Cerebral palsy is a condition affecting nervous system and brain functions such as thinking, hearing, movement, learning and seeing.
There are different types of cerebral palsy including ataxic, spastic, hypotonic, dyskinetic, and mixed.
Injuries and abnormalities of the brain are what cause cerebral palsy. The majority of these problems develop while the baby is still in the womb, but they can occur during the first 2 years of life, as the baby’s brain is still developing.
In some cerebral palsy patients, low levels of oxygen (hypoxia) in parts of the brain cause damage. The cause of this is unknown.
Premature babies are more at risk of developing cerebral palsy. When cerebral palsy occurs in early infancy it can be as a result of several conditions, such as head injury, brain infection or bleeding, rubella and severe jaundice.
Cerebral palsy symptoms vary and tend to appear between the ages of 3 months and 2 years. They can include muscle tightness, an abnormal walk, joint contracture, muscle weakness or paralysis, twisting or jerking, tremors, loss of coordination, floppy muscles, decreased intelligence, speech problems, vision or hearing problems, seizures, pain, difficulty swallowing, vomiting or constipation, drooling, slowed growth, urinary incontinence and irregular breathing.
New Stem Cell Application to Treat Cerebral Palsy
Undifferentiated adult stem cells can easily alter their form and change into the cells of countless organs and structures within the human body. Used in various treatments, they can heal damaged fibers and rejuvenate failing cells using cell division, a process in which they multiply indefinitely. Stem cell research has seen vast progress in recent times with many new developments and discoveries being made.
Angeles Hospital’s New Stem Cell Application Program
Angeles hospital developed the Adult Autologous Stem Cell (A-ASC) Therapy program to relieve a variety of syndromes, including cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is managed with autologous adult stem cells, cells that are harvested from the patient themselves. There is almost no risk of a patient’s body rejecting their own stem cells.
Angeles hospital’s medical practitioners work with stem cells that are from the patient’s bone marrow and adipose tissue, or fat. As adipose tissue extraction is far superior to bone marrow extraction, due to it producing up to ten times more stem cells, it is more commonly used. Bone marrow extraction is more of a challenge to carry out and is not applied so often.
The progressive and therapeutic endovascular insertion of adipose-derived adult autologous stem cells at Hospital Angeles enables organs and tissues to be targeted directly.
A specialized catheterization procedure that is non-invasive and as comfortable as possible is our chosen method. Stem cells can be delivered throughout the patient’s body, there is no need for anesthesia and it is over in less than an hour.
Angeles Health International is a Center of Excellence that offers cerebral palsy patients the most innovative therapies of the highest quality and confidence. Expert medical practitioners work continuously to establish and promote best practice. Collaboratively they measure outcomes and establish outstanding treatment protocols. The Center of Excellence’s doctors adhere to formally appointed bodies of expertise. The highest standards of health care and investigative research are maintained at all times.
