Vancouver medical researchers make heart-pounding breakthrough (Dr. Zachary Laksman)
Anyone suffering from heart arrhythmia won’t be in pain for much longer, thanks to a team of doctors at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.
Medical researchers there have grown heart cells that can mimic abnormal heart rhythms.
Dr. Zachary Laksman and his team say it’s the first time these kind of cells have been created in a petri dish, and will allow them to figure out which drugs work best for people with heart arrhythmia.
