Description:Clinicians are now beginning to revascularize cardiac tissue damaged by myocardial infarction with transplanted cells. Though still in the early phases, such revascularization is currently being transformed from a research concept to a clinical tool. Various tissue types and genes are transplanted to improve left ventricular and systolic scar functions, and to prevent further deterioration of ejection fractions. The editors have assembled an expert team of international researchers and clinicians. Handbook of Cardiovascular Cell Transplantation is essential for cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, and trainees who want to learn about the future of cardiovascular medicine.
