Stem Cell Therapy For Mitral Prolapse

Stem Cell Therapy For Mitral Prolapse

The mitral valve is present in the left side of the heart between the upper and lower chambers and it controls the flow of blood between these chambers. When the heart is functioning optimally, the mitral valve becomes completely closed after each heartbeat – thus preventing the blood from flowing back into the upper chamber. However, in people with mitral valve prolapse, one or both leaflets of the mitral valve stretch more than normal or have extra tissue, which causes them to bulge into the left atrium like a parachute – each time the heart contracts. This bulging prevents the

Stem Cell Therapy For Heart Attack

Heart attack, also known as “myocardial infarction” in medical terms, commonly occurs when the blood flow towards the heart stops due to blockage in the arteries. The blockage in the heart arteries is mostly due to the buildup of cholesterol, fat, and other similar substances which combine to form plaque. The plaque starts depositing in the coronary arteries and hinders the smooth flow of blood. In later stages, the plaque starts to rupture or turn into a clot which completely blocks the blood supply to the heart. The interruption in blood flow causes depletion of oxygen and nutrients to the

The Benefits of Allogeneic Mesenchymal Stem Cells for the Treatment of Cardiovascular and Neurodegenerative Disease

Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stromal cells that have the ability to differentiate, or become, a variety of cell types, including bone cells, cartilage cells, fat cells, and muscle cells. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are ideal for treating many kinds of injuries and disease, and can be derived from many different kinds of tissue including; bone marrow, adipose tissue, cord blood and cord tissue. Studies have been conducted using MSC derived from each of the different types of tissue and there is a lot of debate about what type of MSC is best for the treatment of different conditions. Most

12 Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

Approximately 150 million men worldwide struggle with erectile dysfunction, and according the American Urological Association, it affects approximately 1 out of 2 men over the age of 50. Stem cell therapy at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute can help. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities. However, stem cell treatments are legal in Costa

Why Type 2 Diabetes Increases the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Diabetes is sometimes referred to as the “silent killer” because it can progress slowly and without warning. Patients with diabetes have hyperglycemia, or high levels of blood sugar, that damages the blood vessels in the kidneys, heart, eyes and nervous system leading to cardiovascular disease, peripheral arterial disease, kidney failure and blindness.

Unique Risk Factors that Increase the Risk of Stroke in Women

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in women, and stroke kills twice as many women as breast cancer.  Stroke affects more women than men each year and the mortality is much higher for women, so it is important to understand the unique risk factors that increase a woman’s risk of stroke. As part of a special issue of the journal Stroke, investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston reviewed the risk factors for stroke that are specific to women including; hormone levels, hormone therapy, hormone birth control, pregnancy, the age of menarche and the age of menopause.1
