Abstract: Cell transplantation is a promising new modality in treating damaged myocardium after myocardial infarction and in preventing postmyocardial infarction LV remodelling. Two strategies are plausible: the first uses adult tissue stem cells to replace the scar tissues and amend the lost myocardium, whilst the second strategy uses embryonic stem cells in an attempt to regenerate myocardium and/or blood vessels. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2006.
