  1. Summary of LV morphological data by planimetry and fibrosis of non-infarcted myocardium collected for each group at twenty-eight days after cell sheet transplantation. LV left ventricular, PW posterior wall, SMC-Tx smooth muscle cell sheet transplantation group, DFB-Tx dermal fibroblast sheet transplantation group, Untreated, untreated group. Each groups n = 5.*p<0.05 vs. Sham, **p<0.05 vs. SMC-Tx.
