Remember that in CCSVI we are discussing intraluminal abnormalities, such as valves or septums or webs, not stenosis of the veins themselves. The Cleveland Clinic autopsy study found the same percentage of vein stenoses or narrowing in MS patients as in healthy controls. Any theories such as self-contorting of veins to maintain pressure or that the lowered perfusion of MS means lowered volume of flow leaving the brain means narrowed veins are not consistent with the Cleveland Clinic autopsy study that showed equal degrees of vein wall stenosis in healthy controls and MS patients. What the autopsy study did show was a much higher percentage of intraluminal abnormalities in MS patients.
If you look at the science, you will find none of these you mentioned work every time, only for some. And while we are here CCSVI is the same, it has not worked for me.shucks wrote:I am just curious. Campath, cytoxin, and HSCT seem to work, according to science, but I cant find anything on ccsvi.
