Using Umbilical Cord Blood to Speed Stroke Recovery
Ischemic strokes occur when a blood clot blocks the flow of blood to the brain. These are the most common type of strokes to occur. Brain cells are killed due to the lack of oxygen as a result of the blood clot and then causes swelling. Although the clot(s) can be broken up by medication, damage will continue to occur to the affected portion of the brain as long as the swelling continues. A new study out of Houston Methodist will look into the use of umbilical cord blood to help heal the brain at a quicker rate after occurrence of an ischemic stroke. Click here to read more.
