Gene and protein expression of VEGF in injury site of the external anal sphincter after laser, human adipose-derived stem cells (hADSCs), and combination of laser and hADSCs (laser + hADSCs) treatments. hADSCs labeled by DiI (red). VEGF expression is observed in the hADSCs and laser groups (green). Data are presented as means ± SEM (n = 4 animal per group). **Significant level at p < 0.01 with the sphincterotomy group. ###Significant level at p < 0.0001 with the control group (intact animals). #Significant level at p < 0.05 with the control group. $Significant level at p < 0.05 with the laser + hADSCs group. †††Significant level at p < 0.001 with the hADSCs group. Real-time PCR, immunohistochemistry, and western blotting, external anal sphincter, rabbit (× 10)
