HISTORY

Mariam Safi is a 35 years old female patient who admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to “progressive limb weakness for over 30 years”. She was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Medical Condition Prior to Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for SMA

Prior to receiving Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for SMA, the patient’s tendon reflex symmetry of four limbs was decreased or basically disappeared (-). Muscle tone of four limbs was decreased. Mild muscular dystrophy was noted in bilateral scapula muscles, bilateral interosseus of hands, muscle of thenar, and bilateral gastrocnemius.
Muscle Strength:
Shoulder joints: left adduction 3+/5, abduction 4-/5; right adduction 4-/5, abduction 4/5. Elbow joints: left flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5; right flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5.
Waist joints: left extension 4-/5, flexion 4-/5; right flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5.
Hands: left grip 4-/5; right grip 4-/5. Fingers: left flexion 3+/5, extension 3+/5; right extension 3+/5, flexion 3+/5. Hip joints: adduction 3+/5, abduction 3+/5, flexion: 1-2/5.
Knees: bilateral extension 4-/5, flexion4-/5.
Ankles: bilateral extension 4-/5, flexion 4-/5.
Toes: bilateral extension 3+/5, flexion 3+/5.

Stem Cell Treatment for 21 days

After admission, several medical protocols were applied, including treatment to improve neural function, promote cerebral blood flow and metabolism, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), rehabilitation therapy, as well as general symptomatic and supportive treatment.

Medical Condition after Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for SMA

After 21 days Stem Cell Treatment for SMA, The patient's muscle strength is improved with acceptable diet and sleeping. No abnormality was noted in urine and stool function.
Muscle Strength:
Shoulder joints: left adduction 4-/5, abduction 4/5; right adduction 4/5, abduction 4+/5.
Elbow joints: left flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5; right flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5.
Waist joints: left extension 4-/5, flexion 4-/5; right flexion 4-/5, extension 4-/5.
Hands: left grip 4-/5; right grip 4/5.
Fingers: left flexion 3+/5, extension 3+/5; right extension 3+/5, flexion 3+/5.
Hip joints: left adduction 4-/5, abduction 4-/5, flexion: 2+/5.
Knees: bilateral extension 4/5, flexion4/5.
Ankles: bilateral extension 4/5, flexion 4/5.
Toes: bilateral extension 4-/5, flexion4-/5.
