How Stem Cell Heart Failure Therapy Can Help Heart Patients
For mending Damaged Heart Tissue, there are three specific heart cell types that are the focus of stem cell heart failure therapies and intervention at The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) in Florida. Our bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for heart conditions are an innovative therapy practiced in the United States that is safe and effective.*
Like our many other therapies for conditions such as Peripheral Neuropathy or Diabetes, our stem cell heart failure therapy is safe and individualized for each patient. The human heart is actually made up of several types of cells, but the three critical ones we focus on during stem cell therapy for heart failure are:
- Cardiomyocytes. These are the beating muscle cells that cause the heart to constrict where blood comes out of your heart and into the vessels and through the rest of the body.
- Cardiac pacemaker cells. These are the heart cells that send and receive the important electrical signals that will keep your heart beating and maintain the right rhythm.
- Endothelial cells. These are the heart cells that line the blood vessels and assist with the delivery of oxygen to the other cells in the heart chambers.
When the heart cells begin to fail, it can cause a variety of problems that must be addressed. Today, the medical community is turning more and more toward stem cell heart failure therapies.
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death worldwide in men, women, and children, claiming more than 17 million lives each year. The effects of congestive heart failure and acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) have historically presented great challenges in conventional heart failure therapy for doctors and researchers alike.
Until now, despite all of the past advances in heart failure therapy and management, heart disease has been a very progressive disease. Once heart cells are damaged, they cannot sufficiently replace themselves without stem cell therapy for heart failure. This is why the news of advanced therapy with stem cells is spreading quickly and taking the medical community by storm.
Is Stem Cell Heart Failure Therapy Done for Congestive Heart Failure as Well?
Whether it’s therapy for congestive heart failure or other heart conditions, stem cell therapy for heart failure may be able to help. Heart failure is the common term used to describe the medical condition where the heart’s blood-pumping action performs at a weaker level and rate than normal. How much weaker varies widely from person to person, but it is enough to cause problems and gets worse and worse over time. Blood circulates more slowly, the pressure within the heart itself increases, and there are not enough oxygen and nutrients in the blood. To compensate, the chambers of the heart stretch to bring in more blood, the heart muscle works harder and begins to weaken from stress, and the vessels and chambers of the heart can become stiff and even start to leak. Eventually, the kidneys weaken and the body retains water that can begin to puddle in the hands, feet, arms, legs, and around the lungs and the heart. This general clinical picture is called congestive heart failure.
This is a serious issue that must be addressed through heart failure therapy, and today many specialists specifically recommend stem cell therapy for congestive heart failure.
Therapy for CHF is one of the reasons why patients at NSI Stem Cell seek us out for our advanced stem cell therapy for congestive heart failure.
What Causes Heart Failure and When Would I Need Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Failure?
Many conditions can lead to congestive heart failure and cause an individual to need stem cell heart failure therapy. Among the most common are:
- Heart attacks, especially those associated with coronary artery disease can contribute to heart failure. A blockage in a coronary artery blocks blood flow and stresses the heart to the point of a heart attack.
- Alcohol and drug abuse and excessive drinking and smoking can stress out the body, especially the heart muscles. This can damage the heart, cause heart failure, and lead to the need for heart failure therapies.
- A variety of other chronic and acute diseases and conditions can contribute to heart disease and heart failure, especially those that overwork the heart over time; the most damaging include heart defects, muscular and nerve issues, thyroid disease, kidney failure, and high blood pressure.
Other conditions can also combine to make a person more susceptible to heart failure and in need of heart failure therapy.
How Does Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Failure Address Congestive Heart Failure?
Ultimately, the goal of stem cell heart failure therapy is to stop the progression of the disease and repair the damage already done, thus restoring the quality of life for the individual. This is what NSI Stem Cell Center focuses on when a patient comes to us with health struggles related to heart failure.

Stem cells are pure potential. In the clinic, they are coaxed into differentiating into the cell types needed in stem cell therapy for heart failure and injected back into the patient. Once there, they travel to the heart areas in need of repair and regeneration, where they multiply as they get to work. Since these are the patient’s own adult stem cells, there is no risk of rejection.
Each stem cell heart failure therapy is done on an outpatient basis in just a matter of hours. There is little to no recovery time needed after stem cell therapy for heart failure.
Lifestyle changes like regular moderate exercise, healthy eating, and quitting smoking are more than a suggestion at NSI. We view these as essential companions to our stem cell therapy for heart failure.

Abstract—Animal and preliminary human studies of adult cell therapy following acute myocardial infarction have shown
an overall improvement of cardiac function. Myocardial and vascular regeneration have been initially proposed as
mechanisms of stem cell action.
