Bionic heart patch to mend a broken heart

Israeli scientists have developed a proof-of-concept bionic patch to monitor and repair diseased hearts. Ben Gruber reports.

The team says the patch could offer an alternative to heart transplantation in the future by releasing medications as well as repopulating the defected area with cells that are capable of contraction. In the short term, the device could monitor and activate the entire organ as needed as well as alert a doctor to a potentially fatal problem in real time.
