Recommendations for Successful Training on Methods of Delivery of Biologics for Cardiac Regeneration. A Report of the International Society for Cardiovascular Translational Research

Academic Article

Abstract

  • The field of myocardial regeneration (angiogenesis and myogenesis) might prove to play an important role in the future management of cardiovascular disease. Stem cells are currently undergoing testing in Phase I and Phase II clinical trials. Methods of delivery will affect the outcome of such therapies, perhaps significantly. This document provides suggested guidance in 4 methods of delivery: endocardial, intracoronary, coronary sinus, and epicardial. © 2010 American College of Cardiology Foundation.
