New research on CSF, 3rd ventricle, coagulation in CCSVI

New research breakdown for September 2014--from my blog:

It's been a busy month for MS research. I wanted to give a brief overview of the new publications coming out in vascular journals, linking CCSVI and MS to slowed cerebral blood flow, changes in cerebrospinal fluid flow and coagulation factors.

As much as neurologists and immunologists continue to claim this exploration is dead, finito, over---there are still dozens of publications in press or being published which ...

CSF flow is abnormal in MS

I don't know if this is related to the study of Fonar and Dr. Rosa, but sounds similar. No amplitude difference found, but irregular timing was found instead.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow Dynamics in Multiple Sclerosis Patients through Phase Contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25233279

Abstract
We studied cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow dynamics at the cervical level in association with internal jugular veins (IJV) flow for 92 patients with multiple sclerosis ...

Venous embryology

http://www.phlebolymphology.org/2013/01 ... onditions/

Useful for understanding how the deep veins, including the jugulars, form and how that process can go wrong.
Among the image examples are two by Zamboni and Galleoti.

interview of Prof Farina of Italy

http://mediterranews.org/2014/09/sclero ... no-farina/
1) Professor, his experience in the diagnosis of CCSVI, in what percentage of patients with multiple sclerosis she has so far found CCSVI?

"I can not disclose the precise figure being the result of a recent work that is going to be submitted to an international journal. I say, however, that is more than 80%. "

Google Translate is necessary for those of us who do ...

'Healthy' Diets Don't Seem to Reduce MS Risk

http://www.medpagetoday.com/MeetingCove ... term=Daily

In fact, it was the unhealthy typical Western diet that showed a tendency towards being associated with a reduced risk of MS.
It was a vast study, looking at 185,000 women to suss out the ones who did go on to develop MS.

It seems possible that those who were in the preclinical stages of MS might have already taken steps to eat healthier in hopes ...

Where are the better clinic...Italy or Poland?

Hi all,

I know Zamboni is Italian, but ive always heard more about Polish clinics, possibly because more procedures have been carried out there?

What are your opinions?

PREMISE negative results

Somehow I missed this. It looks like bad news, though now the question is why some people are responders while others are not.


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24975855

OBJECTIVE:
We report the results of the investigation of safety and efficacy of venous angioplasty in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with findings of extracranial venous anomalies, considered hallmarks of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), in a 2-phase study (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01450072).

METHODS:
Phase 1 was ...

Limitations (exercise, movement, etc) after CCSVI

Hi all,

I am still CIS for MS (had my first and only relapse back in May 2013), and I still have CCSVI in the back of my mind. I had my blood flow looked at by a doctor that used to perform CTOS (cutting of the scalene muscle) who confirmed that i had reduced blood flow on the right hand side (same side I have most brain lesions, and same side where I had ...

New Study: Inadequate cerebral blood flow in MS

The study out of NYU looks at cerebrovascular reactivity, or CVR. CVR is how the brain reacts or responds with blood flow when there is vasodilation. This function is extremely important, as neurons need adequate blood flow to provide glucose and oxygenation. Without this response of adequate cerebral bloodflow (CBF), the brain will not function properly, and neurons can potentially die.
