New Strategies for Myocardial Infarction Treatment

Xiyang Peng, Junwei Zhou, Xiu-Shan Wu

Abstract


Myocardial infarction is due to lasting and serious myocardial ischemic that leads to myocardial necrosis and cardiac remodeling, and can consequently results in heart failure. Traditional treatment for myocardial infarction includes drug therapy, thrombolytic therapy, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), and coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Although these treatments can to some extent relieve the symptom of myocardial ischemia, they fail to repair the necrotic heart tissues. Myocardial regeneration is undoubtedly the best solution to the clinical problems of myocardial infarction treatment. The review briefly illustrated the pros and cons of the traditional treatments of myocardial infarction, and focused on the application of new strategies for myocardial infarction treatment using myocardial regeneration.
