Abstract

In this state-of-the-art review, we present the historical background of extracellular vesicles (EVs), introduce EVs derived from cardiac cells, summarise the current evidence on the role of EVs in cardioprotection and adverse post-infarct left ventricle remodelling, and present the potential clinical applications of EV-based biomarkers and therapeutics.
