MouseDoc on CCSVI

http://multiple-sclerosis-research.blog ... esearch%29
It is clear that the 100% concordance of CCSVI with MS is an unsustainable view. However the criteria applied to detect CCSVI does seem to occur in more MSers than Non-MSers, although some studies find it a vanishingly rare occurrence.

However, it is also the case that CCSVI criteria occurs in non- MSers. CCSVI criteria are more common in older MSers and so it is perhaps consequential ...

maybe a breakthrough in brain repair

http://news.psu.edu/story/298921/2013/1 ... alzheimers
So several years ago, Chen's lab tested new ways to transform glial scar tissue back to normal neural tissue.

"There are more reactive glial cells and fewer functional neurons in the injury site," Chen said, "so we hypothesized that we might be able to convert glial cells in the scar into functional neurons at the site of injury in the brain. This research was inspired by ...

Merry Christmas

Warm wishes to everyone for the holidays.

I was told yesterday by my brother-in-law and his fiancé that if they didn't know I had health issues, they would never have guessed, because of how well I looked. It was a lovely compliment. I also lasted for five hours at my inlaws Christmas celebration, which is remarkable since my pre-angioplasty limit was about an hour and a half before all systems crash wipeout. I am feeling ...

Ms. Fleming fought a legal battle for the right for euthanasia. She lost the battle but won the war (?) as she has passed away on her own.
Awful disease.

an article on Central Venous Catheterisation

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3206758/
Complications of Central Venous Catheterisation
The pre-procedure ultrasound revealed a good calibre right internal jugular vein in the upper neck, which became slight narrower when traced to the lower angle of Sedillot's triangle; it had an irregular outline with multiple collaterals. The picture was almost same on left side.

Here was a patient with sickle-cell disease who, at age 31, had already had her jugulars and other central veins ...

Longer than Zamboni's plethysmography: photoplethysmography

It seems that photoplethysmography is some kind of measuring blood flow in the vein through light. They have found an important correlation.

Transcranial brain photoplethysmography to study the venules of cerebral cortex in patients with multiple sclerosis.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24335101

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:
To evaluate the utility of a transcranial brain photoplethysmography parameter as a potential marker for patients with multiple sclerosis.

METHODS:
We investigated 38 patients affected by multiple sclerosis, according ...
