Postinfarction cardiac insufficiency is an important epidemiological problem. Current medical treatment, al-though efficient in preventing ventricular remodeling, is not able to restore the function of necrotic myocar-dium.

Both cell populations injected into myocardium differentiate to the cardiomyocytes and take over their function.
