No parent wants to be faced with a dreaded disease in their child such as a childhood cancer or other blood related disorders that do not respond to traditional therapies. Lymphomas, leukemia, and other cancers and diseases are difficult to treat in children. Many times, the only therapy that will alleviate a condition is a bone marrow transplant.
A bone marrow transplant simply includes replacing the ineffective stem cells that reside within the bone marrow with a bone marrow transfusion that comes either from the child, or a donor match. Sant Joan de Deu Children’s Hospital in Barcelona, Spain, with over 150 years in the treatment of childhood diseases and cancers is internationally recognized for its specialized approach to both the physical and emotional needs of children who must undergo a bone marrow transplant.
Bone marrow transplantation is not without risk both physically and emotionally. Leukemia, myeloma, and lymphoma are all cancers and start in the lymphatic system. Resistant anemias and other diseases also may require transplantation. There are many steps in preparation for the procedures, and much care is needed afterward to prevent side effects and rejections of the infusions.
Also called stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplants are rejected and fail most commonly when the donor is an individual outside the child’s own family or when using stem cells that are not gleaned from a child’s own bone marrow. Sant Joan de Deu Children’s Hospital has a high success rate.
The body can identify these transplanted infused cells as ‘invaders’ and seek to reject them and rid the body of them. It can also take weeks or months for the newly injected stem cells to start working as they should, so a child can need hospital time, carefully monitoring, and possibly antibiotics immediately after a bone marrow transplantation.
The stem cells that are harvested are not directly injected into the bone marrow but instead into a child’s bloodstream. Children can experience fever, chills, bruising, and other side effects immediately afterward.
Bone marrow transplantation is not an easy procedure, and all parents should seek out the finest care possible. Saint Joan de Deu Children’s Hospital is known internationally for its experience in this procedure and welcomes all international patients. The success rate is world-renowned.
The care of children needing a bone marrow transplant as well as the care needed emotionally for both the children and their parents is available at Sant Joan de Deu Children’s Hospital. This facility addresses both pre-transplantation and post-transplantation needs of both parents and children with empathy, and knowledge. The years of experience have led to excellence in bone marrow transplantation in children.
