Pretransplant Tests And Procedures:
The stem cell treatment centers in USA puts patient through a series of tests and procedures to assess the general health, the status of their condition, and to ensure that they are physically prepared for the transplant. The evaluation might take several days or even more depending on the condition of the patient.
Also, a surgeon or radiologist will implant a long thin tube called an intravenous catheter into a large vein in the chest or neck. The catheter that is often called a central line usually remains in place for the duration of the treatment. The transplant team will use this central line to infuse the transplanted stem cells, other medications, and blood products into the body.
