Heart Attack

A heart attack or myocardial infarction as it is known in medical circles will cause the death of a few muscle cells in the heart. Others will start suffering from a decrease in blood flow which will ultimately cause their death if the blood flow is not restored to normalcy. The aim of JMC stem cell therapy is to help these cells recover their functionalities by restoration of the blood flow. It will also help the damaged tissues regenerate.

JMC stem cell therapy makes use of the stem cells that are derived from the adipose tissue of the patient. This eliminates the risks of rejection and associated complications. The PRECISE clinical trial has been used as the inspiration behind this treatment. As per the results of that clinical trial, improvements were stronger in patients that were treated with their own stem cells.

Introduction to Myocardial Infarction

The medical term for a heart attack is myocardial infarction. Myocardial infractions are caused when the blood flow to the heart is suddenly stopped. This usually occurs due to blockages present in the arteries. The blockages can be caused either by blood clots or the buildup of plaque.

The muscle cells in the heart being to die if the blood flow is not resorted quickly as they do not have any access to oxygen. The lack of oxygen can cause the affected areas to die out and become damaged. This will result in the formation of an infarction which is a wound filled with scar tissue. The damage can extend to other areas of the heart that are suffering from limited availability of oxygenated blood. In short, myocardial infarction results in the death of muscle cells.

The Signs of Myocardial Infarction

During the onset of myocardial infarction, patients generally feel a sudden pain that extends from the chest. The pain may extend towards the neck or down one of the arms. Some heart attacks tend to manifest themselves in a silent manner. This means, the patient will not be exhibiting any symptoms or warning signs of a heart attack but still suffer from one. Some common symptoms of myocardial infarction are given below.

It is important to get tests performed after a heart attack to find out the extent of the damage caused to the heart muscles. Further damage can be prevented by treatments or lifestyle modifications.

Using Stem Cell Therapy to Treat Heart Attack

As a result of a heart attack, the muscles and tissues in the heart die or their functionality is severely limited. Various conditions such as angina and progressive coronary artery disease can develop after a heart attack.

JMC stem cell therapy can help reduce the occurrence of these conditions. Patients of a heart attack can noticed some improvements to their overall health after going through this therapy.
