Lillehei Heart Institute researchers from the University of Minnesota have found cardiac stem cells believed to give rise to heart cells are not doing so at the pace required to regenerate heart muscle. Within the scope of their findings, the researchers also unlocked the answer to a key question in cardiovascular medicine when they discovered that the cells may help grow new blood vessels.

According to the Lillehei research team, the findings, published today by Nature, could have significant therapeutic implications.
