Due to the vital importance of the heart in the proper functioning of the body, people do their best to keep this organ healthy. However, in spite of the best efforts, the heart can begin to suffer from various medical conditions such as Angina.
Angina is characteristic by chest pain which occurs when the heart is unable to receive sufficient amounts of oxygen through blood. Angina can be considered to be a symptom rather than a disease. Be that as it may, it is still treated as a condition as it is rather prevalent among patients suffering from issues of the heart.
Symptoms of angina can be experienced by patients if they have blocked arteries. A blocked artery will not be able to supply an ample amount of blood filled with oxygen. In most cases, such patients also suffer from another heart condition known as Coronary Artery Disease.
Patients who have already suffered from a heart attack can manifest various kinds of angina. After all, a section of the heart may not be receiving enough blood to perform at an optimum level due to the effects of the myocardial infarction.
The most common symptom of this condition is discomfort or pain in the chest that can last up to fifteen minutes. Some patients have reported that the pain feels similar to heartburn or indigestion. However, there are other symptoms often associated with this condition. They are given below.
An angina attack is the manifestation of one or more of the symptoms. Moreover, there two major types of angina.
Stable Angina: It is also known as chronic angina. These attacks generally follow certain patterns. They occur when the heart is made to overwork. Some situations include exercise or heavy exertion. Stable angina can usually be relieved through short rests or medication.
Unstable Angina: Unstable angina does not follow any set pattern. As such, it is difficult to predict an angina attack. It can even attack when the patient is taking rest. At the same time, unstable angina can be a sign of severe heart conditions such as impending heart attacks.
Stem Cell Therapy and Angina
JMC stem cell therapy can help in getting the patients of angina find relief from its symptoms. First, special stem cells are derived from the adipose tissue of the body of the patient. Known as mesenchymal stem cells, these cells have the ability to stimulate the healing mechanisms of the body. These MSCs are also capable of incredible regeneration. After extraction of the cells from the tissues, they are injected back into the patient’s body directly to the affected areas of the heart.
The results of clinical trials show that the treatment is capable of improving the symptoms of the patients. Some of the benefits of this treatment are given below.
