Traumatic Brain Injury
A. WHAT IS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY? (Head Injury)
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Head Injury is caused by an external force. It could cause a severe blow to the brain culminating into serious injury. This injury, can lead to some complications like lack of oxygen to the brain with rising pressure and swelling of the brain tissue. A head injury can be grouped into closed and penetrating brain injury.
A closed head injury happens when the brain and the skull remain intact. On the other hand, a penetrating Head Injury happens when a sharp item breaks opens the skull and enters the brain.
CAUSES OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Falling from a height such as from a bed, ladder, stairs, slipping in the bath, etc.
Vehicular accidents is a common cause of TBI.
Gunshot wounds, domestic violence or child abuse is another cause of TBI
Accidents during adventure sports or extreme sports can also cause traumatic head injuries.
B. STEM CELL THERAPY FOR TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Stem cell treatment for traumatic brain injury stimulates neurons as a consequence of neuroplasticity. Through this we not only form new cells but also reinforce the ongoing neuroplasticity. Many types of stem cells can be employed during stem cell treatment for traumatic brain injury.
Bone marrow derived stem cells are able to form neural cells. They help restore the damaged brain tissue after a traumatic brain injury. The transmitted stem cells to the brain can build a repair and renewal process of newer blood vessels. Development of new axons, neurogenesis and fresh communication between neurons help renew the brain damage. Some growth and neurotrophic factors help in restoring the neuron protection.
Stem cell treatment for traumatic brain injury helps restore lost cells through proliferation and differentiation. This transmits into the nervous tissues like astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and endothelial cells and ascertains practical improvement. To conclude, stem cell treatment for traumatic brain injury in India is a successful treatment for Head Injury and facilitates to heal the injured area.
