intracranial hypertension in pediatric MS

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27909013

Children with MS were compared to children with primary intracranial hypertension. Both groups had comparable cerebrospinal fluid opening pressure, which is the pressure reading taken at the start of a spinal tap. It does not mention a control group but presumably both the pediatric MS group and the pediatric primary intracranial hypertension group have higher opening pressures than a healthy group would.

If this is true for pediatric ...

noam alperin astronaut research

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/spe ... -eyeballs/
Something strange has been happening to people who stay too long in space: The backs of their eyeballs start to flatten. Spider-web-like marks called choroidal folds crisscross the thin layer of blood vessels and connective tissue that surround their retinas. Their vision goes blurry, their optic nerves become inflamed. The damage can last long after the astronauts return to Earth. And scientists haven't been able to explain why.

Noam ...

Hypoperfusion of the thalamus is associated with disability

This article does not come from the CCSVI world, but from mainstream neurology research. Of course, association does not imply causality, but just association is very interesting.

Hypoperfusion of the thalamus is associated with disability in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27865557

BACKGROUND: While gray matter (GM) perfusion abnormalities have been evidenced in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients ...

CONCLUSION: In relapsing remitting MS, perfusion abnormalities in thalamic regions contribute to ...

the thing about CCSVI

The thing about CCSVI is that it's obvious in retrospect. Not the link to MS, because that is unproven. But it is only basic logic that anything that can go wrong in the human body does go wrong at least for someone. Hearts get formed wrong, legs go wrong, red blood cells go wrong, retinas go wrong. So the idea that jugular veins can go wrong is only logical. The other obvious concept is that ...

Hemoglobins as new players in MS

Hemoglobins as new players in multiple sclerosis: metabolic and immune aspects
http://link.springer.com/article/10.100 ... 016-9845-7

Abstract
Basic science investigations and clinical observations in recent years indicate that hemoglobins (Hbs) may have important roles in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). These findings can be summarized as follows: 1- Erythrocyte fragility is higher in MS patients, the released free Hb damages blood-brain barrier, myelin basic protein and also triggers iron overload ...

Jugular Vein Obstruction Caused by Turning of the Head

Jugular Vein Obstruction Caused by Turning of the Head

by CA Gooding - ‎1983 - ‎Cited by 14 - ‎Related articles

Our studies clearly demonstrated that turning the head to one side results in torsion-compression of the ipsilateral internal jugular vein, which could have hemodynamically significant consequences. Though many collateral channels for venous drainage of the head are available to compensate, they may be severely compromised if resection, ...

Doctoral thesis. Study the Internal Jugular Veins dynamics

A first part of research project was to study the Internal Jugular Veins dynamics in MS patients compared with healthy controls using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography. The patients with MS showed a significantly reduction of wash-out rate compared to healthy controls .

steven novella's article on CCSVI

https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/up ... sclerosis/

Any thoughts? We are an echo chamber of denial and belief and that is why doctors, academics, scientists, and science communicators should engage with social media communities? The welcome mat is out for all comers.

Tooth fairy science? He had a valid point, about the need to establish foundational research before moving on to subsidiary concerns, but bringing in the tooth fairy comes across as mocking. ...
