It's almost all in Spanish, but there is a paragraph in English at the beginning of the message.

But what these doctors do not seem to know and what Fernandez Noda discovered was that this compression also affects the vertebral artery causing a decreased blood flow to the brain and hindering venous return in the cranial area, causing many of the degenerative processes of the central nervous system, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, cerebellar ataxia, epilepsy and some cases of Alzheimer's, among others.

I bet that neck injuries can cause problems with the blood flow through the arteries and veins and result in acquired CCSVI/CTNVS. I also believe that some people are born with these venous/arterial abnormalities.
sorry but i am not familiar with CTOS. what does this mean?
Cerebellar Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, discovered By Dr. Noda about 20 years ago.
I started a tread about this here

I am interested in the connections between CCSVI and Parkinson’s disease because my wife has Parkinson’s disease.
I initially thought that the vascular discoveries involved in CCSVI and MS would stimulate research into vascular aspects of PD. But that doesn’t seem to have happened. I know that doctors Haacke and Zivadinov are interested in this area, but from brief contacts with them and others I have found no planned or ongoing studies looking into the vascular aspects of PD. If anyone knows of any such studies, please let me know.
The fact that Dr Zamboni found that the Parkinson’s controls in his studies did not have CCSVI, does not mean that there is no vascular aspect of PD. Zamboni’s studies had to do with veins, not arteries. It may be that abnormal blood flow in arteries, not veins, is involved in PD. Or, it may be that a combination of venous and arterial problems, or some venous irregularity that Zamboni did not look at, is involved in PD.
Dr Noda’s position that Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases are caused by CTOS does support the vascular theory of PD. However, I have not found any other studies confirming Dr Noda’s work referred to in the magazine article cited by Nunzio at the beginning of this thread. Also, the Google translations of the magazine article cited by Nunzio, and the Google translation of Noda’s 1996 article “Neck and brain transitory vascular compression causing neurological complications. Results of surgical treatment on 1,300 patients” are very rough.
Here is a link to an abstract of Dr Noda’s CTOS study of 1300 patients: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10064369
Here is a link to a rough English language translation of Dr Noda’s entire study:

Destiny, the woman behind the Yahoo forum web site healingparkinsons (see link above) may know where to get the Spanish version of the study.
Does anyone have the link to the Facebook page on CTOS treatment in Chile? I would like to ask them if they do anything for Parkinson’s disease, and if they are aware of studies that support their approach. (I hope they are bilingual as my Spanish is poor.)
There are multi-millions of dollars being spent in Parkinson’s research, but apparently nothing is being spent to see if CCSVI, or an arterial version thereof, has some application to PD. If such research were done it may result in shedding more light on the vascular system’s effects on the brain. This would likely help both PD and MS patients.
