After New Stroke Treatment Patients Can Walk Talk And Live A Normal Life

Doctors have reversed the symptoms of stroke in a major medical breakthrough.Patients regained the ability to walk, speak and have a normal family life, thanks to a procedure requiring only local anaesthetic and a single night in hospital.Remarkably, the stem cell treatment was shown to work even three years after someone had suffered a stroke – meaning that millions of people could potentially benefit from the new stroke treatment.Eighteen patients underwent the procedure in an initial trial – with stunning results.

Despite the long gap between stroke and treatment, all 18 patients in the pilot showed increasing improvement for the 12 months they were tracked after the operation.Nearly half showed ‘clinically meaningful’ results – which meant the procedure had a significant impact on their lifestyle.
