Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death worldwide. The effects of acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) and congestive heart failure present great challenges for doctors and researchers alike. Heart attacks cause damage to the heart muscle, making it less efficient at pumping blood throughout the circulatory system. The heart has minimal ability to regenerate, so the lost muscle is replaced by scar tissue. This leaves patients with reduced cardiac function, which often progresses to heart failure, where the heart cannot meet the body’s demand for blood flow.
Autologous cell therapy is the new insight on the treatment of cardiovascular disorder has helped in identifying the potential to overcome cardiovascular disorder with cell therapy treatment.
