Stem cells are capable to repair the damaged areas of the heart and initiate a cascade of biological events which both culminate in healing of the heart muscle. They are also capable to replace countless cells of the body and heart tissue. The stem cells repairs the body as it replaces the cells plagued with disease and eventually regenerate new cells. This suppresses the macrophage response of the immune system response that submerges the decayed heart cells. Qualified and experienced professionals practicing stem cell treatment inject intravenous and intramuscular injections to the patient over the course of a few days to completely cure the ailment.

The embryonic stem cells and mature cells both are manipulated back to a stem cell state can be harnessed to create new heart cells. As a matter of fact, the heart cells those are made with stem cells are similar to that of an infant, rather than adult heart cells. Hence, the new heart cells must mature and be capable of surviving within the constantly beating environment of the heart to function properly in adult hearts.
