Nanowires Offer Real-Time Monitoring and Control of Heart Tissue

A key treatment for heart disease is a procedure known as myocardial resection, wherein a section of diseased or damaged heart tissue is removed. Researchers have been trying to figure out the best way to fill the void where the tissue has been removed. There has been research into creating 3-D scaffolds made from the patient’s own skin cells—structures on which the heart muscle can be regenerated. However, this approach doesn’t provide for a way to continuously monitor and control the development of these tissue patches. Now, researchers out of Harvard University, led by Charles Lieber , may have found a way to create tissue scaffolds that can be controlled and monitored. The Harvard researchers added this capability by mimicking 3-D nanoelectronic arrays; the results show a way towards real-time mapping and control of electrophysiology in tissues. In research described i...
