Intrathecal injection of
human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of
basilar artery dissection: a case report
Basilar artery dissection is a
rare occurrence, and is significantly associated with morbidity and mortality.
To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of basilar artery
dissection treated with mesenchymal stem cells.
We present the case of a
17-year-old Korean man who was diagnosed with basilar artery dissection.
Infarction of the bilateral pons, midbrain and right superior cerebellum due to
his basilar artery dissection was partially recanalized by intrathecal
injection of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells. No
immunosuppressants were given to our patient, and human leukocyte antigen
alloantibodies were not detected after cell therapy.
This case indicates that
intrathecal injections of mesenchymal stem cells can be used in the treatment
of basilar artery dissection.
