Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • The technique tracks the diffusion of water throughout the myocardium (the heart's muscular wall comprising interconnected sheets of muscle cells called myocytes).

    Dr. Wes

  • But as we age, the balance of these cells in our hearts shift, and often the fibroblasts become more prevalent than the myocytes.

  • When we are in good health the ratio of myocytes to fibroblasts is about 70/30.

  • The adult heart contains cardiac stem cells (CSCs) that are self-renewing, clonogenic (able to produce identical daughter cells), and multipotent-ie, they differentiate into all three major cardiac lineages (myocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells, and endothelial cells). News

  • Due to the way the myocytes are organized, the movement of water is restricted, so tracking the location of water molecules can reveal valuable information about the structure of the heart in a non-invasive way.

    Dr. Wes

  • Cell therapy approaches include attempts to reinitiate cardiomyocyte proliferation in the adult, conversion of fibroblasts to contractile myocytes, conversion of bone marrow stem cells into cardiomyocytes, and transplantation of myocytes or other cells into injured myocardium.

  • WASHINGTON - For the first time, Spanish researchers have used adult cells extracted from human heart tissue to turn stem cells from adipose tissue into cardiac myocytes.
