Retired chef William relishes the simple pleasure of standing on his own two feet these days, thanks to the advanced care offered by Stem Cell Care India. What started out as a simple sore on his foot put William on a path to perhaps losing his right leg? His blood flow also compromised, William required amputation of four toes on his right foot until he planned to undergo stem cell treatment.
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) signifies the most advanced stage of peripheral arterial obstructive disease (PAOD) with a severe obstruction of the arteries which distinctly decreases blood flow to the extremities and has advanced to the point of severe rest pain and/or even tissue loss. Recent therapeutic strategies at Stem Cell Care India have concentrated on reinstating this balance in favor of tissue survival using mesenchymal cells to encourage regeneration of the vasculature. These are centered on stimulation of angiogenesis by extracellular and cellular constituents. This clinic carried out a systematic analysis of the most recent scientific literature based on the application of stem cells in patients with CLI. The outcomes obtained from the comprehensive analysis of the recent literature data have confirmed the advantageous role of cell therapy in dropping the rate of major amputations in patients with CLI and improving their quality of life, like that of William. Today, he can walk on his right leg without discomfort and no new wounds have developed. After facing amputation, he is grateful his leg was saved. “I’m delighted about it,” says William.
