I like this new paper and will be excited to read the whole thing. We knew that some of Dr Zamboni's patients were being followed at JNI, wobbly is one of them.
There are at least 2 treatment groups, the liberation group which was reported on recently which included 18 month results on 65 patients; 35 RRMS, 20 SPMS, 10 PPMS.
The second treatment group wobbly is in was being followed at JNI with their 3T MRI. It was a small American contingent that was operated on in Italy then followed at JNI. I wonder if there is yet another treated group being followed?
THIS is the kind of data that will make the case:
Compared with the HCs, the CCSVI-MS patients showed a significantly lower net CSF flow (p=0.027) which was highly associated with the VHISS (r=0.8280, r2=0.6855; p=0.0001). This study demonstrates that venous outflow disturbances in the form of CCSVI significantly impact on CSF pathophysiology in patients with MS
the abstract basically says that the worse the CCSVI anomalous blood flow (they did the doppler tests and scored the flow) the greater the abnormality of cerebrospinal fluid flow dynamics.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
