Perspective Cardiac Stem Cell Therapy and the Promise of Heart Regeneration Jessica C. Garbern1 and Richard T. Lee2,* 1Department of Medicine, Boston Children’s Hospital, Boston, MA 02115, USA Stem Cell Institute, the Brigham Regenerative Medicine Center and the Cardiovascular Division, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA *Correspondence: email@example.com http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.stem.2013.05.008 2Harvard Stem cell therapy for cardiac disease is an exciting but highly controversial research area. Strategies such as cell transplantation and reprogramming have demonstrated both intriguing and sobering results. Yet as clinical trials proceed, our incomplete understanding of stem cell behavior is made evident by numerous unresolved matters, such as the mechanisms of cardiomyocyte turnover or the optimal therapeutic strategies to achieve clinical efﬁcacy. In this Perspective, we consider how cardiac stem cell biology has led us into clinical trials, and we suggest that achieving true cardiac regeneration in patients may ultimately require resolution of critical controversies in experimental cardiac regeneration. Introduction The race is on: throughout the world, basic and clinical investigators want to be the ﬁrst to identify new approaches to regenerate cardiac tissue and to prove the effects of these therapies in patients with heart disease. Despite substantial progress in treating many types of heart disease, the worldwide heart failure burden will remain enormous through this century. The potential of stem cells and the scope of the heart failure problem have fueled a stampede to be the ﬁrst to achieve human heart regeneration. Cell transplantation approaches are attractive given their...

Mihalik, CAT(C), ATC, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Sports Medicine Research Laboratory, CB #8700, Fetzer Gymnasium South Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27599. Address e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Objective: To present the case of a 17-year-old male soccer goalkeeper who sustained maxillofacial fractures and dental trauma after being struck in the face by an opponent’s knee. Background: Because of the nature of the sport and a lack of protective headgear, soccer players are at risk for sustaining maxillofacial trauma. Facial injuries can complicate the routine management of on-ﬁeld medical emergencies often encountered by certiﬁed athletic trainers. The appropriate management of maxillofacial trauma on the playing ﬁeld may help to reduce both the immediate and long-term morbidity and mortality associated with these injuries. Differential Diagnosis: Lacerated superior labial artery, lacerated upper lip, dental fractures, maxillofacial fractures, orbital blowout fracture, closed head injury, cervical spine injury, cerebrovascular accident. Treatment: The athlete received immediate on-ﬁeld medical care and was subsequently transported to the hospital, where diagnostic testing was performed and further treatment was provided. Hospital inpatient management included dental and plastic surgery. After discharge from the hospital, the athlete...
