What is a stroke?
Stroke is a pathological condition in which brain tissue cells die within minutes from lack of oxygen and nutrients. Its consequences for someone’s overall health depend on the size of the lesion. However, there is always at least one ailment to the human brain and normal bodily functions that result from a stroke.
Stroke is a leading cause of adult health impairment, with 15% to 30% of stroke patients becoming permanently disabled and 20% requiring institutional care for at least 3 months after stroke onset.
Strokes are classified into two major categories: ischemic and haemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes (87% of all cases) are those that are caused by an interruption of the blood supply, while haemorrhagic strokes (13%) are ones which result from the rupture of a blood vessel or an abnormal vascular structure.
Symptoms of stroke:
- Numbness or weakness in your face , arm or leg especially on one side
- Confusion or trouble understanding other people
- Difficulties speaking
- Trouble seeing others with both eyes
Stroke symptoms typically start suddenly, lasting from a few seconds to a couple of minutes, and in most cases do not progress further. The symptoms depend on the area of the brain that is affected. The more extensive the affected area is, the more functions are likely to be lost.
What is Treatment of Stroke?
The only approved treatments of acute ischemic stroke involve restoring blood flow to the affected region by using thrombolytic medication or mechanical devices that physically remove clots. However, the use of thrombolytic medication is limited due to a therapeutic window of several days or even just a couple hours (depending on the drug) after the onset of stroke symptoms. Because of this, only a small fraction of stroke patients receive the required therapy in full. Thus, effective prevention remains the best treatment for reducing the burden of stroke.
Further therapy is associated with long-term rehabilitation and recovery of lost functions, in which more progress can be made, but is not guaranteed.
Conservative medicine has no considerable methods which could promote recovery other than physical, occupational, and speech therapy. In recent years, the hope for improvement after a stroke has been associated with regenerative medicine. In particular, with the use of cell-based products.
Until recently, brain tissue damage was considered permanent. But nowadays the possibility of brain cell regrowth and improvements in neurological function has been scientifically proven.
Cell-based treatment stimulates the re-growth of nerve tissue due to the therapeutic properties of stem cells.
In the therapy, the patient’s own stem cells are harvested from abdominal fat or bone marrow, then activated and put back into the body. Large numbers of introduced active stem cells migrate to the brain and implement growth.
The procedure is safe and proven to activate cells around the suffering brain tissue to catalyse rapid healing and to improve brain function . Stem cell treatment improves the bending and straightening of the joints, increasing the agility in fingers. Muscle strength and control of limbs are improved, as well.
What are the top Benefits of Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments?
