Medical breakthrough raises hopes for heart attack patients

heartache-1846050_1920 (1)

Thousands of lives a year could be saved in the UK after a medical breakthrough raised hopes of an effective treatment for heart attack patients within five years.

Scientists have spent years testing out different ways to mend the damage through heart cell transplants, with little success.

Now, researchers at Kings College have developed a new technique that shows huge promise in regenerating the crucial cardiac muscle cells that are destroyed during a heart attack – largely healing debilitating scars.

The British Heart Foundation, which part-funded the research, strongly welcomed the findings.

“A treatment that helps the heart repair itself after a heart attack is the holy grail for cardiologists,” said Ajay Shah, the foundation’s chairman of cardiology.
