For heart failure patients, bone marrow cells have been injected into the heart's left ventricle. Other studies have shown promising results in the use of muscle cells taken from other parts of the body (e.g., thigh) and injecting them into damaged areas of the heart. It is believed that such skeletal muscle helps to restore the contractile properties of affected heart muscle, thus improving ejection fraction. However, these treatments are still experimental and have not been approved by the FDA.
