Mechanism of Ventricular Volume Improvement after Autologous Stem Cell Implantation in Acute Myocardial Infarction

Published on: 2015-03-02

Abstract

We tried to obtain a significant number of CD133+ and CD34+ haematologic precursors from systemic circulation by aphaeresis, and analyzed necrosis area reduction by Tc-91 myocardial perfusion scanning and left ventricular diameters by cardiac ultrasound in a group of patients who received stem cell therapy in the first week after a myocardial infarction.
