Hi there... I've been dx'd with MS for 6 years or so now. When I had my first MRI, they noted mild stable ventriculomegaly. This is sort of a congenital issue that hasn't caused me any symptoms. My understanding of ventriculomegaly is that it can be caused by impaired drainage of CSF from the brain during fetal development, and I can't help but wonder if this might be related to the drainage issues described in CCSVI.
Does anybody know whether the mechanism that might cause impaired drainage of CSF might be related to the impaired blood drainage in CCSVI? Or are they two totally unrelated things?
Might just be a total coincidence, but if the two were connected, it would make CCSVI make even more sense to me. I am really excited about this research.
