The study concluded that water-pipe smoke induces structural changes in the heart ventricle tissues, causing a negative impact on the capacity of the cardiac muscle for pumping blood and may lead to heart attack due to accumulation of free radicals and tissue inflammation.
Six months post-stem cell injection, patients had improved function at the target study site of the left heart ventricle.
He suffered from idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (IHSS), a genetic condition in which there is a thickening of the heart ventricle.
Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack, MI) leads to progressive changes of heart ventricle size, shape and function.
Ischemic or degenerative conditions lead to the enlargement of the heart ventricle, causing the mitral valve annulus to distort and enlarge, which in turn renders the valve incompetent, allowing blood to reverse and leak back through the valve, clinically referred to as Mitral Valve Regurgitation.

Unlike a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), which helps the failing left ventricle, the Total Artificial Heart replaces both the left and right heart ventricles which are responsible for pumping blood.
