In this review article, Duran and colleagues provide an overview of pluripotent stem cell (PSC) technology and its potential for application in heart failure. The authors focus on the derivation and reprogramming of these cells for cardiac regeneration, the potential immunogenicity of cardiomyocytes reprogrammed from PSCs, and current cardiac tissue engineering research.
