Ischemic heart disease occurs when blockages are found in the coronary arteries, causing inadequate blood flow to heart tissue over time. Aspen Regenerative Medicine practices a noninvasive cardiac cell therapy procedure to target affected heart tissue. This is done by injecting adult stem cells retrieved from your own body fat into the heart’s damaged areas. The adult stem cells encourage blood flow again by helping grow new blood vessels.
WHAT IS ISCHEMIA?
Ischemia is a general medical term that refers to any area of the body that has stopped receiving the necessary amount of blood flow. Ceased blood flow deprives the area of oxygen and can cause many different issues. Coronary artery disease can be a factor of restricted blood flow due to narrowed or blocked arteries that keep the heart from receiving the proper amount of oxygen. When the condition reaches this point, it is also known as ischemic heart disease. The condition may lead to heart failure over time.
STEM CELL THERAPY FOR ISCHEMIC HEART DISEASE
The adult stem cell therapy procedure that Dr. Gershon performs is specifically designed to target damaged heart tissue and assist in angiogenesis or the growth and development of new blood vessels. The procedure uses adult stem and regenerative cells found from adipose tissue in your body to restore blood flow to the heart. The effects of stem cell therapy could greatly improve the quality of a patient’s life following the procedure.
The Aspen Regenerative Medicine procedure has been specifically tested and found effective in patients suffering from ischemic heart disease. The patients who have undergone the Aspen Regenerative Medicine stem cell therapy procedure have experienced results such as improved oxygen flow and usage, improved strength, decreased angina, and the general decrease of damaged heart tissue found in the body. Overall, this contributes to more efficient cardiac performance and functionality.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM CARDIAC ISCHEMIA
The symptoms of ischemic heart disease are often subdued and easy to overlook in a general sense. In some cases, patients suffering from cardiac ischemia may only experience symptoms of short periods of exertion or high amounts of stress. Artery blockage can make it more difficult for the heart to receive blood and oxygen during times of need such as exercise or other moments of physical stress. This usually results in chest pains which are known as angina. However, angina can also be seen in the form of chest heaviness, tightness of the chest, shortness of breath, discomfort in the neck or shoulders, or even nausea.
ASPEN REGENERATIVE CELL THERAPY FOR ISCHEMIA HEART DISEASE
Other treatment methods for cardiac ischemia such as medication, stents, and angioplasty are meant to manage symptoms but may not be as effective for all patients.
