Regenerative Cardiac Synchronization – Satsuki Yamada, M.D., Ph.D.

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, most often by a build-up of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). The interrupted blood flow can damage or destroy part of the heart muscle. Satsuki Yamada, M.D., Ph.D., […]
