Transplantation of human embryonic stem cell–derived cardiomyocytes (hESC-CMs) enhances cardiac function in macaque monkeys with large myocardial infarction. MRI study showed improvement in left ventricular contractile function at one and three months after hESC-CM transplantation and formation of large viable grafts in the infarct area.

New method for 3D-LGE imaging of myocardial scar is developed. The 3D True Polarity Recovery with Independent Phase Estimation Using Multi-layer Stacks Based Region-Growing (3D-TRIPS) technique allows shortening imaging time two fold in comparison with the standard PSIR method by direct reconstruction of 3D phase sensitive images without need for a separate reference scan. The manuscript is published in Magnetic Resonance Materials in Physics, Biology and Medicine (https://doi.org/10.1007/s10334-017-0666-4)
