Is TVAM the new kid on the CCSVI block?

Hi all,

How many of you have heard of TVAM?

IT seems to be very similar to CCSVI, but from a marketing perspective its been cleverly dissaciated from MS, so that neuros turn a blind eye to it.

There seems to be one very well know Dr Arata performing the procedure in the states, with good results.

Any of you heard of this procedure?

Thanks,
zjac

Is the CCSVI procedure no longer available in Poland?

Hi all,

Sorry to create a new thread for this but things really are getting more complicated for some unknown reason.

As stated in a previous thread, im trying to contact clinics in Poland and Italy for the CCSVI procedure. I am CIS for MS and a doctor here in spain familiar with CTOS (very closely related to CCSVI) confirmed that blood flow in my right jugular was constricted by about 25%.

I have managed ...

Cerebral circulation time in MS is double that of normals

Full paper in pdf form.

Blinded study. Cerebral circulation and hypoxia in MS is not correlated with EDSS, disability, lesions or inflammation. It appears to precede all of this---

as Dr. Zamboni tweeted---now we need to understand how the venous system might be impacting this slowed cerebral blood flow in MS.

New article about Iron chelators sheds light upon MS

The idea of this article is that Iron can initiate a neurodegeneration which in turn activates microglia.

The importance of this is because NAWM consist mainly in activated microglia, and pre-active lesions, the first stage of a lesion development, are basically clusters of activated microglia.

Therefore according to this model, the MS chain of events would be:

Iron Accumulation -> Activated Microglia -> NAWM and pre-active lesions -> BBB breakdown -> T-cells and B-cells autoimmunity ...

Some MS attacks presented as a movie

While reading articles about MS, I have found one with some impressive movies. They were made during a year, taking a MRI picture each week. It is possible to see how lesions develop and heal. The man is reported to be symptoms-free during this period, but the images show that the disease never stops.

The article itself is also quite interesting, speaking mainly about MRI procedures and their uses.

But for me, the most interesting ...

For the last one year, I have been going through horrendous joint and muscle aches.

June last year. Thyroid tests showed TSH levels high (8+) and additional tests showed high thyroid antibodies.

Doctor put me on very mild thyroid supplements. I had some improvements after starting ...
