HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!!

This is an incredibly special birthday, considering all that he has been through!!!

DIAGNOSIS – 2006

James Eilert, 34 years old, presents with a “widowmaker” [100 % blockage of the left ascending coronary artery]. His ejection fraction (EF – volume of blood his heart pumps out) was between 20 and 25 percent (55 is normal). His cardiologist told him he has about 5 years left to live.  James had to leave his country and travel to Thailand in order to receive Repair Stem Cell treatment.

RECOVERY

* · 1 1/2 weeks after treatment – Echocardiogram revealed that his completely dead apex was beating again.
* · 6 months after treatment – Sidewalls of heart beat normally.  Septum went from 100% damage to 30% damage. Cardiologist confirms James’ heart is 50 percent more elastic than the year before Repair Stem Cell therapy.
* · 6 – 9 months after treatment – James’ total dead heart tissue is down to about 10%.  EF is up to 50%!
* · 4 years later – James’ heart and health continue to improve. He continues to push himself and his limits.  He runs regularly, works 7 days a week and can bike 20 miles .

SUMMATION:

* · James went from Class III congestive heart failure to Class I with an ejection fraction (EF) increase from ~20-25% to his current EF of 50%.  His doctors have lifted all restrictions and limitations on his physical activities.

Hooray for James and beating the odds!

James Eilert, a young man, who was a victim of the heart disease epidemic that is increasingly taking hold around the world, has been given a second chance at a healthy life thanks to VesCell adult stem cell therapy.

In 2006, at the relatively young age of 34, James experienced a major heart attack. His left anterior descending artery (or what the doctors call the ‘widowmaker’) was 100% blocked. The heart attack left him with severe damage to his heart. A normal ejection fraction is generally considered to be 55-75%. At the tender age of 34, James’ ejection fraction had sunk to 20-25%. The doctors diagnosed him as being in Class III NYHA Heart Failure.

He didn’t want to die, but figured dying would be a better option than living as he was. That was when James stumbled upon VesCell on the internet. Already a patient at the world renowned Henry Ford Heart and Vascular Institute in Detroit, James was shocked to find out that Dr. Barbara Czerska, the Medical Director of the Heart Failure Transplant Program at Henry Ford was featured prominently on the VesCell website. That, along with reading that recent medical research indicates that dead heart tissue can be ‘awakened’ by the implantation of adult stem cells gave James new hope.

He contacted VesCell and Dr. Czerska and prepared for his trip to Bangkok, Thailand to receive a new shot of hope using his own adult stem cells.

After arrival in Bangkok, James along with his father, were well taken care of by the TheraVitae team and the doctors and nurses at Phyathai 2 Hospital. James was treated by Dr. Damras Tresukosol, the director of the Phyathai-Harvard Heart Center and also the lead investigator of TheraVitae’s clinical trial using adult stem cells which was presented at the American Heart Association annual meeting in 2006.

Treated on November 14, 2007, James received 41 million of his own adult stem cells via catheter to heal his damaged heart muscle.

Told by doctors that the stem cells would take approximately 6-8 weeks to take affect, James was pleasantly surprised that the doctors were mistaken – just 1½ weeks after his stem cell treatment,

James had an echocardiogram done and found out his previously dead part of his heart had life again….
