Cell-based cardiac regeneration has been the focus of acquired, adult heart disease for many years. However, congenital heart disease with severe structural abnormalities may also be reasonable targets for cell-based therapies. Interestingly, the pediatric heart is naturally growing and may be the most amendable to regenerative strategies. Therefore, identifying autologous cells (cells from the patient's own body) would be important to initiate these studies.
This study aims to validate the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of autologous cells for the purpose of cardiac repair of congenital heart disease. Cells will be isolated from the cord blood to help us determine the feasibility of collection, processing, and storage of these samples at the time of birth of infants with prenatal diagnosis of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. This study may be useful for the development of pre-clinical and clinical studies aimed at the long-term goal of repairing damaged heart muscle.

Umbilical Cord Blood Collection
Umbilical Cord Blood is drawn from the umbilical cord of newborn babies diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, before placental detachment. Cord blood is packaged in a Credo Cube, and sent at a temperate state to the manufacturer immediately after draw. At least 65 mL of cord blood is needed to produce a stem cell product during manufacturing. Once processed, the patient's autologous cord blood stem cells will be frozen for their potential future use in a clinical trial.
Other: Collection of umbilical cord blood
Cord blood will be processed in the temperate state it was collected to produce a pure, stem cell product identifiable to patients with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, and will be stored at a frozen state for their potential, future use in a clinical trial.
- Percent of samples contaminated [ Time Frame: 14 days after collection ]
- Percent of cells that are viable following post thaw analysis [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
