New Stick-On Heart Patch Can Save More Lives after a Heart Attack
Researchers from Imperial College London, UK, together with The University of New South Wales Faculty of Science in Australia, developed a stick-on heart patch that can be applied to the heart to improve the conduction of electrical impulses. This patch can lead to fewer complications in those who survived a heart attack.
This patch is made of flexible polymer and can serve during the whole life of a human. It is created to limit cardiac arrhythmia that occurs after a heart attack.
Damia Mawad, the co-lead researcher from The University of New South Wales, says: “We envisage heart attack patients eventually having patches attached as a bridge between the healthy and the scar tissue, to prevent cardiac arrhythmia.”
