Experts at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in US say that damage caused by a heart attack has been healed using stem cells gathered from the patient’s own heart. The amount of scar tissue was halved in the small safety trial reported in the Lancet medical journal. According to the authors, there was also an “unprecedented” increase in new heart muscle. A heart attack happens wh...
