Presentation Type: General Sessions
The study of adult stem cells and their role in treating cardiovascular disease is quickly becoming an acceptable mode of treatment. The challenge remains to identify the very best types of stem cells, refine our delivery techniques, and establish the most effective doses of stem cells. Bone marrow-derived stem cells have been used in recent attempts at myocardial regeneration and angiogenesis. Expert panelists will address current basic and translational research, how to educate your patients on this controversial therapy, and regenerative medicine’s role in the future of PH treatment.
