How are blood stem cells infused during a Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation?

The process of infusion of stem cells is a significantly life-changing moment for patients and their families. We are often asked about how we reinfuse blood stem cells into patients during the transplant procedure.
.

It is a common myth that a stem cell transplant is an operation where we surgically replace the bone marrow of the patient or inject the stem cells directly back into the bone. But the actual procedure itself is more like a blood transfusion, and not as dramatic as it may seem.
.

Stem cells are slowly injected back into the patient’s bloodstream, and these stem cells are then able to find their way back into the bone marrow to start regenerating and making new blood cells.
.

The pictures below show the process of infusion of stem cells using cells which had been stored in advance and re-infused into a patient.
