Don Ho, Hawai'i's most famous entertainer, has undergone an experimental heart procedure in a hospital in Bangkok, Thailand — a last-resort effort to maintain a regular heartbeat and extend his life.
Ho has been in an intensive care unit but his condition is stable, said Ed Brown, his one-time manager and lifelong friend based in Los Angeles.
Ho initially went to Pittsburgh to consult with University of Pittsburgh cardiologist Amit Patel, who developed the treatment in the U.S. The relatively simple procedure requires the drawing of 250 cc to 300 cc of blood, less than a standard donation, from which the stem cells are isolated and multiplied through a patented process.
