At this time, several different clinical trails on Adult Stem Cell within cardiac therapy have demonstrated that the treatment slows down, and in some cases even reverse progressive heart deterioration in patients who suffer Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). This is a direct result of Mesenchymal Stem Cells’ ability to heal and replace injured tissue in the heart.
What is coronary artery disease?
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) happens when a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries, which are in charge of supplying oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle. When the arteries finally become blocked, neighboring organs can become damaged as the heart muscle struggles to function normally due to a repressed blood-flow (this is called ischemia).
Compromised heart function can have devastating effects on the entire body. Narrowed arteries in the heart (CAD) gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump blood efficiently, so Coronary artery disease progresses into a condition known as Congestive Heart Failure, where a chronic condition might develop or an acute heart failure can occur.
Coronary artery disease symptoms
When the coronary arteries narrow, they are unable to supply enough oxygen-rich blood to the heart, especially when it’s beating hard. As more plaque builds up and lines the walls of the arteries, blood flow becomes increasingly suppressed and symptoms start to surface.
Normally patients start by feeling chest pain (angina) triggered by physical or emotional stress, manifested as a pressure or tightness in the chest, as if someone were standing on it.
There is also a constant “shortness of breath” and fatigue since the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.
Finally, when plaque builds up inside the artery and eventually completely blocks it a heart attack occurs.
CAD treatment options
When CAD is diagnosed in it’s early stages, it can be managed by incurring in healthier lifestyle changes, such as quit smoking, exercising more and committing to a balanced diet.
On the other hand, various drugs can be used to treat CAD, including Cholesterol-modifying medications, aspirin and beta-blockers, the objective being to prevent further progression of the coronary artery blockages and preventing future heart attacks that could further damage the heart muscle.
However, if this approach proves unsuccessful, a more aggressive treatment is needed and an angioplasty is performed – the doctors threads a thin tube, inserted through a blood vessel in the arm or groin up to the artery where the blockage is presented. The tube contains a small balloon, which is inflated to push plaque outward against the wall of the artery. This widens the artery and restores blood flow.
By-pass surgery – A major surgery where the doctors grafts a the patient’s vein or uses a piece of plastic graft to by-pass the blockage and redirect blood flow around the obstruction.
The problem with said procedures is that many times they act as a temporary fix and it addresses a specific blockage in a specific tract of artery.
What does stem cell therapy do for coronary artery disease?
When they are placed in a low-oxygen environment, Rejuvenare’s stem cells transform to become more vascular in orientation, and they also release various growth factors, which significantly aid in the healing process.
Once the processed stem cells are implanted directly to the heart using a catheter through the carotid artery via Rejuvenare’s proprietary delivery protocols,
As mentioned before, the above treatments offered my mainstream medicine today only serve often as a temporary solution to the problem, and, once patients have exhausted those alternatives, they become labeled as “no-option heart patients”. This means that there is nothing medicine can do to help them in their current state, as some patients may not be qualified to undergo heart transplantation, while others might not be matched with a donor in time.
In the past, exhaustion of these traditional cardiac treatment options meant being labeled as a “no-option” heart patient. Further, some patients may be unable to undergo heart transplantation while others may not be matched with a donor heart in time. Despite the use of current available treatments, these “no-option” patients experience deterioration in their quality of life, and their life expectancy shortens.
Rejuvenare therapy utilizes stem cells obtained from the patient’s own bone marrow. These cells are placed back directly into the patient’s heart via a catheter using Rejuvenare’s proprietary delivery protocols, where they prompt the growth of new blood vessels. This non-invasive procedure can restore normal blood flow to the heart thus greatly improving heart function.
Rejuvenare has had great results with many documented cases for heart procedures utilizing processed stem cells delivered by our proprietary protocols, bringing new hope for coronary artery disease patients.
