Continuation of Zivadinov/Zamboni study--since the other thread was locked. Which is really too bad, because this all belongs together (please reconsider, Jimmy?)
There has been much press in Italy today on the study---all of the regional and national papers and online medical sites had articles like this one in
A CONFERENCE ON DISEASE IN BOLOGNA NEUROVASCULARhttp://www.medicinalive.com/neurologia/ ... csvi-cura/
Multiple sclerosis, a U.S. study
confirms the hypothesis of Zamboni
The research, conducted with the University of Buffalo, highlights a relationship between the narrowing of the jugular veins (Ccsvi) and multiple sclerosis
The narrowing of the jugular veins known as Ccsvi causes a slowing of blood flow in the brain that might underlie the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. , According to a preliminary study published in the journal BMC Medicine, which seems to confirm the theories of the Italian doctor Paolo Zamboni. This and other research will be discussed at the annual meeting of the International Society for Neurovascular Disease, ongoing until tomorrow in Bologna with the participation of over 400 researchers from around the world.
The study, conducted in collaboration with the University of Buffalo, has revealed that due to the obstruction of venous typical Ccsvi reduces cerebral blood flow: the 24 subjects examined in this pilot study, 18 were overlapping and Ccsvi sclerosis multiple, and they were young Italians and Americans with an average age under 40 years. "This result - says Zamboni - clearly indicates that the phenomenon of degeneration of the axon (the central component of the nerve), which is ultimately the event that leads to disability, is negatively affected by the malfunction of the veins that occurs in Ccsvi course. " The first act of the meeting was the approval by a consensus conference attended by 40 experts from the International Society for Neurovascular Disease and seven other major national and international companies, practical guidelines for the investigation screening Ccsvi: "This share - Zamboni said in a statement - will soon lead to an improvement in scientific publications, so enriched by the experiences that have since been gained in various centers in the world."
Multiple Sclerosis and Ccsvi: new confirmation and hope for a cure
Cynthia Iannacci in Neurology .
A new study just published in the journal BMC Medicine seems to confirm the relationship between the onset of multiple sclerosis and Ccsvi ( venous insufficiency Cerebro-Spinal Chronic), which is a malformation characterized by narrowing of the jugular veins that lead to a reduction in flow blood to the brain, responsible for the symptoms of multiple sclerosis itself. The scientific work was made possible thanks to the collaboration between the department of neurology and neuroimaging of the 'University of New York based in Buffalo, whose director is Professor Robert Zivadinov, the center for vascular diseases' s University of Ferrara directly Paolo Zamboni, and the "Good 'of the Bellaria Hospital in Bologna, directed by Fabrizio Salvi.
The data confirm the hypothesis of scientific Zamboni: in 75% of the cases studied, was identified by presence of the two diseases .
In particular the research has looked at 24 patients younger than 40 years, 18 of whom had a match between Ccsvi and Multiple Sclerosis.
"A further given that clearly shows how the degeneration of the axon (the central component of the nerve), a phenomenon that leads to disability, is negatively affected by the malfunction of the veins that occurs in the course of Ccsvi"
Zamboni said, among the first in the world to this hypothesis and found that time is fighting for recognition of their scientific work. Surgery, which aims to widen the veins may in fact be the solution, care malts that many expect. Also recently Nicoletta Mantovani , suffering from multiple sclerosis for years decided to undergo surgery through a method known Zamboni. (note from Cheer--Nicoletta Mantovani is Luciano Pavarotti's widow, the head of the Italian CCSVI Association, and a very vocal advocate.)
Of all the things we discussed during the annual conference of the International Society for Neurovascular Disorders being held in Bologna, during which they were recognized as official guidelines for the investigation of screening for Ccsvi. Zamboni concludes:
"This share will soon lead to an improvement in scientific publications, so enriched by the experiences that have since been gained in various centers worldwide."
