Stroke following PRP (article)

This is a disturbing article because it put a new risk for PRP, although very a very remote risk.  The doctor may have entered one of the vessels that communicated through the skull into the brain. Although these connections are usually small, we have known that such connections exist.  The post-treatment of necrosis also indicates that possibly too much PRP was injected into the scalp, enough to cause the necrosis, again an unusual happening.  The stroke may have been related to the use of fat cells in the mixture with the PRP but the connections from the scalp to the brain are clearly known anatomical vessels. Two unusual complications, both rare, suggest that there is more to what happened than just a standard PRP treatment.  This was published in the Journal of Neurology and Stroke (Click to enlarge the page)
