Degeneration of cardiac tissues is considered a major cause of mortality in the western world and is expected to be a greater problem in the forthcoming decades. Cardiac damage is associated with dysfunction and irreversible loss of cardiomyocytes. Stem cell therapy for ischemic heart failure is very promising approach in cardiovascular medicine. Initial(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute myocardial infarction is a social health problem of epidemiological relevance, with high levels of morbidity and mortality. Stress is one of the modifiable risk factors that triggers acute myocardial infarction. Stress is a result of a set of physiological reactions, which when exaggerated in intensity or duration can lead to imbalances(More)
The extensive clinical experiments with stem cells, particularly in the treatment of oncohematological diseases, opened up the possibility of trying out stem cells with nonhematopoi-etic diseases. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) subsequently emerged as a promising source for the regeneration and repair of various tissues in the treatment of a range of(More)
INTRODUCTION Most cardiomyocytes do not regenerate after myocardial infarction. Porcine small intestinal submucosa has been shown to be effective in tissue repair. OBJECTIVE To evaluate myocardial tissue regeneration and functional effects of SIS implantation in pigs after left ventriculotomy. METHODS Fifteen pigs were assigned to two groups: porcine(More)
