Yes, they are. Dr Haacke has made mention of the need to expand examination of the vascular system for neurologic disorders beyond MS. And hear is what Dr Zivadinov said in the webbinar hosted by the National MS Society, about other disorders:
"...iron is storing not just in MS patient but in Alzheimer, in Parkinson, and in normal people. My personal interest in this new type of research is really beyond MS because I would like to understand the venous function of the central nervous system in relation to aging, in relation to number of neurodegenerative diseases, and my research on iron might be very helpful. Now, the reason, one of the principal reasons why the iron is building in certain structures, nobody knows really the answer but it seems to be that the highest concentration of the ferritin receptors is physiologically present in those structures, and so well, there is excessive iron, that there it's a primary secondary phenomenon or result of, you know, just mitochondria dysfunction and oxidative stress."

Last Friday my sister visited Dr.Castillo in Madrid, who performs surgery to correct CTOS. I was there with her talking to him. As he explained to us, his theory is the one developed by Dr.Fernández Noda.
In the last 20 years, he has found that 70% of the MS patients that he has evaluated using eco-doppler technology, have a vascular CTOS, where the muscle scalene push the vascular structure (especially the vertebral artery) and causes blood flow problems to and from the brain.
To solve the problem, they perform surgery to cut part of the scalene muscle to liberate the opresion to the vascular structure. Many patients have been treated using this technique, I tracked and talked to some of them and the results are astonishing for most of them.
I don't know if this doctor's theory is correct, buy I think he is onto something. Besides, he seemed honest. He checked my sister's neck and diagnosed a clear CTOS, but he didn't recommend surgery as she is in good shape and has no symptoms of ms at the moment (dx 10 years ago).

No, I don't. My sister does. Many patients are reporting excellent results from CTOS surgery in Spain. I believe that some people have jugular veins stenosis, others CTOS and some have both conditions. Probably that's the reason why there was a group that tested negative at Buffalo Study; this group should have been tested for CTOS.

I cannot remember what happened exactly, but the surgeries were stopped.
