Patient Ebrahim Mohamed was admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital with Chief Complaints of “movement disorder and loss of motor function and sensation (legs), loss of control of urine and stool 3 months post traffic accident,” in which he suffered a spinal cord injury.
Prior to receiving spinal cord reconstruction surgery for Spinal Cord Injury, the patient’s general physical condition was relatively good above the level of the injury. Muscle strength was 5/5 in arms, 0/5 in legs. Muscle tone was correspondingly decreased in the legs. Sensations were absent below T5. Anus reflex was absent.
After admission, the patient completed his clinical investigation. On Nov 9th, 2015, the patient received intra-spinal surgical exploration via posterior-medial approach followed by surgical repair of the spinal cord. The operation went smoothly and the following treatments were offered after operation: fluid infusion, infection prevention and nerve nutrition, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and physical rehabilitation training.
On Nov 17th 2015, the patient was given Neural Growth Factor Therapy via lumbar puncture. On Nov 19th 2015, he received repair of a bedsore (stasis ulcer).
