Stroke

A stroke (sometimes called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA)) is a condition where the brain is deprived of oxygen. Lack of oxygen and glucose to the brain damage the brain cells and often disrupts the speech, movement, visual and memory of a person.

Strokes are of two types Ischemic (lack of blood flow) and Hemorrhagic (leakage of blood).

Ischemic stoke can result out of blood clot or thrombus that blocks blood flow to the part of the brain. A clot carried through the bloodstream to the brain can cause Ischemic stoke.

Hemorrhagic Stoke occurs after the blood vessel on the brain’s surface ruptures and fills the space between the brain and the skull with blood (subarachnoid hemorrhage) or when a defective artery in the brain bursts and fills the surrounding tissue with blood (cerebral hemorrhage).

How the stoke will affect a person depends on where stoke has occurred and how much part of the brain has been affected. Small stokes will result into minor problems like weakness in the arms or legs. Larger stokes can prove life threatening and lead to paralysis or death.

Few facts about the stem cells
  • Stem cell is non invasive procedure which does not require any stitch, dissection or tissues manipulation. In adults it can be undertaken under local aesthesia. Children may need tranquiliser or short aesthesia for five minutes only.
  • Bone marrow Transplantation is autologous, so there is no fear of rejection or mismatch or need for immunosuppressant required in other transplantation surgeries.
  • AUTOLOGOUS stem cells are safe .
  • Good results are documented in otherwise dead-end patients. Other clinical trial modalities are only supportive and empirical.
