Abstract

Cardiac stromal cells have faced through the years a significant evolution in their definitions concerning their phenotypes, markers, and functions. They are surging to key roles in physiopathology, becoming important targets to be exploited for cardiac repair. In this perspective, we briefly discuss their role in novel therapeutic strategies for enhancing cardiac repair and regeneration.
