Stem cell 'patches' could help to fix injured hearts
Patching up a failing heart is no easy task, but now, researchers are using a new combination of cells to make grafts of heart tissue. In a new study, they used these grafts to fix failing hearts in guinea pigs. The results might one day allow researchers to engineer heart muscle grafts that could help to heal hearts in human patients with heart failure, the researchers said.
