    No catheter anymore after cell therapy

    "It should highlight value any functional neurorestoration which can be gotten today because any little progress in neurorestoratology is not easily gotten; hope to get more tomorrow because many scientists and physicians are dedicating themselves to neurorestoratology."

    PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: Mental status was normal. There were no abnormal sign in his head. Motor power: The strength was 1 grade bilaterally in hip flexors and knee extensors, the other were 0 grade in lower limbs. Light touch was disappeared at L2 on the right, at the T12 on the left. Pin prick was disappeared at L1 on the right, at the T12 on the left. Abdominal reflex sign was disappeared bilaterally. Babinski sign was negative bilaterally. No anal contraction and sensation was noticed.
    l ASIA motor score was 27 points on the right, 27points on the left.
    lASIA light touch score was 40 points on the right, 36 points on the left.
    lASIA pin prick score was 38 points on the right, 36 points on the left.
    lScore of International Association of Neurorestoratology Spinal Cord Injury Functional Rating Scale was 25 points.
    lScore of WISCI II was 0 point.
    lScore of Barthel Index was 35 points.
    OPERATIVE PROCEDURE: The minimally invasive percutaneous intrathecal (L2-3) implantation of cerebrolysin was done on March 31, 2010, April 6, 2010, April 14, 2010, April 19, 2010 and April 27, 2010.
    The minimally invasive percutaneous intrathecal (T11-12) implantation of embryonic neural stem/progenitor cells (2×106) and umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (1×107) together with cerebrolysin was done on March 22, 2010.
    The nasal mucosa biopsy was done on March 19, 2010, the intrathecal (T11-12) transplantation of autologous olfactory mucosa ensheathing cells (1×107), olfactory ensheathing cells (1×106) and embryonic neural stem/progenitor cells (2×106), together with cerebrolysinand was done on April 9, 2010.
    The minimally invasive percutaneous intrathecal (T11-12) implantation of Schwann cells (1×106) and embryonic neural stem/progenitor cells (2×106), plus cerebrolysin and Actovegin was done on March 26, 2010.
    The minimally invasive percutaneous intrathecal (T11-12) implantation of Schwann cells (1×106), umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (1×107) and embryonic neural stem/progenitor cells (2×106), plus cerebrolysin and Actovegin was done on April 20, 2010.

    POST-OPERATIVE COURSE: The postoperative course was uneventful. During the admission, the assistant treatments including cycling (30-45mins×10 times), electric stimulation (30mins×40 times), and acupuncture therapy (20min, Qd), standing bed (30mins×10 times), walking with brace and walker (60mins×20 times). At discharge, he can walk with brace and walker; he can better control the activities of his legs and have more capability to take care himself. He can urinate with removal of catheter.
    lASIA motor score was 27 points on the right, 27points on the left.
    lASIA light touch score was 40 points on the right, 37 points on the left.
    lASIA pin prick score was 40 points on the right, 36 points on the left.
    lScore of International Association of Neurorestoratology Spinal Cord Injury Functional Rating Scale was 25 points.
    lScore of WISCI II was 9 points, which increased by 9 points involving aspect of walking with walker and brace without help for 10m.
    lScore of Barthel Index was 60 points, which increased by 25 points involving aspect of controlling bladder, using toilet, transfers, mobility.

    why did he receive all of those different cells? why not just one type? he was a T11/12 incomplete that was less than a year post injury. he is still healing. i think the stem cells may have progressed recovery but i think there is not enough to say it was the SC that caused recovery. i think its wonderful for experimental learning but there are much better therapies put together that havent been put to use yet in humans that should be used. lets get the bowl rolling!

      I read he is a complete injury.

      BTW, everything was done without surgery right? Just intravenous?

      "I could walk with the brace and walker."
      I don't know what they always say things like that, walking with leg braces is NOT walking.
      Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

                  agreed. getting around without a chair with wheels would improve my life. and no cath's would be just as nice...

                        This man has more luck than others. At least there is possibility to improve life. Walk is the final goal. But how long it will take to reach the goal? Will be happy if get small improvements step by step. Everyday is new. The important thing is hope.
