Neurosurgeon Blasts Rumor That Bret Michaels' Health Scare Is Publicity Stunt

Learning about the report, Dr. Joseph Zabramski states, 'For anyone to speculate that this was not a life-threatening medical emergency is absolutely incorrect.'

Rocker Bret Michaels' neurosurgeon has reacted strongly to internet reports suggesting the "Poison" star faked the seriousness of his recent brain haemorrhage and stroke, insisting the health crises were deadly serious. Dr. Joseph Zabramski, who saved Michael's life in May, has responded to reports the emergencies were part of a publicity stunt with an angry message posted on his patient's MySpace page.

Calling the rumors "erroneous, false and irresponsible", Dr. Zabramski rages, "The fact is, the subarachnoid hemorrhage (sic) that Mr. Michaels suffered was very real, and very serious, as was the T.I.A (warning stroke) and P.F.O., which will be operated on later this year."

"A subarachnoid hemorrhage is a life-threatening, neurosurgical emergency that requires an extensive work-up and management in the ICU to prevent re-bleeding and manage the complications associated with the initial hemorrhage. For anyone to speculate that this was not a life-threatening medical emergency is absolutely incorrect."

"Between 15 and 20 per cent of patients die as a result of the initial hemorrhage, and only approximately 50 per cent of those that survive have a good outcome. Recovery from subarachnoid hemorrhage is determined primarily by the size of the initial bleeding episode."

"Mr. Michaels quick reaction to the hemorrhage and immediate medical attention that followed aided in his ability to make a strong recovery and stop the brain hemorrhage before it caused severe and permanent brain damage. Mr. Michaels is fortunate to be alive after all that he has been through. Bret is truly one of the most determined individuals I have ever met when it comes to an attempt at making a full recovery."
