HAPPY BIRTHDAY to JAMES and his GIANT HEART!

Posted May 26 2010 12:00am

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.

Heart muscle health aspect from James Eilert story

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!
