Mayo Clinic – Replacing Pacemakers With Stem Cells

Heart

Mayo Clinic researchers have resynchronized a disrupted heartbeat by using stem cells. Dr. Andre Terzic, a senior author of the study explained, “By harnessing the potential of regenerative medicine – repairing the injured heart, in this case – we will be increasingly able to provide more definitive solutions to our patients”.

Following a heart attack, heart muscle damage may disrupt normal heart conduction, resulting in a condition known as cardiac dyssynchrony.  To address this problem, current therapies rely on pacing devices such as pacemakers.  However, many patients do not always respond favorably to these devices or achieve optimal results. The study provides evidence that stem cell-based intervention may be an effective alternative for synchronizing failing hearts and may replace existing reliance on mechanical device-based resynchronization.
