Adhesive patch to reduce heart attack damage

Updated : April 21, 2019 02:37 PM IST

Developed by a team of researchers from Brown University, US, Fudan University, China and Soochow University, China, the patch is made from a water-based hydrogel material and can be placed directly on the heart to prevent left ventricular remodelling -- a stretching of the heart muscle. 
A heart attack puts the cardiac muscle at a risk of stretching out that can reduce the functioning of the heart's main pumping chamber.
