Myocardial infarction is a disease characterized by necrosis of the heart muscle due to partial or complete closure of the lumen of the coronary artery with an atherosclerotic plaque.
Myocardial infarction
Today, cardiovascular diseases occupy a leading position throughout the world. Their most terrible complication is myocardial infarction.

Myocardial infarction is a disease characterized by necrosis of the heart muscle due to partial or complete closure of the lumen of the coronary artery with an atherosclerotic plaque. A month later, in the area of ​​necrosis, scar connective tissue begins to form, which violates the contractility of the walls of the myocardium. Over time, this can lead to symptoms of heart failure:, edema of the lower extremities, as well as the development of such a terrible complication as cardiac arrhythmia.

Causes of myocardial infarction:

atherosclerosis of the coronary arteries (thrombosis, obturation by a plaque) – 93–98% of cases;
embolization of the coronary artery (thrombosis with coagulopathy, fat embolism, etc.);
spasm of the coronary arteries.

Risk factors:

bad habits (smoking, alcohol abuse);
environmental pollution (exhaust gases, harmful impurities in the workplace);
obesity;
chronic diseases (diabetes).
According to statistics, men suffer from myocardial infarction more often than women.

Stem cell assistance:

Help with myocardial infarction using stem cells is based on the replacement of damaged heart tissue. Stem cells are transformed into heart cells – cardiomyocytes. The latter begin to form healthy tissue that replaces the scar, that is, stem cells are involved in the regeneration process.

After applying the medical services of regenerative therapy, the general well-being and quality of life of the patient are improved. The contractile ability of the heart muscle, which was lost earlier, increases, and the metabolic processes are normalized. Stem cells are also involved in angiogenesis, that is, they form new vessels, which leads to improved blood supply and, consequently, better oxygen supply to the heart.

This service is successfully used in the Pokrovsky stem cell bank. Here you can get a full range of medical services, including examinations and consultations with a cardiologist. The stem cell infusion procedure is safe and painless, it only takes 40 minutes; after it you can go home by yourself.
