What are the benefit from having stem cells after a heart attack?

SCT unproven untestd. To my knowledge, there has been no experimental proof of benefit for stem cell therapy (SCT). SCT is still in its infancy & very expensive so weigh the potential benefits against that. Stem cells are touted to replace / regenerate damaged cells, so theoretically u cd improve the heart's function & avoid heart failure; but again, SCT is unproven & needs to be tested. Thanks for ur question on HT!
