CHF and Cardiomyopathy
As a leading cause of death in the U.S., congestive heart failure (CHF) has been the focus of many studies. It is commonly associated with cardiomyopathy, which is the weakening of the heart muscle. This is frequently caused by coronary vessel disease, but other causes like a viral infection or alcohol consumption could also be the culprit. The heart loses its ability to pump blood efficiently.
Those who suffer from CHF and cardiomyopathy can benefit from cell deployment. Cells that were lost to cardiac ischemia when the blood flow lessened can potentially be replaced by stem cells. Stem cells from varying sources, including fetal and hemopoietic, as well as our own favorite adipose-derived (fat-derived) mesenchymal stem cells, have been shown by national and international research to play an important role in this regeneration. Clinical trials using adult mesenchymal stem cells to address CHF and cardiomyopathy have given positive results. Many of the stem cells injected into any vein have been shown to find their way into the coronary circulation.
Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center Investigations
We are currently investigating the effects of stromal vascular fraction (SVF) of adipose tissue on CHF. SVF is a suspension of mesenchymal stem cells, rich in growth factors and cytokines, which may appear to be balsamic in healing. Our cardiovascular surgeon employs a protocol that incorporates intravenous deployment, which is performed under local anesthesia during an outpatient visit. The entire procedure takes approximately three hours.
