We studied the content of resident myocardial stem cells, cardiomyocyte precursors, in myocardial biopsy specimens from the right ventricular outfl ow tract of patients of the fi rst two years of life with tetralogy of Fallot. Myocardial resident stem cells were detected by the method of confocal immunohistochemistry using antibodies to c-kit and sarcomeric(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) is based on computed tomography, histology, and antibodies to granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor. The role of a novel technique for imaging cells and elastin during endoscopy, probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE), has not yet been investigated in PAP patients. The aim(More)
Interventricular septum myocardium was studied in 40 patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Immunohistochemical assay revealed c-kit-positive resident cardiac stem cells in 82.5% patients. The content of the connective tissue and myofi brillar disarray zones and the degree of cardiomyocyte hypertrophy and myolysis were determined. In 30%(More)
