Stem cell method shows promise for resynchronizing heart tissue

09/4/2013 | Yahoo

Researchers discovered that implanting induced pluripotent stem cells into the damaged regions of mouse hearts can resynchronize cardiac motion following a heart attack. High-resolution ultrasound images showed harmonized pumping in previously damaged heart tissue where the stem cells were implanted, according to the study published in the Journal of Physiology. The discovery offers an alternative solution to heart attack patients who would not benefit from device-based resynchronization.
