Abstract The rhabdosphincter at the mid urethra is critical for maintaining urinary continence. In a setting of stress urinary incontinence stem cells transplanted into the site of the rhabdosphincter may augment sphincter regeneration and also release trophic factors promoting muscle and nerve integration of this muscle. We hereby review the use of cellular therapy for SUI and our experience with the development of muscle-derived stem cells (MDSCs). (c) 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
