The article discusses a study by van Ramshorst and colleagues on the relevant aspects of bone marrow cell-related therapy for chronic heart dysfunction. It was found that delivery of bone marrow cells is most effective when done through the intercoronary balloon and transplantation procedure. Also, the velocity of wall movement in the chronic infarct increased after bone marrow cell therapy. Moreover, it was found that bone marrow cell therapy is effective in managing non-coronary heart failure.
