OBJECTIVES Most tissue-engineering approaches to restore injured heart muscle result in distortion of left ventricular geometry. In the present study we suggest seeding embryonic stem cells in a liquid matrix for myocardial restoration. METHODS Undifferentiated green fluorescent protein-labeled mouse embryonic stem cells (2 x 10 6 ) were seeded in… CONTINUE READING
