“The initial concept was to use these stem and regenerative cells from fat that were known to reduce inflammation and improve blood supply in patients who had heart attacks. It was thought that if we injected these cells into the coronary artery that had been blocked, we would salvage more muscle and prevent instability of the tissue that led to serious rhythm abnormalities and to congestive heart failure.”
