BACKGROUND: This systematic review with meta-analysis sought to determine the efficacy and safety of intramyocardial transplantation of bone marrow stem cells during coronary artery bypass graft surgery on postoperative cardiac functional parameters such as left ventricular ejection fraction and left ventricular end-diastolic volume.
METHODS: Medline/PubMed, Embase, Elsevier, Sciences online database, and Google Scholar literature search were searched. The effect sizes measured were risk ratio for categorical variables and weighted mean difference with 95% confidence interval for calculating differences between mean values of baseline and follow-up cardiac functional parameters. A value of p < 0.1 for Q test, or I(2 )> 50%, indicated significant heterogeneity among studies. The literature search retrieved 2900 studies from screened databases, of which 2866 (98.6%) were excluded and 34 (619 patients) were included for scoping review. The final analysis included 9 studies (335 patients).
RESULTS: Pooled effects estimates of left ventricular ejection fraction and left ventricular end-diastolic volume showed that bone marrow stem cell transplantation had a weighted mean difference of 4.06 (95% confidence interval: 0.41-7.72; p = 0.02) and 7.06 (95% confidence interval: -8.58-22.7; p = 0.3), respectively.
CONCLUSIONS: Intramyocardial transplantation of bone marrow stem cells improves cardiac functional parameters, significantly increasing left ventricular ejection fraction with a nonsignificant reduction in left ventricular end-diastolic volume. Also, this therapeutic method has no life-threatening complications and was therefore found to be an effective and safe method.
