CCSVI and Ventriculomegaly?

Postby escape_goat » Wed Oct 14, 2009 9:02 pm

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. :)

I don't know if it's relevant, but you may want to read the following thread about normal pressure hydrocephalus.

NHE has it read that thread for certain!
Dr Eliot Frohman was the person who was making the connection between NPH and this new material. If I were you I might consider trying to see him specifically...........
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
