jugular veins are 10% narrower in MS than controls

Source: https://link.springer.com/article/10.11 ... 017-0008-3

Background

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. As an association between MS and reduced cerebral venous blood drainage was hypothesised, our aim was to compare the size of the jugular foramina in patients with MS and in control subjects.

Results

The mean diameter of the right foramen in patients with MS (6.3 ± 1.6 mm) was 10% smaller than that of ...

Jugular anomalies again (June 2017)

I had to put "again" together with the date, because would look otherwise like the old Zamboni reports.

Jugular Anomalies in Multiple Sclerosis Are Associated with Increased Collateral Venous Flow

http://www.ajnr.org/content/early/2017/05/25/ajnr.A5219

Some people can see it, some others cannot at all ... And by the way, we have a relationship with the gray matter damage. Maybe gray matter damage produces white matter damage, which produces NAWM, which produces an ...

Caution and Concerns - Minocycline and Antibiotics For MS

HI Friends please read
http://ccsviinms.blogspot.com.au/2017/0 ... e-and.html

Minocycline is believed to hamper reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, potentially creating intracranial hypertension and vision loss. In fact, doctors know about this side effect, and it has been well documented. For someone with already slowed venous flow and build-up of CSF (as a patient with CCSVI), this side effect could be even more harmful.

Simvastatin trial linked to vascular system

Professor John Greenwood at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology investigates the potential benefit of statins in auto-immune diseases and is following the current trial of statins in MS. He says:

"This study suggests, however, that the beneficial effect might be on vascular function rather than the immune system"

Wonderful thoughts (Canadian Trial & ISNVD 2017 Dr Dake

Listening to Dr. Dake's sober summary of the Canadian trial that was “controversial” gave me so much hope.

Think about it. All of this data is wonderful. The big picture is that Canada stepped up to study this! Yay!

The next biggest news is that 100’s of brave Canadians with MS want blood flow restored to their sick MS brains.
That is the biggest news.
Think about this. 100’s of folks got PTA. 100’s more ...

Cure for MS conditionally found!

April 1, 2017 -- The Government of Italy has announced the discovery that northern Italian proctologists have conditionally found a cure for MS!

It is a drug called natkingcolezumob, a monotonic antipode snakeoilvendor.

It seems it may only work on people who have had the liberation procedure in the last five years. So I think I qualify.

All you have to do is see a neurologist anytime in the next 2 years, and give them ...

Absorbable stents are worse for heart patients

Absorbable Stent Is Worse, Not Better, for Preventing Heart Attacks

https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2017/03 ... t-attacks/

Two years of evidence show that the new absorbable stent is linked to more heart attacks rather than fewer compared to conventional stents.

When people have serious heart disease and require balloon angioplasty, interventional cardiologists frequently insert a stent. This tiny mesh cylinder fits inside a blood vessel to keep it open. It sits there ever ...
