CT-guided Intranspinal Injection

CT-guided intraspinal injection used in the stem cell treatment for spinal cord injury has been developed by Dr. An’s medical team. The procedure causes no trauma to the patient, avoids loss of blood and pain, and allows for rapid recovery. A main advantage is that no major surgery is required. The surgeon operates with sophisticated knowledge of neural anatomy making use of high-level technology.

There will be no trauma caused during the procedure, least pain and loss of blood, and patients could recover rapidly. One of the biggest advantages of this surgery is that no major surgery is required.
Another advantage of the procedure is that it not only allows ordinary visual control but also employs modern imaging technology so the surgeon can inject a large quantity of stem cells directly into the spinal cord with great accuracy. The procedure is conducted with a 64-slice CT under either local or general anesthesia.
With the help of markers, the CT measures the exact area of the injury. It provides a 3D image of the spine that can be rotated in space to check the position of the fractured vertebrae. A 1-1 needle is inserted into the healthy area where the bones do not obstruct the path of the needle. As the surgeon inserts the needle, and until it reaches the spinal cord, updated images are created to check the angle of the needle. The spatial relationship between the spinal cord and vertebrae can be identified exactly, ensuring a safe injection.
Following the injection, the patient remains in the observation room overnight for monitoring. The CT-guided intraspinal injection is also supplemented by a lumbar puncture and/or IV injection of stem cells.

Side effects of CT guided intraspinal injection
Many patients experience post-surgical pain such as radiating pain in the back and extremities, which is expected and natural. This pain is expected to disappear within approximately three days.
Post Treat­ment Monitoring
After pro­ce­dure patients are observed and put on a mon­i­tor which assesses their heart rate, res­pi­ra­tion, and other rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion. A nurse will tend to you, gauge your tem­per­a­ture, and record all data. If you don’t have fever or com­pli­ca­tions, you will be free to leave the hos­pi­tal. The hos­pi­tal is acces­si­ble 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be ready to treat you in the event of any unex­pected med­ical complication.

About Us

The Stem Cell Department of General hospital of Chinese People’s Armed Police Forces is the first neural stem cell transplantation centre in China, which went through the World Health Organisation (WHO) clinical trial registration. The Hospital has also obtained the FDA clinical trial approval and had our laboratory certified with Good Manufacturing Procedures (GMP) certification of stem cell research and preparation. So far we have used stem cell therapy to treat 16,000+ patients from more than 30 countries.
