Cardiovascular Disease Stem Cell Treatment

Right now, there aren’t any good treatments for serious heart failure. A lot of people with this condition see their quality of life get much worse. Heart disease causes about 32% of deaths worldwide and is becoming more common. For those with really bad heart failure, almost 90% die within a year. The only option for most of these patients is a heart transplant. However, 95% of people waiting for a transplant die before they get one. Even if you do get a transplant, there are many risks involved, like bleeding. You’ll also have to take strong medicines to stop your body from attacking the new heart, which can cause serious side effects. There’s also a chance that the new heart won’t work well enough to keep your blood flowing.

Our focus is on treating a type of heart disease where the heart doesn’t get enough blood and oxygen. It’s also called coronary heart disease or coronary artery disease and happens when the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle get narrow.

The heart doesn’t naturally heal itself very well in people. When it gets seriously hurt, it often can’t fix the damage, which can lead to heart failure. A heart attack can cause a huge loss of heart muscle cells that won’t grow back. After a heart attack, a person can lose up to 1 billion of these cells.

There are special stem cells called mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) that can grow into different types of cells, like nerve and heart muscle cells. These MSCs are good at finding and helping heal injured tissue. They’ve been tested in clinical trials and don’t have any ethical issues. The MSCs are put into the body with a small tube called a catheter during a procedure at the hospital. This lets the MSCs go right to the damaged tissue to help it heal faster.

We have successfully treated over 525 patients with ischemic heart disease. These are the primary conditions we address:     

  • Angina
  • Left ventricular hypertrophy
  • Myocardial infarction
  • Hypertension
  • Heart failure    
  • Stroke  
  • Aortic stiffness
  • Endothelial dysfunction.

The treatment process is simple and starts with a thorough evaluation of your cardiovascular system by our specialized team.  Generally, the whole treatment process can be completed in 5 days.

Day 1

  • Patient goes for cardiac screening
    We need to make sure that the patient is a candidate for this treatment

Day 2

  • Patient is admitted to the hospital
  • Catheter injection of cells in the hospital
  • Patient spends the night in ICU

Day 3 & 4

  • Patient will stay in the hospital if needed

Day 5

  • Follow-up with Physician

Cardiac Study Results for Stem Cells

  • Mortality – 76% reduction in all-cause mortality at 4 years for patients with end-stage cardiomyopathy
  • Hospitalization – 80% reduction in hospitalizations due to congestive heart failure

In addition to a reduced risk of mortality and hospitalization, you can expect the following benefits after receiving treatment:

  • Improved quality of life
  • Enhanced functionality
  • Decreased long-term healthcare costs
  • Lengthened life span

Moreover, many patients have noticed positive side effects after the treatment, such as:

  • Improved cognitive function
  • Reduced arthritic symptoms
  • Increased energy levels
  • Enhanced physical capacity
  • Growth of dark hair in bald spots
  • Visual improvements
  • Improved neurological symptoms
