There is a way to reduce heart swelling after a heart attack by using injectable nanoparticles, which could help increase the patient's chance of survival.
The process will involve injecting negatively charged nanoparticles made of a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer into the bloodstream within 24 hours after the heart attack has occurred. The particles will attract the positively-charged monocytes and redirect them to the spleen instead.
The treatment will result in reduction in the size of the heart lesion, allowing the heart to pump significantly more blood.
