Worldwide, Strokes are estimated to be the second leading cause of death, being responsible for approximately 9% of total deaths globally per year. It is the leading cause of disability among adults with about 90% of surviving Stroke victims being left with some type of physical disability. Strokes are caused by cardiovascular accidents which can be classified as ischemic Strokes (blockage of blood supply) or haemorrhage (internal bleeding in the brain). As a result wide areas of brain cells are atrophied.
Strokes typically affect one side of the brain and affect movement abilities on the other side of the body. For example, a Stroke in the right side of the brain can impair movement in both the arms and legs of the left side of the body. In addition, problems with gait and balance are common repercussions of a Stroke. It is also possible for the speech or the visual field of a patient to be affected and, in extreme cases, cognitive abilities can also be impaired. Conventional forms of Stroke treatment are limited in their ability to help people who have suffered from a Stroke.
Since a Stroke usually strikes unexpectedly and abruptly, it can be a very terrifying experience - for any individual having the Stroke as well as for those people close to them. Quick response may also help lessen the damage to a person’s brain and also increase the possibility of making a full recovery. Delays in getting medical help can result in loss of life or long-term impairments.
Strokes affect every person differently, and it is also difficult to say how much of a recovery can be made by each person. This is where Stroke therapy comes in. Several years of technological research now reveal that Stroke therapy is crucial for optimum Stroke rehabilitation. The advantages result from helping the brain to reorganize by itself and enable the Stroke survivor to get better and recover the functions that were lost after the brain injury.
The limits of rehabilitational Stroke treatments
During the first few weeks after the initial Stroke, these cells are actually not yet dead, but in a 'comatose' state. Stroke treatment mainly consists of rehabilitational therapy, which in this time-period can recover some of the patient’s abilities. During the course of the following 6 months, however, these cells die one after another until every last remaining cell has died. At that point, it is impossible for rehabilitational therapy to help the patient make any improvement, as it cannot replenish the number of brain cells.
Stem cell treatment as a form of Stroke therapy offers a new and effective way of treating patients for Strokes. Stem cells have the ability to repair and to replenish brain cells. With our Stroke treatment, it is possible for patients to permanently regain many of their abilities, even many years after their Stroke. The stem cells will form into neuron cells, which rebuild the destroyed neural pathways improving movement, gait, speech, visual field and even cognitive abilities.
