Brief Summary:
The aim of this trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an autologous muscle stem cell therapy in the treatment of congenital urinary incontinence in isolated epispadias.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Urinary Incontinence Epispadias, Male Biological: Primary human muscle stem cells (Satori-01) Other: Placebo Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Epispadias is the mildest form of exstrophy-epispadias complex (EEC); a congenital malformation disorder involving the midline abdominal and genitourinary structures. Patients with epispadias have a defect in the urethral sphincter resulting in urinary incontinence. This trial investigates the injection of autologous primary human muscle stem cells into the urethral sphincter with the aim of repairing the defect and restore the anatomic ability for continence.

Eligible participants will undergo muscle biopsy during a routine cystoscopy. Acquired muscle tissue is used for the isolation and expansion of muscle stem cells ex-vivo. Muscle stem cells are injected into the urethral sphincter under visual control using cystoscopy. Participants are assessed for safety and efficacy for a minimum of 12 months post-intervention.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Verum Group
Participants receive primary human muscle stem cells as one-time injection into the urethral sphincter region under visual control using cystoscopy.
Biological: Primary human muscle stem cells (Satori-01)
Primary human muscle stem cells are isolated from patient's muscle tissue and expanded ex-vivo. They are injected into the urethral sphincter region as a one-time autologous treatment.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo group
Participants receive placebo solution as one-time injection into the external urethral sphincter region under visual control using cystoscopy.
Other: Placebo
Placebo is the injection solution without muscle stem cells.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of Intervention-related Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Upto 12 months post-intervention ]
    Characterization of type, incidence, severity, and duration of adverse events

  2. Change in Leak Point Pressure (LPP) [ Time Frame: Six months post-intervention ]
    Change in LPP is calculated from baseline measurement
