Doctors from Shanghai No.10 People’s Hospital are developing a cutting-edge technology that uses stem cell transplants to treat heart attack patients.

After accurate evaluation, stem cells can be injected into damaged heart muscles.

So far 25 patients have received the pioneering therapy and most reported good results, the hospital said.

In addition to developing the new technology, the hospital has also developed artificial intelligence (AI) and wearable equipment to give timely alerts for heart diseases through accurate monitoring and evaluation. 

So far, the system can achieve 90 percent accuracy in reporting acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, one type of typical myocardial infarction due to the blockage of blood flow.

“Such equipment can completely change the treatment of heart problems to allow doctors earlier invention in the prevention and control of heart damage and complications,” Dr Xu Yawei from Shanghai No.10 People’s Hospital said.
