Video: Answer to Curing a Failing Heart May Exist in Body's Own 'Do-It-Yourself' Repair Kit
Date:10/8/2008

of Arizona Heart Institute and Arizona Heart Hospital. "The myoblast cells are derived from a patient's own skeletal muscle tissue thereby reducing risk of rejection. Further, myoblasts can be delivered to the heart muscle in a minimally invasive fashion via a catheter under local anesthesia. Quite literally, a patient may be able to heal their own heart."

Congestive Heart Failure is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough oxygen-rich blood to the body's other organs, often as a result of prior heart attack. As blood flow out of the heart slows, blood returning to the heart through the veins backs up, causing congestion in the tissues. Patients with CHF often experience swelling, fatigue and shortness of breath. It affects over five million Americans today.

Patients with CHF have portions of the heart muscle that are severely damaged, usually due to a heart attack. Unlike other tissues in the body, the human heart does not have the ability to repair itself, weakening the heart muscle's ability to function as it did before the heart attack. Without treatment, the heart may grow weaker, eventually resulting in an irreversible situation. Patients with advanced, severe heart failure that do not respond to any treatment method may be considered for heart transplantation. The hope is that Myoblast Therapy may someday replace heart transplantation as the primary option for patients with severe CHF, giving them a new lease on life.

To date, upwards of 235 CHF patients have been treated worldwide using myoblasts. Myoblast transplantation for congestive heart failure is investigational and not approved commercially in the U.S. To be eligible for the MARVEL research study, a patient must be diagnosed with chronic Class II - IV CHF, stable and on optimal medical therapy for at least 60 days, and between the ages of 18-80. To make an appointment at Arizona Heart Institute, or for more information about the MARVEL research study, please call (602)
