Researchers Report Alternate Explanation Discovery Of How And Why CCSVI Treatment Works In MS Patients


Here's an excerpt from the article, which was published yesterday on the website "Multiple Sclerosis News Today"

However, while the debate over CCSVI and MS continues, new data suggests that Dr. Zamboni may have gotten it right in looking at the veins for treatment, but it might not be venous abnormalities that are ...

Columbia Un-how endothelium regulates cerebral blood flow

Really, really interesting, multi-disciplinary study. They damage the endothelium with a laser, creating oxidative stress, and showed how endothelial dysfunction kept the blood vessels from dilating---thus limiting blood flow. Endothelial dysfunction might be the first step in neurological disease. Here's a new group for the ISNVD!

Columbia Engineers Provide New Insight into How the Brain Regulates Its Blood Flow

In a new study published online in the Journal of the American Heart Association June 12, ...

Modified approach to the treatment of autonomic dysfunction

Modified approach to the treatment of autonomic dysfunction in MS patients

A new study sheds light on the positive effect of a venous procedure upon the sympathetic nervous system. Researchers were able to pinpoint how the procedure improved the abnormal sympathetic function found in patients with many chronic conditions including Multiple Sclerosis. Additionally, the study may offer insight on the beneficial effects of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) treatment.......... Read More - http://www.ms-uk.org/ccsviresearch

Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion causes delayed white matter l

Interesting research study:

Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion induced by right unilateral common carotid artery occlusion causes delayed white matter lesions and cognitive impairment in adult mice.


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18222425

It would seem plausible that chronic outflow obstructions could cause similar white matter lesions as inflow obstructions. We already know that people with MS are prone to hypoperfusion.

I wonder how long the delay was between when they occluded the carotid artery, ...

Why does CCSVI treatment help?

I'm new here and I tried to do a search but didn't find the particular information.

I understand the concept of CCSVI from what I have read so far is that the flow of blood AWAY from the brain and CNS is restricted. This causes "stagnant" blood I'll call it to leave excessive iron deposits and other bad things from poor circulation.

My question is why would CCSVI cause the symptoms seen in RRMS? I ...

when does natural variance end and abnormality begin

http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/826467
"Perhaps the most striking finding in our study was the range of venous outflow anomalies detected that did not reflect pathology, but instead demonstrated the large natural variance in intracranial and extra-cranial venous anatomy," write the authors, led by Fiona Costello, MD, Department of Clinical Neurosciences and Surgery and the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Dr. Zamboni, NASA, and Rocket Science

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/stati ... /1278.html

Science Objectives for Everyone
On Earth, blood flows down from a person’s brain back toward the heart thanks in part to gravity, but very little is known about how this flow happens without gravity’s effects. Many crewmembers report headaches and other neurological symptoms in space, which may be related to the absence of gravity acting on blood flowing through the ...

CCSVI Practices Suboptimal but Patients Don't Mind

http://www.medpagetoday.com/MeetingCove ... RIMS/46082

Some research on surveys done of Canadian patients who had the CCSVI procedure done via medical tourism. The data is primarily from 2010-2011 so it may be out of date with current standards. Still interesting.
Curiously, none had gone to Italy – even though Zamboni and his proteges there have established busy venoplasty programs for MS patients.

Well, that casts Zamboni in a poor light. No ...

Interview with Dr. Zamboni ISNVD -pilot study on perfusion

Dr. Paolo Zamboni discusses his new pilot study which looks at perfusion changes in the multiple sclerosis (MS) brain prior to and after successful venoplasty for CCSVI, utilizing SPECT and PET scans. His team also compares cerebral perfusion in MS to normal controls. At the 2014 ISNVD conference
