Solution for some degenerative central nervous system.
Noda - is a perfect example. They correspond to the English expression Cerebellar Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and refers to pathological compression of the neurovascular structures that sometimes occur at the base of the neck. I will try to explain to the reader the simplest way possible: on both sides of the neck are two regions called the scalene triangle that is bounded by the scalenus anterior, scalenus medius and the rib (see picture). And in between are the subclavian artery, the brachial plexus and the vertebral arteries and internal mammary. Well, sometimes there is a neurovascular compression of these structures causing a malfunction of the nervous structures.
So much that most doctors know. 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 took the liberty of shortening the quote and correcting the translation on the bottom half.
The point I want to make is that, as you noticed, only arteries are mentioned; the reason is that few years ago nobody paid attention to the veins. But, as you know, in our body any artery is accompanied by a vein. The other point is that if you have external pressure, as the one applied by an hypertrophic muscle, the veins are going to be affected much more then the arteries due to their lower pressure and higher flexibility.
So my contention is that Dr. Noda, with his surgery, was improving the venous return, specially from the vertebral vein, and that is the real reason MS patients improved so much after his surgery.
