I recently found an old Cervical MRI report that I found interesting (possibly CTOS/CTNVS/CCSVI related). Dated: Jan. 6th 2003 - "The focal area of increased signal noted within the cervical cord posterior to the C3/4 level is again noted and has not changed significantly when compared to prior exam of 8-7-2002. No significant cord enlargement or enhancment occurs at this level. As noted on the previous examination, a small focal posterial protrusion of C4/5 inverteratebral disc occurs just to the left of midline and has not changed significantly since the prior study. A more prominent right posterior osteophyte and disc protrusion is noted at the C5/6 level which appears to impress on the right anterior aspect of the cervical cord. This is also similar to the prior exam. There is generalized congenital spinal canal narrowing from C3 to the top of C7 also similar to the previous study. No significant abnormal areas of gadolinium enhancement noted. No suspicious signal changes in the imaged bony structures."
Greg Buchanan (not a Dr.) was talking about all this in his newsletter back in March 2004 http://www.upcspine.com/news_vol2_0304.htm
What amazes me is that not "ONE" neuro. (I've had a few) has ever brought up any possible alternative treatments - just DRUGS and followup appts. with them $$$.
"MR VENOGRAM FINDINGS 5-24-2010: The superior sagittal sinus with appears to drain predomininatly on the right. The transverse sinuses are relavetly symmetric in size. The sigmoid sinuses and jugular bulbs are relatively symmetric in size. At the base of the brain, the internal jugular veins are well visualized. At the level of the cranical/cervical junction junction on the right, the internal jugular on the right takes on a flattened morphology with respect to flow charactists. This segment is small in size being less than 10mm. Throughout the neck, the internal jugular veins have an ellipsoid morphology. The junction of the internal jugular veins with the subclavian veins is normal in apperance. There is slight asymmetry of the internal juglar veins with the right being larger than the left."
The more we learn, the more questions we have...
