Resuscitating Dead Cells and Tissues: Progress in The Adoption of Nanotechnology in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering

Each time an individual suffers a heart attack and survives, unfortunately something happens to the heart permanently: some of the cells that constitute this organ die. Those cells can be: Cardiomyocytes (striated muscle cells found in the heart, derived from cardiac myoblasts); Neurons (in the wall of the heart). These dead tissues give to the heart muscles weakening. Consequently, the …
