    Jamil, I probably won't be able to go. But, I think that many people on carecure would follow any information that you post concerning your experience. Wise.
  2. Dr Young, Trying to retain things you have read and moving forward each day to learn more , sometimes becomes a circle. My sci or Ischemia in the T-7-8 caused by an AVM left undetected for an extended period of time has left narrowing of spinal cord and demyelination of axons. I am in touch with Jordan and if acceped, I plan to travel to Jordan for the adult stem cell. I know nothing is a gimmi, but it is the best of the 50 lines or so going on at this time. My way of thinking is the less severe the sci the bettter chance reconnecting axons. I must try. Any advise on the matter.

    Jamil, I am not sure that the ASIA classification system is really all that predictive for recovery in people with TM or ischemia of the spinal cord. The definition for "complete" spinal cord injury in people with traumatic spinal cord injury is loss of anal sensation and sphincter control. AVM in particular is very difficult to predict recovery from. I have seen patients who were almost completely paralyzed for many years recover rapidly in hospital and walk out, after embolization of their AVM. I used to do evoked potential monitoring for AVM cases and had participated in a 1985 study that was one of the first articles of embolization of spinal AVM's. However, you should benefit from the same kinds of therapies that are now being developed for spinal cord injury.
