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

renal denervation failed trial

There were comparisons to be made in the last few years between renal denervation and ccsvi venoplasty because they were two new endovascular procedures that had yet to be fully researched. Renal denervation seemed to be embraced by IRs to a greater extent than CCSVI venoplasty. I don't know if this failed trial will be the end of renal denervation, but it is a blow. If the comparison is the trajectory of a new endovascular ...

New research- UV rays, nitric oxide and MS symptom relief

The sun is free. No prescription needed.
10-15 minutes of sunshine or UVB phototherapy sends Treg cells flowing from the lymph nodes to sites of inflammation in people with MS. People with MS had symptom relief in a study completed by German neurologists and published last week.

Regulatory T cells (Tregs), which are induced locally in the skin-draining lymph nodes in response to UVB exposure, connect the cutaneous immune response to CNS immunity by migration ...

Follow up ultrasounds

I had my CCSVI procedure done by Dr. Sclafani in Brooklyn. I loved him & his wonderful staff. I had my first follow up ultrasound at his office. :-D

After that, I wanted someone closer to where I live (California) to do my ultrasound re-checks. I tried a certain Newport Beach CCSVI practitioner's office, & was VERY disappointed. The Dr. inserted himself, when he knew I ...

The Driscoll Theory explains all of my health problems

I've been diagnosed with MS, CCSVI, POTS, IBS, Fibromyalgia, Chiari, Degenerative Disc Disease, RA, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, and Scoliosis. I've been treated for CCSVI successfully and I receive Atlas Orthogonal adjustments on a regular basis. Both of these have resolved the hypo perfusion in my CNS. Many of my symptoms have been resolved or at least have improved. I've had no progression of my MS since my first CCSVI treatment in 2009.
My doctor and ...

CCSVI, MS, and Decompression Sickness

Well, is you asked me this morning what I was going to do this afternoon, joining an MS forum and learning about CCSVI was not in the plan.

I'm not really sure where to start in this discussion, so I figure I will through my story out there and collect the hive-mind's thoughts.

I was a scuba diver until November of 2012 when I had a serious "hit" of decompression sickness. It was "undeserved" in ...

Long term results

Hi I haven't been reading on here very much for quite awhile. I know of a few people locally that have had the procedure done with having some success with feeling better but it didn't last. In both cases they say that they feel worse now than they did before they went for the procedure. I really don't know everything about their cases but am curious if there are a high percentage of people that ...

Good news: Improvements reported finally in an article

I could put it into research, but I think is worthy to give this extra visibility.

Bilateral Surgical Reconstruction for Internal Jugular Veins Disease in Patients With Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and associated Multiple Sclerosis.


Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a vascular condition characterized by morphological alterations involving efferent cerebral vascular paths. CCSVI has been implicated as a contributing factor to multiple sclerosis (MS) but ...

Computational haemodynamics in stenotic IJVs

This was posted today on Facebook:
Computational haemodynamics in stenotic internal jugular veins.

Authors Caiazzo A, et al.
J Math Biol. 2014 Mar 27.

An association of stenotic internal jugular veins (IJVs) to anomalous cerebral venous hemodynamics and Multiple Sclerosis has been recently hypothesized. In this work, we set up a computational framework to assess the relevance of IJV stenoses through numerical ...

Ginger for vasodilation

I was wondering if anyone has tried using ginger for its vasodilation activity? I was taking 1 tsp per day for a couple of weeks, but had to cut back to ½ tsp since I started getting bloody noses. It helps me feel a little more energetic and alert.

IJV Blood Flow Linked to Disability

Hi all

Came across this study of 58 people with MS and 13 healthy controls that found an association between IJV blood flow (wash out rate) and disability levels.

Internal Jugular Vein Blood Flow in Multiple Sclerosis Patients and Matched Controls (full article available) From the abstract:
A significant correlation was found between Internal Jugular Vein wash-out and level of disability (R = −0.402, p<0.05).

From the article itself:
In conclusion, these results suggest that ...
