Types of Bone Marrow Transplant

The cost of the transplant depends upon the type of transplant one has to undergo. Below we have explained the types of BMT treatment approaches:

1. Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant:

In this type of BMT, the patient’s own body’s healthy blood forming stem cells are collected and processed to replace with the unhealthy and diseased blood cells.

2. Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplant:

In this type of BMT, the healthy blood forming cells are taken from a donor who could be a sibling, parents or someone unrelated.

Depending on the relation of the donor and matching of tissue, Allogenic BMT is further classified into 3 types. They are;

a) Complete Matched Sibling Donor BMT: In this, the donor is most likely to be a brother or sister of the patient. These are often a complete match to patient’s tissue.

b) Haplo-identical BMT: It is a type of Allogenic BMT in which parents are usually a donor to the patient since they are a half match for their children. In cases, where a complete match is not found and the patients do not have any sibling, the expert surgeon considers parents to be a donor and perform Haplo-identical BMT.

c) Unrelated Donor BMT: In cases, where there is no sibling and parents are also not a match for the patient, then Un-related Donor BMT is the solution, in which donor who is unrelated to you is made available for the transplant from the Donor Match Registry.

Reasons to undergo Bone Marrow Transplantation Surgery

Frequently Asked Questions and Patient concerns:

1. What is a bone marrow transplant?

A bone marrow transplant is a treatment that replaces an unhealthy marrow with a healthy one.

It is indicated when the bone marrow in the human body is not healthy enough to carry out its normal functions due to any disorder or cancer of blood cells.

The consulting surgeon will review your reports and decide on the best suited option for your treatment.

We at MedicoExperts, ensure that you get nothing but the best diagnosis and treatment for your ailment. Be assured to get best treatment advice from the chosen best surgeons in India.

In a stem cell transplant, the stem cells are collected from the patients’ own blood and used; while in the case of a bone marrow transplant, the bone marrow is extracted from the donor and injected to the patient who has undergone high-dose therapy.

Besides the higher risk of infection due to a stressed immune system, the commonly noticed side effects are but not limited to,

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Low levels of platelets, which can decrease how well blood can clot
  • Low levels of red blood cells, which can cause anemia
  • Diarrhea

Recovery after Bone Marrow Transplant is long and tiresome, both physically and emotionally for the patient and family. Initial 3 months are critical enough for the recovery of the patients.

They need complete monitoring during this span since there are high chances of complications and risk of rejection of the transplant. The patient may complain of fatigue, weakness and is unable to concentrate for the first few weeks post-surgery, however full recuperation may take up to 1-2 years.

An estimated stay of around 2-3 months is required in India for the Bone Marrow Transplant Surgery and complete recovery, post which the patient can fly back to his/her country.

After a complex and prolonged BMT treatment in India, it is justified to be anxious and return to a daily routine to seek normalcy.

However, once you are done with the transplant, you should be diverting all your energy in regaining your strength and stamina. Staying positive will help you heal better. It will also be advisable to avoid crowded public places, as you will be prone to infection due to lowered immunity functions. Generally, it takes about 3-6 months for a patient to feel better and stable, however, this also depends on certain environmental factors like cleanliness, etc.

BMT procedure is a treatment associated with a number of risks and complexities. It is, therefore, crucial to know if the treatment is suitable for you. BMT procedure is recommended in cases when;

  • All other treatment options undergone by the patients have failed
  • There is a higher risk of relapse or the disease to return without a transplant.
  • The benefits of Bone Marrow Transplant prevail over the risks and complications associated with the surgery
  • The patient who is in otherwise good condition and has matched stem cell available from either a sibling or parents and family member.
