Background: Myocardial infarction (MI) is considered the most important reason for heart failure and cardiac deaths. Despite recent therapeutic modalities, only 30% of patients achieve adequate reperfusion before irreversible damage occurs. The approach to acute MI has changed to focus on trying to achieve what was previously unthinkable: to reconstitute dead myocardium. Objective: To assess the effect of intra-coronary delivery of autologous bone marrow mononuclear cells on left ventricular functions at short term (6 months) and long term (3 years) follow-up periods in patients with acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction with no evidence of reperfusion. Subjects & methods: This study was conducted on 42 patients: divided into active (group I) and control (group II) groups. Bone marrow mononuclear cells were delivered intracoronary in the active patient group. Patients were followed up every 3 months until 3 years by clinical, ECG and echocardiographic monitoring. Results: No significant procedure related complications were encountered. Global systolic functions improved mildly (3.3%) in group I at 6 months but declined to 2.2% at 6 months, and remained so for 3 years. However, no statistically significant difference was detected between groups I and II. No statistically significant improvement in diastolic functions parameters, regional functions, ventriculography parameters or MPI parameters. Subgroup analysis revealed that patients with poorer ventricular ejection fraction (EF) below 45% at baseline had better improvement that those with EF≥45%. Conclusions: Bone marrow derived mononuclear cell delivery intracoronary in patients with acute MI caused mild but consistent improvement in ventricular functions, with no procedure related complications
