INTRODUCTION Heart failure following myocardial infarction (MI) impacts millions of people each year in the US. The field of tissue engineering has developed several potential therapies for treating MI including injectable acellular hydrogels. These injectable biomaterials can either be synthetic or naturally derived, and have the potential to be delivered minimally invasively. AREAS COVERED This review covers the different methods of delivery and presents the initial work on the use of… CONTINUE READING
