Cardiac stem cell Therapies – The Outbreak in the Heart Failure Treatment.
Cardiac Stem cell Therapy is an innovative approach for the treatment of damaged heart tissues. In Cardiac stem Cell therapy, The derived cells are intramyocardially applied to the damaged target tissue in order to replace and regenerate them. Within Few months, the myocardial cells are impacted by the stem cells and thereby improve the contractility of the affected segments. Consequently, this brings a patient’s ejection fraction to normal levels. This Therapy is Highly potential especially in tackling Myocardial Infarction(MI) and Congestive Heart Failure(CHF).

The valves found in the heart includes the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve and aortic valve. Each valve has flaps called leaflets that open and close once during each heartbeat. Sometimes improper opening or closure of the valves, disrupt the entire circulation through your heart to your body leading to heart valve disease.  Heart valve surgery is a procedure to treat heart valve disease, in which the surgeon repairs or replaces the affected heart valves.  

Heart valve disease can develop before birth (congenital) or can be acquired sometime during one's lifetime due to Rheumatic fever, endocarditis, coronary artery disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease) and syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease), aortic aneurysms.


Interventional Cardiology is generally a non-surgical procedure that makes use of small, flexible tube called Catheter in order to repair weakened and damaged blood vessels, narrowed arteries, or other parts of the affected heart structure.
