Cranial reconstructions will soon be radicalized with the addition of 3D printing and stem cells into the method. A team of scientists from Western Australia will soon attempt this new technique with the intention of seeing the reduction in risk of complications, surgical procedure duration and costs.

The first patients will be those from the Royal Perth Hospital, whose skulls have either been severely damaged or partially removed for brain surgery.

The research team, which includes a surgeon, two engineers, a neurosurgeon and chief scientist will collaborate with a Vienna-based 3D printing firm to replicate the bones from the patients’ cranium.

A printed bioceramic scaffold less than 100 microns (0.1mm) of the original bone will be infused with millions of stem cells. This will be fitted onto the patient’s skull.

This is the first time stem cells will be put to use with 3D printed scaffold to assist in bone regrowth, according to neurosurgeon Marc Coughlan.

“What we’re trying to do is take it one step further and have the ceramic resorb and then be only left with the patient’s bone, which would be exactly the same as having the skull back,” he said.

Health minister Kim Hames says,”This project highlights some of the innovative and groundbreaking research that is under way in WA’s public health system, and the commitment of the government to supporting this crucial work.”

The reconstruction project is part of the nine health and medical projects in Western Australia that has been allocated A$2 Million (US$1.5 Million) research funding grant by the state government. The government’s aim is to eventually reduce costs and improve efficiency in Australia’s public health service through the help of these projects.

Previous methods by past studies had the bone part frozen and stored for later replanting. However, attempts to replant often resulted either in infection or bone resorption. The more popular titanium plates, on the other hand, pose the problem of eventual material degradation.

Regenerative Medicine and Healthcare Risks: Risk Group Dialogue with Deven Patel

While a big-data revolution is under way in health care, there is also another silent revolution brewing in healthcare industry in the form of Regenerative Medicine.

In this session of Risk Roundup, Risk Group discusses Regenerative Medicine and Healthcare with GIOSTAR CEO Mr. Deven Patel, CEO, President & Cofounder at Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research (GIOSTAR) with headquarter in San Diego, California, U.S.A.

Here we have Pratyush’s Parents and they have come from New Delhi especially for second session of stem cell treatment.

“We understood that something was wrong with Pratyush from the beginning, as he did not give proper response. However, we knew nothing about Autism. A speech therapist who lives in our neighborhood once, asked us to visit her as she heard Pratyush crying too much. She suggested us to take Pratyush to a psychologist, as she felt that Pratyush has some kind of a disorder. When we took Pratyush to a psychologist and came to knew that he suffered from mild autism. The doctor told us that he is a special child and he will remain like this and will need your support all the time. Some people suggested that send him to playschool so that he remains engrossed in games and studies. Afterwards we started looking for a alternative treatment option for autism, and came across stem cell therapy. Over the internet, we came to know about a child who recovered 100 percent because of stem cell treatment. Then we started look for a trustworthy hospital and came to know about Giostar, and its center in US, but then we came to know that it has opened a center in India as well. I investigated more about this and contacted Dr Praveen, who educated us about stem cell therapy and told us that this would be more effective for Pratyush as he is still very young. We also came to know that research on using stem cell treatment for autism is still under progress and no complete success has still been reported, but doctors at Giostar hospital assured us that it will improve Pratyush’s condition, and it was proved after the first stem cell session only. We saw a big change in Pratyush and his condition as improved a lot. Earlier he never felt urine and would urinate anywhere, he have to keep diapers on all the time, and never even said anything when the diapers were full. Now, he tries to remove his diapers and he has started feeling the urge to urinate. In fact, he has started responding when his name is called, which earlier he did not. Now, he started uttering many words and repeat words after us. All these improvements are evident after the first session of stem cell therapy only. Not only we, but also his teachers and other people have also identified this improvement in him. As far as the team of Giostar hospital is concerned, we have no complaint Giostar and their service was the best. In fact, we were concerned about the side effects of this treatment, but nothing negative happened just because of the efforts of doctors and staff at Giostar.

I reside in Gujarat, and my mother Jeevantika Desai, who is 79 years of age is suffering from osteoarthritis and knee joint problem from the last 15 to 17 years. She has been suggested to go for knee replacement surgery, but she was not ready for that. Fortunately, we came across the details of stem cell procedure conducted at Giostar hospital Ahmedabad. I made some enquiries through email and phone, and I went to Ahmedabad to meet Dr Divyang personally and we had a detailed discussion regarding stem cell therapy and the consequences of this therapy. I was convinced, my mother was admitted on third of September 2014, on fourth the procedure of stem cell treatment was carried out, and she was discharged the next day. Now, after fifteen to sixteen days of the treatment, I am very happy to see recovery of my mother’s problem. The pain has almost gone, there is little bit pain, but it is still very reasonable as compared to what she has been suffering before this procedure was conducted.  The swelling has also reduced and is still reducing tremendously. In fact, I must say that this is a miraculous recovery. Still only fifteen days has passed, but as the protocol is of 45 to 60 days, I think by the end of first 60 days of follow up she will be recovering almost more than 90 percent and after the second follow up of another 60 days, I am sure that she will be recovering from all the pain. I strongly recommended to all those patients who suffer from osteoarthritis and who have been suggested replacement, to go for stem cell treatment conducted at Giostar Hospital Ahmedabad. I personally thank all the team of doctors and all the staff for the cooperation that they offered. My sincere personal regards to Dr Divyang Sir, who is so humble and cooperative and he has been there as for all our clarifications and he has done a great job to my mother. Thank you so much.
