She developed MS while on dialysis? Did they use the jugular as an access site?
Yes, the comparisons between CCSVI and dialysis have been because the use of the jugular as an access site for dialysis can lead to outflow obstruction in that jugular.
I would think that any toxins in the body due to the chronic kidney disease, combined with any outflow obstructions of extracranial drainage and subsequent blood-brain barrier breakdown, would be a very bad combination.
She had also been on dialysis for ten years, which means that if MS or CCSVI are chronic conditions there would have been time for them to develop (you wouldn't see MS develop the day after ligating both veins, but maybe in susceptible individuals you would see MS develop ten years after ligating both veins).
thanks for the link, Anonymoose, very interesting.
The woman also had dialysis encephalopathy but I don't know anything about that disease.
