A stroke is an acute violation of the blood supply that leads to the development of stable neurological symptoms. A stroke can be ischemic, associated with a lack of blood supply, or hemorrhagic, associated with a hemorrhage. An ischemic stroke is more common, with the survival rate for this disease being higher. Unfortunately, many patients remain disabled, and they undergo rehabilitation to improve their neurological functions. Additional benefits can be obtained from undergoing stem cell treatment for stroke. Stem cells (SCs) are still not a standard method of therapy but are already used at many hospitals in developed countries. If cell therapy is not yet used in your native country, you can undergo your treatment abroad. You are welcome to use the Booking Health service to find out the price of treatment, compare treatment costs at different hospitals, and select a medical care program for your preferred dates. The cost of stem cell therapy for stroke is between 21,850 EUR and 22,800 EUR.

How do stem cells work?


Stem cells are used to enhance tissue regeneration. SCs can transform into any other cells, including neurons. In addition, they reduce inflammation, stimulate tissue repair due to the release of growth factors, and ensure the formation of new cerebral blood vessels for normal blood supply to the damaged areas of the brain.

The cause of a stroke is damage to the brain tissue. The treatment for this disease should therefore include regenerative therapy. It provides a true restoration of the brain after the death of its parts.

Stem cells alone are not enough for recovery from a stroke. They enhance the effect of rehabilitation activities and should be used in combination with therapeutic exercises, physiotherapy, and other methods.

How is stem cell therapy performed?


The patient's own stem cells are used for stroke treatment. These can be harvested from peripheral blood and bone marrow. Less often, the source of stem cells may be adipose tissue or umbilical cord blood.

Stem cells are administered intravenously. Less commonly, other methods of administration may be used, such as through a lumbar puncture or through an Ommaya reservoir into the cerebrospinal fluid. Both methods have performed well in clinical trials. Stem cells have been proven to:

  • reorganize the neural network of the brain;
  • reduce local and systemic inflammation;
  • support axon regeneration;
  • improve neuromuscular transmission;
  • reduce glial scars.

Cell replacement can be achieved by differentiation of the transplanted cells into neuronal or vascular cells, which compensates for lost functions, or by direct colonization and development of neuronal progenitor cells. In vivo studies (in the body) have shown that approximately half of the stem cells in the ischemic brain develop into a neuronal phenotype 2 months after a transplant procedure.

When can stem cell therapy be used?


In studies, stem cells are used in all periods of a cerebral stroke:

  • acute stroke – up to 36 hours;
  • subacute stroke – up to 6 months;
  • chronic – after 6 months.

The earlier therapy is started, the better the results. Japanese studies show better functional outcomes and even lower mortality rates in patients treated with stem cells during the acute period. Dozens of studies have shown improvement in functional outcomes when treated in the subacute period. At the same time, the results of studies involving patients who had a cerebral stroke more than 6 months ago are mixed. Some show improvement, while others show no significant benefit over the control group.

It is therefore better not to delay the beginning of treatment. The best results can be achieved when starting therapy up to 6 months after stroke, while the brain's capacity for recovery is preserved.

Where to undergo treatment abroad?
