ScienceDaily (June 11, 2012) — UCLA stem cell scientists purified a subset of stem cells found in fat tissue and made from them bone that was formed faster and was of higher quality than bone grown using traditional methods, a finding that may one day eliminate the need for painful bone grafts that use material taken from the patient during invasive procedures.
DAMAGED eyes have been repaired using sheets of stem cells grown on specifically designed contact lenses in a world-first medical breakthrough by Australian scientists.
"Rotator cuff injuries are being treated now using cell therapy at the center for regenerative medicine." According to A.J. Farshchian MD.
By the time Dr. Spencer Misner had carved away the dead and diseased flesh from Bobby Rice’s right foot last year, little remained other than bones and tendons.
Tyler Biermann is a lot like other sixth grade boys. He loves working on his computer, playing video games, riding a bike and watching television. He has a silly sense of humor and is very curious about the world around him.
What makes Tyler so very special is the great physical hurdles he has overcome in the past 12 years of his life to be able to do the things that most boys his age seem to do so effortlessly.
My heart attacks were stress induced in that my blood vessels in my heart go into spasm when I am stressed and I go into atrial fib. Atrial fib is what started all of this. I had a heart attack in 2003 when my RCA was occluded by clots that were caused by the atrial fib. It took me until 2006 to get my EF back up to 45% when I had 2 stents placed in my LAD due to more atrial fib and spasms causing occlusion. I worked hard to get my EF up to 72% in 2011 by working hard at rehab and was doing well when my stents all clogged up in July leaving me with an EF of 30 % and dropping down to about 20% by the time I went to the Dominican Republic in February 2012. In the past 6 months I went from no CHF to gaining 5 to 7 pounds of weight overnight and requiring diuretics. I was declining rapidly. My heart attack basically blew out the entire anterior wall of my heart and affected the electrical conduction as dead tissue does not respond nor pump very effectively.
Rodger was a "double" patient, taking avantage of Dr. Vina's superior skills to be treated for both heart and lung diseases at the same time for only $26,000. Other stem cell centers costs for a heart-lung double range from $44,000 to $88,000 and take from 2-3 weeks rather than the one enjoyable week in Argentina
Three reports, in three April New York Times articles, document the magnitude of harm produced by America's profit-driven, healthcare system affecting--not only the uninsured poor--but affecting all who are being mistreated and pick-pocketed by today's Robber Barons, the .001% of Americans who control your health and you don’t even know it.
