Objectives: It has been demonstrated that intracoronary stem cell transplantation may have beneficial effects on left ventricular function and perfusion both in patients with acute and chronic ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICMP). We evaluated the safety and feasibility of intracoronary autologous bone marrow-derived mononuclear stem cell (MSC) implantation in patients with ICMP.
