Abstract

Revascularization of the heart is the prime objective following a myocardial infarction as the morbidity inflicted severely impacts the patient’s lifestyle and working capabilities. The use of stem cell transplantation is one route that is receiving considerable funding from government and private sources. This book examines the various methods available that will help the patient to recover from the adverse effects of a myocardial infarction. This book takes the reader from bench to bedside, from chalk to dust, and explains in clear detail how the mechanisms of stem cell transplantation work.
