Minimally Invasive Brain Repair for Cerebral Palsy

History:

Keyi Tang was a 10 year old girl, when she was admitted on January 17th 2011, to Beijing Puhua International Hospital for treatment. During her delivery, she was subject toanoxic brain damage, which led to her condition.

After one month of treatment in Puhua International Hospital, she was discharged on February 15th 2011.

Medical Condition Prior to Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (Functional Stereotaxy) for Cerebral Palsy

Before receiving Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for her cerebral palsy (CP), little Patient Keyi’s condition was poor. Her neck was so weak that she couldn’t control her head, and her head often tilted to one side. The mobility of her joints was quite limited, and she had difficulty in doing simple activities (like standing or walking).

Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy

After admission, several medical protocols were applied, including stereotactic treatment to repair the injured neural cells, medical improvement of cerebral circulation, nutrition and metabolism, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), rehabilitation therapy, as well as symptomatic and supportive treatment.

Medical Condition after Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery for Cerebral Palsy

Patient Keyi’s overall condition improved remarkably.

Her whole body was stronger compared with her condition at she admission. She could manage to hold her head in a fixed position for a much longer period of time. An evident improvement was seen in the mobility of her joints, and she could do simple activities (like standing and walking) much better than before treatment.  With some assistance, she was able to walk about 20m.  The probabilities are high that further improvements will be seen in Keyi Tang.
