AIMS Intramyocardial injections of cells can damage tissue and enhance dissociation-induced cell death. We assessed whether epicardial delivery of cell sheets could overcome these issues in a rat model of chronic myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS Eighty-two rats that had undergone coronary ligation and simultaneous harvest of fat tissue to yield the adipose-derived stromal cell (ADSC) fraction were randomized 1 month after infarction to receive injections of either control medium (n… CONTINUE READING
