Causes

Thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease) is caused by vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels).

The blood vessels of the hands and feet are especially affected, becoming constricted or totally blocked. This reduces blood flow to the hand and foot tissues, resulting in pain and eventually damage.

Thromboangiitis obliterans affects about 6 of every 10,000 people. It almost always affects men ages 20 to 40 who have a history of smoking or chewing tobacco.

The condition may also be associated with a history of Raynaud's disease.

Stem Cell Facts Buerger's Disease

All six patients in a recent clinical trial using stem cells saw an increase in the heart's strength and blood supply, suggesting the stem cells had differentiated into heart muscle and blood vessel cells.

This disorder is very uncommon in children, but may occur in those with autoimmune diseases.

Symptoms

  • Hands or feet may be pale, red or bluish
  • Hands or feet may feel cold
  • Pain in the hands and feet is
    • Acute, severe
    • Burning or tingling
    • Often occurring at rest
  • Pain in the legs, ankles, or feet when walking (intermittent claudication)
    • Often located in the arch of the foot
  • Skin changes or ulcers on hands or feet

Note: Symptoms may worsen with exposure to cold or with emotional stress. Usually, two or more limbs are affected.

Medical Tests

The hands or feet may show enlarged, red, tender blood vessels. The pulse in the affected hands or feet may be low or absent.

The following tests may show blockage of blood vessels in the affected hands or feet:
  • An angiography/arteriography of the extremity
  • A Doppler ultrasound of the extremity

Blood tests for other causes of vasculitis and inflammation may be done. Rarely, in cases where the diagnosis is unclear, a biopsy of the blood vessel is done.

Conventional Treatment

There is no cure for thromboangiitis obliterans. The goal of treatment is to control symptoms.

To prevent amputation, the patient must stop using tobacco and should avoid cold temperatures and other conditions that reduce circulation to the hands and feet.

Applying warmth and exercising gently may help increase circulation.

Cutting the nerves to the area (surgical sympathectomy) may help control pain. Aspirin and vasodilators may also be used. Amputation of the extremity may be necessary if infection or extensive tissue death occurs.

Stem Cell Therapy

Numerous clinical trials are going on all over the world, including India using stem cells from various sources.

We, at ReeCure offer you therapy using stem cells using our proprietary technology.

These stem cells could be of various types viz. Hematopoietic (CD 34+), Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that are processed and isolated using Good Manufacturing (GMP) and Good Lab Practices (GLP) and in accordance with AABB standards.

After years of extensive research and systematic compilation and collation of relevant data (through its research division), ReeLabs is now supremely confident of not only reversing the disease process of the affected patient but also improving the quality of life manifold. Stem cells produced by ReeLabs are completely safe, non-toxic, easy to administer and totally devoid of side effects with an excellent probability of homing and engraftment with parent cell, tissue or organ. The eminent panel of scientists and researchers at ReeLabs work exhaustively to design accurate treatment protocols that have yielded excellent results in most cases.

These stem cells are procured from various sources including bone marrow, cord blood fat etc. as per the requirement of the patient.

Patients of Buerger's disease have improved tremendously using stem cells due to the possibility of regeneration of impaired vasculature and circulation to the affected organ.

Studies have shown that there are various angiogenic factors that develop new vessel formation are present in stem cells. Hence, infusion of stem cells have induced new blood vessel formation of the afflicted organ and prevented progress to gangrene and amputation.
