Heart Failure Treatment

How do stem cells allow regenerative mechanisms to thrive?

Heart Failure is a progressive chronic health condition in which the heart doesn't function the way it should. It can become a debilitating condition where it can stop working and ultimately cause the death of the patient. Usually this condition affects men and women worldwide from ages of 40 years old to 80 years old. Now a days there is treatment that can help control the symptoms and the progression of the disease and patients can live a normal life. Symptoms:

Heart failure can be caused by many factors including:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Constant Cough and or wheezing
  • Retention of body liquids
  • Loss of appetite
  • Elevated heart rate
  • State of confusion

Most patients that suffer from this condition have had a pre existing heart condition. The most common conditions that can lead to heart failure are:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • High blood pressure
  • History of heart attack

Stem cells have the ability to increase the heart’s ejection fraction in certain cases, mesenchymal stem cells can migrate to the damaged tissue in the heart when they are applied intravenously, helping the cell to regain its function by integrating into the myocardial tissue. Another way that they improve the function of the heart is by creating new blood vessels where in the case of heart failure, some vessels are occluded by blood clots and do not function as so. When the stem cells arrive to those areas, they recruit the necessary factors to create the vessels needed, improving the circulation of the organ and therefore can regain its function.

Application type:

Intravenous application of mesenchymal stem cells Mesenchymal stem cells have immunomodulatory properties that may down regulate an inflammatory response and improve the environment for the natural healing components of the body to work allowing the pro-regenerative mechanisms to thrive. We do not offer a cure or final solution to your problem, however we may improve your symptoms and your quality of life. The amount of stem cells depend on the patient’s weight and height, it is usually around 90 million.


After the medical team evaluates your studies (EKG and/or ECG) they can determine if you qualify for an intravenous application.
