[A]n innovative therapeutic method... we can expect that in the? ?near future it will become the first-line treatment in female patients who have? ?not benefited from conventional options. This method could also become the? ?first-choice preventive measure (e.g. in women after vaginal delivery) if optimal? ?procedures are developed for the harvesting, culture and administration of stem? ?cells into the urethral sphincter. ?Tomasz Rechberger
