Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: UC-MSCs therapy
transplant collagen scaffold loaded with UC-MSCs to treat infertility caused by thin endometrium or endometrial scarring
Procedure: UC-MSCs therapy
After history taking, physical examination, ultrasound examination and hysteroscopy examination,infertile women diagnosed with thin endometrium or endometrial scarring will be included in the clinical trial. A collagen scaffold loaded with UC-MSCs will be transplanted into the uterine cavity during hysteroscopy, and participants will receive hormone replacement therapy before and after the treatment. Postoperative observations including ultrasound examination once a month for 3 times and hysteroscopy in the third month after first UC-MSCs therapy. Those whose endometrium is suitable for pregnancy will be recommended attempting conception actively. The next round of cell therapy will be conducted 3 cycles after the first month if the endometrial growth is unsatisfactory.
Other Name: collagen scaffold
