Myocyte loss due to ischemia/reperfusion injury leads to cardiac dysfunction and heart failure, and the concentration of current therapy is limited on preventing the progression. Recent interest has focused on transplantation of stem cells to differentiate and replenish the loss of myocytes. Adipose tissue represents an alternative and abundant source of… CONTINUE READING
