I'm working to print up EVERYTHING from the prior 45 pages. I ran into trouble on page 37, your post on April 14th. The following links ----
I couldn't get this link to work:
Zamboni et al 2009 The value of cerebral doppler haemodynamics in the assessment of ms
Though this paper was published in January of '09 the research was actually done before that of the Dec '08 paper: it was the second large doppler study.
It used 109 MS patients and 177 controls including people with OND and other vascular diseases, thus giving the opportunity for the controls to have issues that might make them prone to have problems with the venous system. Again, all MS patients had 2 abnormal findings and controls had one or less. Because the controls were people who we might suspect could have issues with venous drainage and it remained true that MSers were the only ones that had 2 or more abnormalities, and because this was a large study, it becomes more likely this is a pathognomic pattern for MS; unique to MSers.
In fact the total number of tests performed on normal people, 5 tests times 177 people=871 normal and only 24 abnormal findings. The test totals on the MSers were 288 normal and 257 abnormal tests. Huge differences in venous function overall wsith the MS population failing test after test while it was rare for others to have an issue
and this link didn't work either:
Raised venous pressure as a factor in mutiple sclerosis
So far I have a huge stack of stuff to read. I really don't want to try reading the Schelling paper again, I think it really bogged me down before and I would like to try and just read the REALLY good parts. Ken
Also, any chance this impacts blood pressure? Kim has has low blood pressure for a long time.
