Polypropylene mesh seeded with fibroblasts: A new approach for the repair of abdominal wall defects in rats.

PURPOSE The purpose of study was to develop bioengineered scaffolds by seeding primary mouse embryo fibroblast cells (p-MEF) on polypropylene mesh and to test its efficacy for the repair of abdominal wall defects in rats. METHODS The study was conducted on 18 clinically healthy adult Wistar rats of either sex. The animals were randomly divided into two… (More)
