The heart attack patch that could repair the muscle without
Scientists have developed a stick-on patch that could one day be used to repair damage to the human heart.
Scars left on hearts after cardiac arrests can lead to irregular heart rhythms.
This is because scar tissue disrupt the electrical impulses that allow a heart to beat in time.
The new patch helps to 'bridge' the electrical impulses correctly across different parts of the heart.
The flexible patch, which has been shown to work in animal models, is long lasting and has the significant advantage that it can be stuck onto the heart without the need for stitches...
