce pulmonary hypertension and ameliorate postnatal cardiac output. The effects of sustained early (ETO) and late (LTO) tracheal occlusion on left ventricular (LV) cells in the lamb model have not been described. MATERIALS AND METHODS CDH was created in lambs(More)
BACKGROUND The main hydrosoluble metabolites in three different human congenital pulmonary malformations are described by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. METHODS Bronchogenic cyst (BC), congenital lobar emphysema (CLE) and intrapulmonary sequestration (IPS), were analyzed with respect to a control sample. The extracted metabolites were(More)
BACKGROUND Tracheal occlusion (TO) stimulates lung growth in fetuses affected with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) although the processes involved in lung maturation still remain unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate the metabolomic profile of amniotic fluid (AF) following TO in fetal lamb model in order to obtain an indirect view of(More)
Congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAMs) include cystic and non-cystic lung lesions. These represent about 30-40% of developmental lung bud anomaly lesions mainly diagnosed during pregnancy or in newborn infants; or sometimes they remain undetected until adult life. The malformation usually presents as a sporadic, non-hereditary lung abnormality,(More)
