Heart Regeneration Open Access Articles

Regeneration of infarcted cardiac muscle persisted a dream of current medicine despite of comprehensive research on somatic cell and gene therapy. Both technologies haven't gained broad clinical use thanks to limited clinical results and significant side-effects including tumor formation. Shockwave therapy induces tissue regeneration in infarcted cardiac muscle and thereby significantly improves heart function (left ventricular ejection fraction). Repercussions at low-energy levels are in wide-ranging medical use for tissue regeneration in added indications. It is therefore proven to be safe in millions of patients over more than 30 years. This discriminates shockwave therapy evidently from all the further regenerative therapy methods.
