Myocardial Regeneration with Skeletal Muscle Satellite Cells
Heart failure, arising from multiple etiologies, results in extensive myocardial damage as dying myocytes are replaced by hyperplasia of non-contractile connective tissue. Loss of contractile function leads to a reduction in pumping capacity of the heart, and initiates a cascade of systemic compensatory actions which ultimately exacerbate and extend myocardial destruction.
