CCSVI treatment is worthy even if not causal for MS

CCSVI treatment is worthy for patients with depression even if not the cause for MS. It has been shown that endothelial weakness can cause depresion. This article is taken from the Jounal of Neuroinflammation and it looks like writen by neurologists.

Neurovascular unit dysfunction with blood-brain barrier hyperpermeability contributes to major depressive disorder: a review of clinical and experimental evidence.

Abstract

About one-third of people with major depressive ...

New from Dr. Zamboni-venous disease endothelial cells

Got this abstract tweeted to me this morning from Ferrara....
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar ... 661300183X

Dr. Zamboni's team looked at veins which had been surgically removed from patients with chronic venous disease, and what they found were cytokines seen in MS are also found in CVD, and released due to venous reflux. This paper is way over my endothelial pay grade, but it's interesting to note that Dr. Zamboni has found ...

Wolfville couple adamant Liberation treatment offers hope

http://www.kingscountynews.ca/Living/20 ... ers-hope/1
Zamboni, Alkenbrack says, “exposed a CCSVI iceberg – and the tip of this iceberg is slowly emerging. We must not let those who want to push it down under the surface of the water take control of this research.

“We don’t have all of the answers, but we have a glimpse of some of them.”

Great article.

NEW paper:CCSVI venoplasty improves cerebral blood flow

From Australia, pilot study published in Plebology--
8 people with MS/CCSVI are doppler scanned before and after venoplasty treatment. All treated patients show a "significant improvement in global arterial cerebral blood flow" after they are treated.

The current findings support the view that the early symptomatic benefits observed after venoplasty for stenoses in the extracranial venous circulation may be the result of increased cerebral perfusion.

CCSV!: Three Treatment Options

Recent research into Professor Zamboni’s « Liberation Procedure » has focused on his idea that blood « refluxes » (backs up) into the brain/central nervous system because of stenosed or damaged veins, thereby triggering an inflammatory response which damages the myelin sheath and other tissue. He proposes opening blood flow through the stenosed veins with “balloon” venoplasty.

While results have been promising, questions persist. Not all people exhibiting stenosis of the veins have MS, not ...

Insurance coverage for CCSVI Angioplasty?

I am in the process of choosing a health insurance plan for next year. Are there any health insurance plans in the United States that cover all or part of the angioplasty procedure for CCSVI?

I would like to be treated if I could find insurance coverage for the procedure. I can choose a plan through ObamaCare from the following companies: Premera Blue Cross, Coordinated Care, LifeWise, and BridgeSpan.

I know that several years ago ...

Age-Related Vascular Differences Among Patients Suffering MS

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24274909


Abstract

The aim of our study was to analyze morphological and functional aspects of cerebral veins by mean of eco-color-Doppler in young (i.e., ≤30 years old) and older (i.e., >30 years old) patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. 552 multiple sclerosis patients were evaluated by mean of a dedicated Echo-Color-Doppler support (MyLab Vinco echo-color Doppler System, Esaote), in both supine and sitting positions. 458 (83%) showed alterations in their ...
