Myocardial Tissue Engineering BIOHEART MicroImplants

First Product (under development)

Heart Muscle Regeneration (MYOGENESIS) System (under development) - Autologous immature myoblasts (cultured and processed in Bioheart controlled labs with 17 step proprietary method) injected into damaged myocardium to ATTEMPT TO repopulate, re-vascularize (arteriogenesis), regenerate and improve diastolic and systolic function of treated region. CAUTION: This attempted improvement is yet to be proven in statistically appropriate controlled clinical trials. Cells are injected with 25g bent needle, thorocoscopic needle probe or endovascular needle catheter (7FR) with deflecting tip and dial in needle depth control.

Future Products

Heart Muscle Regeneration (MYOGENESIS) System (under development) - Immature myoblasts transvected with eNOS mixed with bone marrow, stromal cells, Angiopoiten 1 Tie Receptors, L-Arginine, Pyruvate, VEGF/FGF, Fibrinogen Matrix, Endothelial Cells & Fibrin Glue.

These are illustrations of the proposed method of heart muscle regeneration under development deflecting guide catheter with slidable inner needle assembly for delivery of cellular implants into myocardium wall.
