Introduction: Bowel perforation (BP) occurs as the complication of many gastrointestinal problems. Omental patch (OP) is one of the methods to place omentum flaps in the perforated area. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) may increase regeneration process in all tissues.
Aim: to demonstrate the role of MSC in accelerating of wound healing process by analyzing fibroblast and collagen appereance in perforated bowel conditions. Methods: Using a BP rabbit model, 18 rabbit were randomly assigned into three groups: combination of umbilical cord (UC)-MSCs injection and OP (T1), OP only (T2) and vehicle control (Veh). Hematoxylin-eosin staining and Massonís trichrome staining were performed to analyze the level of fibroblast and collagen. Wound length were measured using standarized caliper. Results: The study showed a significant (P
