We overview the current knowledge about the use of skeletal myoblasts in regeneration of infarcted myocardium. Myoblasts are attractive candidates for cell source for cardiomyoplasty in chronic postmyocardial injury as indicated by experimental and initial clinical experience. We also review the recent developments in skeletal myoblasts transplantation(More)
We present a case of a 45-year-old man with symptomatic heart failure and ischaemic functional mitral regurgitation (FMR), who underwent a successful percutaneous trans-coronary venous mitral annuloplasty with the Carillon system. The procedure resulted in clinical improvement as well as in a decrease in the degree of MR as assessed by echocardiography.(More)
