Latest Cardiac muscle Stories
Johns Hopkins biomedical engineers, working with colleagues in Korea, have produced a laboratory chip with nanoscopic grooves and ridges capable of growing cardiac tissue that more closely resembles natural heart muscle.
Though they remain a leading killer, heart attacks can be effectively treated provided they can be rapidly diagnosed following initial onset of symptoms.
Almost a century after it was discovered in fruit flies with notches in their wings, the Notch signaling pathway may come to play an important role in the recovery from heart attacks.
Bioengineers from University of California, San Diego are developing new regenerative therapies for heart disease that could influence the way in which regenerative therapies for cardiovascular and other diseases are treated in the future.
Silicon-based technology cuts testing time from 6 hours to 45 minutes.
Unstable structural elements of the heart muscle lead to heart failure / Heidelberg cardiologists publish in Nature Medicine.
Cardiac rhythm disorders can result from disturbances in cardiac metabolism.
Scientists have successfully grown heart muscle tissue from the stem cells of mice in a new development that could one day lead to revolutionary treatment of heart damage.
By mimicking the way embryonic stem cells develop into heart muscle in a lab, Duke University bioengineers believe they have taken an important first step toward growing a living "heart patch" to repair heart tissue damaged by disease.
University of Washington (UW) researchers have succeeded in engineering human tissue patches free of some problems that have stymied stem-cell repair for damaged hearts.
