Further study details as provided by Asklepios proresearch:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of the effect of a direct intramyocardial injection of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMNC) on heart function (LVEF). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of th eexplanatory power of echocardiography, endocardial left ventricular electromechanical mapping (LVEMM) with NOGA and cardiac MRI as an endpoint for myocardial regeneration. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Collection of first evidence on the best type and time points for the determination of myocardial regeneration by NOGA and other parameters. [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2009
