A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

upper jugular stenoses vs lower jugular stenoses

I feel like this is an important aspect that may be being disregarded. Here are two research articles published this year that looked specifically at patients WITHOUT multiple sclerosis:

http://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/AJR.15.14689

and a quote from each:
Both observers found stenosis in the IJVs with fair agreement. Most stenoses were located in the upper IJV segments.
Areas of narrowing greater than 50% ...

Multiple sclerosis and primary vascular dysregulation (Flammer syndrome).

Abstract
BACKGROUND:
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the CNS of still unknown aetiology. Flammer syndrome (FS) encompasses a set of symptoms and signs that are primarily but not solely related to the dysregulation of blood ...

vascular problems also found in the retina

The retina and the optic nerve are the only extensions of the CNS that can be observed non-invasive. The retina in MS is known to degenerate and is unknown how, as there is no myelin on the retina and current MS models do not explain this problem.

Two new articles have found that retinal degeneration is linked to blood flow problems in the eye.

I would challenge any supporter of the autoimmune model to explain ...

blood coagulation factors linked again to MS

This time, the factors linked to MS are prothrombin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrombin) and factor X (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factor_X). Interestingly, PPMS and NMO patients did not show this profile.

Prothrombin and factor X are elevated in multiple sclerosis patients.

Animal models have implicated an integral role for coagulation factors in neuroinflammatory diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) beyond their role in hemostasis. ...

Balo concentric sclerosis linked to blood flow

A new interesting article linking blood flow and MS. In this case, the focus in Balo concenctic sclerosis. The article is this one:

Morphogenesis of the demyelinating lesions in Baló’s concentric sclerosis
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 7716300081

In this article, the authors speak very little about RRMS but they say some interesting things:

Reduced blood flow in the white matter in MS

Of special pathogenetic significance for the relapsing–remitting MS, is ...

Go Fund Me again...

This is cross-posted from General Discussion, because some only read the CCSVI forum. Plus, I am inordinately proud of my prototype...

I have decided on the RGB Shades which was a successful Kickstarter project. I am nearly ready to start using them. I have bought an Arduino and a little daughter board with an accelerometer and gyroscope on it. There is also a thermometer on the same chip but I don't think I'll need it. ...

girl with anti-MOG and venous sinus trombosis

Everything is together in this case. Venous sinus trombosis, auto-anitbodies (anti-MOG) and CSF hypertension.
