Gold Nanofibers May Help Keep Damaged Heart In Rhythm
2013-07-18 09:58:06

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the wake of a heart attack, the heart's tissues sustain irreparable damage. Cells in the heart cannot multiply and the heart muscle contains very few stem cells, meaning the tissue is unable to repair itself. The damaged tissue therefore becomes fibrotic and cannot contract correctly. Looking for new, innovative methods to restore heart function, scientists have been exploring cardiac "patches;" these patches could be transplanted...
