Matrigel promotes angiogenesis in the myocardium from ischemic injury and prevents remodelling of the left ventricle. We assessed the therapeutic efficacy of intracardiac matrigel injection and matrigel-mediated stem cell homing in a rat myocardial infarction (MI) model. Following MI, matrigel (250 μl) or phosphate-buffered solution (PBS) was delivered by intracardiac injection. Compared to the MI control group (MI-PBS), matrigel significantly improved left ventricular function (n= 11, P < 0.05) assessed by pressure-volume loops after 4 weeks. There is no significant difference in infarct size between MI-matrigel (MI-M; 21.48 ± 1.49%, n = 10) and MI-PBS hearts (20.98 ± 1.25%, n = 10). The infarct wall thickness of left ventricle is significantly higher (P < 0.01) in MI-M (0.72 ± 0.02 mm, n = 10) compared with MI-PBS (0.62 ± 0.02 mm, n = 10). MI-M hearts exhibited higher capillary density (border 130.8 ± 4.7 versus 115.4 ± 6.0, P < 0.05; vessels per high-power field [HPF; 400×], n = 6) than MI-PBS hearts. c-Kit(+) stem cells (38.3 ± 5.3 versus 25.7 ± 1.5 c-Kit(+) cells per HPF [630×], n = 5, P < 0.05) and CD34(+) cells (13.0 ± 1.51 versus 5.6 ± 0.68 CD34(+) cells per HPF [630×], n = 5, P < 0.01) were significantly more numerous in MI-M than in MI-PBS in the infarcted hearts (n = 5, P < 0.05). Intracardiac matrigel injection restores myocardial functions following MI, which may attribute to the improved recruitment of CD34(+) and c-Kit(+) stem cells.
