A new biologic alternative to an electronic pacemaker

University of Houston scientist uses fat stem cells to create a biologic pacemaker for the heart

The electronic pacemaker has been the gold standard for treating abnormal heart rhythms. The small, battery-operated device uses electrodes to deliver a steady wave of electrical shocks to the heart, forcing contraction and allowing the organ to properly pump blood through the body. Now, University of Houston research scientists are one step closer to creating a […]
