Update on the Use of Regenexx-SCP Stem Cells for Spontaneous CSF Leaking

Is there a CSF Leak stem cells treatment?   I had blogged previously on a chronic spinal leak patient with few options who was reporting more long lasting relief from a stem cell blood patch using Regenexx-SCP than previous treatments using fibrin glue. Here’s another update from the same patient:

“Hello Doctors Schultz & Centeno,

I am now 8 weeks post cervical epidural patching with SCP for intractable spontaneous spinal CSF leaking.

I continue to do quite well, although I am not doing quite as well as I was 4 weeks ago.

I typically can tolerate about 8 hours upright, non-stop!! from 5 am to 1 pm.  The headache escalates gradually the longer that I am up, reaching a moderate level by noon and moderately severe by 1 pm, necessitating a period of 2-3 hours horizontal before getting up again for about 2 more hours.  So my total upright time of about 10 hrs is a little less on average, and max headache is a bit worse, but I am still much more functional upright than I had been.  Using less Zofran for nausea, and no oxycodone.  Diabetes insipidus symptoms remain in remission.  Morning cortisols are still low.

I interpret this as ongoing CSF leaking but at slow rates.

I’m pretty thrilled!…Thank You”

The patient is thrilled because she’s never had this amount of dramatic relief using traditional blood patches or epidural patching with fibrin glue. She will need additional treatments and we remain encouraged about her progress.
