CENTRAL NERVOUS IMPAIRMENT

INTRODUCTION

Central Nervous System Impairment: Disorders of the central nervous system (CNS) are a class of neurological conditions that affect the anatomy or function of the brain, spinal cord, or both.

CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM IMPAIRMENT

When the brain does not function properly, it can be a sign of a disorder of the central nervous system (CNS). These disorders can have a significant impact on both health and overall function, resulting in symptoms such as changes in movement, sensation, cognition, or mood.

A few examples of central nervous system disorders include:

    • Vascular disorders
    • Infections
    • Structural disorders
    • Functional disorders
    • Degeneration

SYMPTOMS

    • Persistent or sudden headache
    • Different or changing headache
    • Loss of feeling or tingling
    • Loss or weakness of muscle strength
    • Double vision or reduction in sight
    • Memory loss
    • Impaired mental ability
    • Decrease in coordination
    • Muscle rigidity
    • Tremors and seizures
    • Back pain radiating to feet, toes and other parts of the body
    • Slurred speech and muscle wasting
    • New language impairment

WHAT CAUSES THE DISEASE?

The brain and spinal cord make up your central nervous system (CNS). Some of the causes of central nervous system impairment include:

    • Trauma
    • Infections
    • Degeneration
    • Structural defects
    • Tumors
    • Autoimmune disorders
    • Stroke

CURRENT TREATMENTS

​Interventional neuroradiology treatments include:

    1. Balloon angioplasty and stenting of carotid or vertebral artery
    2. Endovascular embolization and coiling to treat cerebral aneurysms
    3. Intra-arterial therapy for stroke
    4. Myelography to take pictures of the spinal structures
    5. Radiation oncology of the brain and spine
    6. Needle biopsies, spine and soft tissues
    7. Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty to treat vertebral fractures
    • Open or traditional neurosurgery may be needed to treat problems in the brain and surrounding structures. This is invasive surgery that requires the surgeon to make an opening, called a craniotomy, in the skull
    • Microsurgery allows the surgeon to work on very small structures in the brain using a microscope and very small, precise instruments
    • Stereotactic radiosurgery may be needed for certain types of nervous system disorders. This is a form of radiation therapy that focuses high-powered x-rays on a small area of the body. This helps to avoid damage to surrounding brain tissue
    • ​Treatment of nervous system-related diseases or disorders may also include:
    1. Medicines, possibly given by a drug pumps such as those used for people with severe muscle spasms
    2. Deep brain stimulation
    3. Spinal cord stimulation
    4. Rehabilitation/physical therapy after brain injury or stroke
    5. Spinal surgery

WHAT WE OFFER? OFFER?

STEM CELL THERAPY - SCITRON SCITRON

Scitron is a Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), derived from human umbilical cords. Upon treatment, the cultured cells are injected either intramuscularly or intravenously into the patient. The cells are characterized by low immunogenicity. Hence, it is very safe, tolerable and free of side effects.

BENEFITS OF OUR TREATMENTS?

Stem Cell Therapy

High self-renewal

​Low immunogenicity

Less invasive procedure

Anti-inflammation properties

HOW IT WORKS? WORKS?

Therapeutic potentials of cell therapy 

Cell transplantation is used to achieve neurorestoration, whether by cell replacement or brain circuitry repair.

Endogenous neurogenesis, as well as angiogenesis and vasculogenesis, are all activated, creating a pool of rapidly
multiplying new cells.

​Immunomodulation at the local and systemic levels is a crucial component of cell therapy.

​Another use of cell therapy is medication discovery and disease pathology screening using stem cell-based technologies.
