25-JANUARY-2010  MURAD MUHAMED ALIYAN  38 YEARS  PARTIAL SPINAL CORD INJURY AT C5-7 AFTER FALLING DOWN 1990 WITH FRACTURE OF C5.

Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 16-October-2001 complaining of limping when walking with quadriparesis and hypalgesia below C4 both sides. The patient after falling down 07-January-1990 got fracture C5 with quadriplegia below this level and decompression and fusion was performed at that time. The patient was advised to undergo conservative treatment and to be reevaluated after one month.

The patient then came 17-November-2001 and the sensory deficits disappeared and he had the power of the right hand grip 3/5 and extension 2/5 and triceps 3/5. The power of the right quadriceps was 3/5. adduction of the knee 4/5, abduction 3/5 and dorsi and planterflexion of the foot 3/5. The patient still limping but feeling better.

The patient consulted me to try stem-cell therapy and I told him to try this kind of therapy and he travelled to Germany to The XCell-Center, Eduardus Hospital, Custodisstraße 3-17, 50679 Cologne 3months ago and underwent treatment.

bullet

The patient then came to me for reevaluation and it was noticed that some deterioration of his power of the upper limbs took place: The biceps became 4/5 and the grip of the right hand became 1-2/5 and the triceps 2/5. There is some improvement of the quadriceps 4/5 and adduction of the knee 5/5, but deterioration of the planterflexion right foot 2/3.

MRI performed 17-January-2010 showing the same picture of the spinal cord with malacia extending from C3 down to C6  without any morphological changes in comparison to many MRIs performed previously.

bullet

The patient is still limping and he claims that he got some improvement with gait and the right hand became less spastic. The patient is receiving Lyrica and Liorezal and using drop foot brace for the right foot.


Comments

bullet

Stem cell therapy is still in the early stages and it cannot be that mode of magic that will heal all the pathologies as the centers claim. This is an example, that the patient actually regained nothing except that he got the drop foot brace, which improved his gait.

bullet

It is early to to decide that stem cell therapy can resolve the problem of complete paraplegia and the trading with partial spinal cord injury can be misleading.
