Also elucidated are the pitfalls of the Rodger and Traboulsee studies. Specifically, using individual IJV flow and percent stenosis method, instead of total IJV (and normalized IJV flow to arterial flow) and using fixed area for determining stenosis.
That is a signal piece of scientific thinking, normalizing to arterial blood flow. That was the stroke of genius that broke this controversy wide open.
In my own words: when you compare jugular blood flow to a norm established by using the same group of patients' arterial blood flow (which should be the same), "MS" patients with CCSVI have a lower jugular flow.
Can anybody get this link chronic-cerebrospinal-venous-insufficiency-ccsvi-f40/topic25432.html to Anne Kingston? I think she might want to know.
