Multimodality infarct identification for optimal image-guided intramyocardial cell injections

Background Intramyocardial cell injections in the context of cardiac regenerative therapy can currently be performed using electromechanical mapping (EMM) provided by the NOGA®XP catheter injection system. The gold standard technique to determine infarct size and location, however, is late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (LGE-MRI). In this article we describe a...

Three dimensional fusion of electromechanical mapping and magnetic resonance imaging for real-time navigation of intramyocardial cell injections in a porcine model of chronic myocardial infarction

For cardiac regenerative therapy intramyocardial catheter guided cell transplantations are targeted to the infarct border zone (IBZ) i.e. the closest region of viable myocardium in the vicinity of the infarct area. For optimal therapeutic effect this area should be accurately identified. However late gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (LGE-MRI) is the gold standard...

Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cells Show More Benefit on Systolic Function Compared to Bone Marrow Mononuclear Cells in a Porcine Model of Chronic Myocardial Infarction

Cardiac cell therapy is a strategy to treat patients with chronic myocardial infarction (MI). No consensus exists regarding the optimal cell type. First, a comparison between autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BMMNC) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) on therapeutic efficacy after MI was performed. Next, the effect of repetitive, NOGA-guided transendocardial...
