Stem cell research has generated great excitement over the last few years. In cardiovascular medicine, the possibility to cure heart failure with newly generated cardiomyocytes (CMCs) has sparked the interest of many scientists; as a result, different "ideal" cardiac stem cells were proposed for therapeutic use. We review here the literature in the cardiac stem cell field, which sometimes is "dialectic" in methodology and results.
