Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
This study consisted of an open-label randomized study design conducted at the Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation Center at University Medical Center Ljubljana in collaboration with the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center and Stanford University.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Patients with acute multi-organ failure or history of haematologic neoplasms were not included.

Reporting Groups
  Description
SC Group 55 patients were randomized to CD34+ cell transplantation (SC group). In the SC group, peripheral CD34+cells were mobilized by G-CSF and collected via apheresis. Patients underwent myocardial scintigraphy and CD34+ cells were injected in the artery supplying the segments with reduced viability
Control Group 55 patients were randomized to standard medical therapy, without stem cell injection.
