Several recent basic research studies have described surgical methods for cardiac repair using tissue cardiomyoplasty. This review summarizes recent advances in cardiac repair using bioengineered tissue from the viewpoint of the cardiac surgeon. We conclude that the results of many basic and preclinical studies indicate that bioengineered tissue can be adapted to conventional surgical techniques. However, no clinical studies have yet proved bioengineered tissue is effective as a treatment for human heart failure. Today's cardiac surgeons can look forward to the advent of new techniques to benefit patients who respond poorly to existing treatment for heart failure.
