Recruitment of bone marrow-derived valve interstitial cells is a normal homeostatic process.


Advances in understanding of the maintenance of the cardiac valves during normal cardiac function and response to injury have led to several novel findings, including that there is contribution of extra-cardiac cells to the major cellular population of the valve: the valve interstitial cell (VIC). While suggested to occur in human heart studies, we have… (More)
