Mayo Clinic Restores Disrupted Heartbeat with Regenerative Intervention

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Sept. 3, 2013 — Mayo Clinic researchers have found a way to resynchronize cardiac motion following a heart attack using stem cells. Scientists implanted engineered stem cells, also known as induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, into damaged regions of mouse hearts following a heart attack. This regenerative approach successfully targeted the origin of abnormal cardiac motion, [...]
