Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke
A cerebrovascular accident is also known as a stroke. A stroke is a life-threatening event in which part of the brain is deprived of adequate oxygen.
There are two kinds of strokes:
Ischemic strokes occur when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, usually by a blood clot originating from the carotid arteries. These arteries feed the head and brain with oxygen-rich blood. The cause is usually atherosclerotic plaques in one of the arteries.
How can stem cell help?
- Large numbers of active stem cells are needed to implement the re-growth of nerve tissue damaged due to anoxia during stroke.
- The traditional treatments are not much of any use.
- The motor function loss depends on the area of infarct in the brain.
- The patient’s stem cells are harvested from bone marrow & abdominal fat and given back in few hours time.
- The cells migrate to the brain and implement growth. The procedure is simple and proven to activate cells around the suffering brain tissue to catalyze rapid healing and to improve brain function.
- As the neural growth takes place, gradually the functions are restored.
- Stem cell treatment has proven to improve bending and straightening of the joints and adding more agility in fingers. Muscle strength and control of limbs also improved.
- The stem cell treatment certainly improves the quality of life by improving the mobility of limbs and making them independent.
- The stem cell hastens the recovery process.
