Default why is stem cell technology the best for treating heart diseases.?



many people would choose stem cell technology to treat their heart instead of coronary heart bypass or angioplasty? why is that so. are there any risks involved?

I didn't know it was available,

yep it's because your own stem cells can produce tissue that is your own, so your white blood cells won't reject it

There are risks with everything, less of rejection in this case though.

Stem cells are very important! They are in the beginning stages of life. They can differentiate into any type of cell. They come from babies, like fetuses, for the most part because people are cruel, but you can find them in a grown being too. In adults, stem cells repair damaged tissues and other things. Bone marrow transplants are a form of stem cell usage in order to treat a disease. fMarrow transplants can help to cure lukemia.
But my answer to the question is: I would just go for the bypass, unless I was given ALL the facts about stem cell therapy.
I hope that answers your question!
