If British researchers are to be believed, days are not so far when organ transplantation will be passe. British researchers have claimed to have developed a new technique to rebuild the severely damaged heart.

The Imperial College researchers have found that stem cell heart surgery can help repair damaged hearts using progenitor cells derived from patients’ own cardiac muscle.

They have discovered a way to extract, grow in the laboratory and then graft on a patient’s own muscle-building cells which then can be used to patch up the heart and increase its pumping power. Moreover, it can increase the quality of life for people who suffer a heart attack.
