Anal sphincter repair with muscle progenitor cell transplantation: serial assessment with iron oxide-enhanced MRI.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess homing of ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO)-labeled muscle progenitor cells in an experimental rabbit model of anal sphincter repair using MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve rabbits underwent external anal sphincterotomy and randomly received injection of either autologous muscle progenitor… (More)
