Mesenchymal Stem Cells can Reverse Heart Damage

If you have just had a heart attack or you know someone who did, you must know the damage it can cause the heart.  Sure the wound in the heart will heal after a few weeks but it will leave a scar.  This will lessen the heart's ability to pump blood, making the organ weak.

However, with the help of mesenchymal stem cells, the damage from the attack may soon be reversed.  Doctors and scientists are working together to make this possible in the near future.  It has already been tested and according to patients who had the stem cell therapy, it works not only to manage heart damage but to repair the damage as well.
