Dilated cardiomyopathy - cardiovascular disease, leading to disability in the absence of timely and effective treatment. In the course of disease progression is stretched heart chambers - the atria and ventricles. Disorders of the heart muscle seen in a significant decrease in cardiac ejection fraction, cardiac contractility, progressive heart failure. Patients with dilated cardiomyopathy complained of persistent swelling (especially of the lower extremities), inability to sleep lying down, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, weight gain.
When the diagnosis of cardiomyopathy, an increase in the size of the heart chambers, low left ventricular ejection fraction (below 45%), the sound muffled heart sounds. There is obliteration (blockage) of blood vessels. Characterized by enlargement of the liver. Diagnosis is by ECG, echocardiography, X-rays, biopsies and other investigations. According to medical statistics, men are more prone to dilated cardiomyopathy - 6 cases of five male patients and 1 female.
Dilated cardiomyopathy can be treated by alternative methods. Drug treatment uses beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, cardiac glycosides. The use of drugs aimed at fighting heart failure and improved quality of life for patients receiving continuous medication.
Surgical treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy heart wrapping operation applies an elastic framework for the normalization of the size of the artificial cells and slow the progression of chronic heart failure. To improve the performance of the left ventricle of the heart set the micro-pump. Surgical intervention stimulates the heart muscle.
Heart transplantation is performed in the most severe cases of heart muscle damage and failure of medical or surgical treatment. Heart transplantation involves a long period of patient preparation for surgery and subsequent rehabilitation serious. A limited number of donor organs and the high cost of transplantation reduces the range of application of this technique. In all cases, the risk of rejection of transplanted organ.
Stem cell therapy eliminates dilated cardiomyopathy without surgery - used the patient's own stem cells. The method practiced by the Moscow stem cell clinic, is unique: normalized size of the heart chambers, increased rate of left ventricular ejection fraction, a diagnosis of "dilated cardiomyopathy" is removed.
Treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy with stem cells
Own stem cells - a natural source of regenerative processes of organs and tissues. That stem cells to regenerate (update) of all cell populations in the human body. The use of stem cells is effective in treating most cases of dilated cardiomyopathy. Maximum efficiency is achieved by the use of cellular technology with the rapid start of treatment - within one week after diagnosis. Cell therapy yields results unattainable by other methods, even in the treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy, diagnosed a year, three, five or more years ago.
Treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy in our clinic is based on years of research in the field of cell technology and decades of successful clinical application of stem cells. Thousands of patients have got rid of the Clinic of cardiomyopathy and heart failure with autologous stem cells.
The mechanism of stem cell therapy is as follows. The patient's medical history, or send negotiates full-time consultation with a physician clinic. Each case is considered on a consultation, where a decision is made about the feasibility of using stem cell therapy. For the treatment of biological material is extracted and the patient is allocated 10,000 maximum viable stem cells. Cultivation (growing) isolated stem cells are 35 - 55 days, until the cell population of 200 million cells. Part of the population of differentiated kardiomioblasty - become heart muscle cells.
Transplantation (introduction) stem cells are the patient twice, at intervals of 6 months. Stem cell transplantation - outpatient procedure, passing 40 minutes, under the supervision of a physician clinic. Cell population into the bloodstream and enters the region of the heart muscle. Stem cells are attached to the healthy tissue of the heart and replace the damaged cell disease. Regeneration of the heart muscle occurs within 3 - 9 months. Cell renewal of the heart muscle normalizes the size of the heart chambers, the thickness of its walls. Rate increases the fraction of cardiac output (up to the standards: 5.6 l / min. In men and 4.9 l / min. In women). Functionally, a wealthy heart muscle - a natural result of the treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy.
Stem cells not only restores the heart, but also enable it to deliver blood, oxygen and nutrients. Weak and damaged vessels updated: removed obliteration (atherosclerotic plaque, blood clots), increased vascular permeability, and gaps. The unprecedented achievement of cell therapy - building new networks of collateral vessels that bypass the region of complete obliteration and provide a full blood flow to the heart muscle.
Cell therapy is unique comprehensive update of the body: specifically treating dilated cardiomyopathy, stem cells restore all the internal organs. Normalized size of the liver. Restores blood flow and fluids from the liver, lungs and kidneys. All authorities restore proper function relationships.
Dozens of patients in our clinic after treatment with stem cells was examined, the results of which indicate the absence of cardiomyopathy. Commission to confirm the disability during the regular inspections supersede previously assigned to disability. Treatment of dilated cardiomyopathy with stem cells - which has no analogues restore the independent work of the heart and return to active life.
