After suffering a stroke in his brain leg, a 40-year-old patient was totally punctuated on the right hand side of the body and the patient on the left had partially lost loss. It was unlikely to restore the stability of the body. But the Colombian neurologist Gabriel Augusto Castillo developed New treatment based on electromagnetic stimulation that allowed the woman to move again; And that promises to be the beginning of scientific innovation in the world.
The case of the physical paralysis – Castillo has described – in the brain, although its result is exposed to the muscles. That is why, has created a treatment aimed at the brain, with the idea of improving the functioning of nuclear functions and the muscles that are responsible for body stability, also known as the aftercare management, which is the basis of every movement that corresponds to the acquisition of every child during the first year of life, which allows you to lift your head, sit and stand . "
Castillo's aim, a member of the Colombian Neurology Society and the Psychoanalysis Society, is that patients with partial body parasis can recover their movements significantly. And it seems that it has been achieved, with the creation of a method based on electromagnetic waves which would improve the quality of life of patients with diseases such as thrombosis, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.
Magnetic stimulation is a procedure where a magnetic pulse is used that crosses the skull and reaches the cerebral cortex, which is the brain position where the maximum number of neurons are obtained presented, so that it produces adjustments to try to regain the abnormal brain function, as explained by Dr. Castle Infobae. Over 20 years ago, it is known that this is an unacceptable way of excellence for the treatment of refractory neurological and psychiatric diseases.
The neophiophological procedure can be applied in any area of the cerebral cortex. It includes installing a coil on the patient's skin, "which administers a magnetic pulse that goes through the skull and becomes an electric drive that prompts it neurons. " New technologies allow these waves to reach the bone, to adapt the cerebral cortex.
To check this, Castillo carried out a series of studies and tests in two protocols that have already been approved by the scientific community, and as a result of this procedure allows for the operation of the muscles responsible for stability or retardant control, an indispensable muscle function, returning to patients their ability to perform voluntary movements. And until now there was no treatment in the world.
So – he explained – the repetitive magnetic stimulus can adapt the neuronal brain response that is responsible for the movement and muscle action of upper and lower extremes. That is, exactly what he did with the patient who attended the John's Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, United States.
"Her husband, after a year and a half of the paralysis, looked at me on the recommendation of Argentina's neurologist, Pablo Celnik. In principle, I told us that, because there was no protocol in the world that was experienced in a patient with brain cease injury"Finally, Castillo started a treatment and, for seven months, the patient was subject to electromagnetic waves.
"After 34 sessions he managed to regain the body movement associated with stability and is done based on muscles, shoulders and back muscles.. That stability is very important and scientific it's called a sequential control. That is After a year and a half of the body having to boil, this patient restarted the movement associated with that later control"said the neurologist.
Previously, three neurologists Argentina, Leonardo Cohen, Pablo Celnik and Maximo Zimerman, have worked on the use of magnetic transitional stimuli with important contributions to neurology. What's new, therefore, is that Castillo has found that there is a way of acting the muscles associated with body stability, with the theory that can be achieved by implementing a path The brain that is called the back leaflet.
This is the first case of recorded success in the world where, by means of magnetic brain stimulation, a person with paralysis was able to regain the voluntary movement of a part affected by his body. However, as in any medical procedure, be effective but without a guarantee for 100% of patients, Castillo warned.
The scientific development, unique in the world, means a great increase in treating diseases that cause paralysis in the body. The neurologist Gabriel Castillo will therefore present the official results of the clinical case this weekend in the third edition of the International Brain Motion Conference, which will take place on February 23rd and 24th in Vancouver, Canada.
