Reflux question

Hi Dr. S -

I emailed you but am not sure if you have received it yet.

Do you normally treat refluxing IVJ's?

What about refluxing from a chest vein (axillary + lateral thoracic)? Is this something we could treat? Symptoms are debilitating - ultrasounds prove the reflux....need help very very much!

NEW: Dr. Zamboni's presentation on lymphatic discovery

Dr. Zamboni explains the importance of the most recent discovery from the University of Virginia, published in Nature: which is that a lattice of lymph vessels carrying immune cells are associated with veins flow which out along the cerebral veins into the extracranial veins.

"This is a very important article published in Nature. It is found that it is NOT true that the brain is segregated from the point of view immune system, because it ...

New discoveries show importance of veins

The new discoveries of the lymphatic vessels and immune cells in the CNS and the glymphatic clearance system of the sleeping brain are pointing to the importance of the veins that drain the brain.

Lymphatic vessel drainage runs next to veins, and requires open venous flow, since lymph cells end up in the jugular blood flow.
Really hoping these discoveries move CCSVI research forward.

Here's more on the connection--
