Stem Cells Repair Damaged Hearts: Regenerating Cardiac Tissue After Heart Failure and Attack

Heart Failure When areas of the heart muscle die from reduced blood supply during events like heart attack, the remaining tissue works harder to compensate. This strains the heart over time, causing it to thin and stretch. Chambers dilate, further stressing function. Heart failure ultimately develops, where the struggling organ…
