• stem
  • He introduced the stem cell therapy, for the first time in India, by the deployment of autologous stem cell implantation for repairing the myocardium as an alternative to transplantation, which he did on 26 patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • In an ideal scenario, regenerated tissue would reproduce sophisticated asymmetric helicodoidal architecture of the myocardium with the production of specialized extracellilar matrix to stimulate vascularization in the implanted tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cell
  • Nevertheless, all methods aforementioned have been associated with limited cardiac function improvements and limited cell survival once implanted in the fibrous myocardium. (wikipedia.org)
  • method
  • Recently, we demonstrated polymerase chain reaction to be a rapid and sensitive method for identification of the viral genome in the myocardium of patients with myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy. (ahajournals.org)
  • effects
  • It is primarily used to protect the myocardium from the deleterious effects of hyperkalemia (ie, arrhythmias) by antagonizing the membrane actions of potassium. (medscape.com)
  • agents
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance: The most frequently used MR contrast agents based on Gd-chelates accumulate in the extracellular space which is increased in scarred myocardium. (wikipedia.org)
  • To develop DDS targeting the injured myocardium, we focused on a glycoside-binding protein (GBP) expressed in myocytes and hypothesized that the interaction between GBP and glycosides-conjugated agents can utilize DDS. (ahajournals.org)
