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


At the symposium, Dake at least acknowledged something that has concerned me a lot when he said he didn't know why he wasn't seeing much azygous trouble compared to Zamboni's 86%.

Since Zamboni has seen primarily Italians, and Dake primarily Americans, is it possible there's some genetic pool predisposing Italians to congenital azygous issues? I realize most Americans were Europeans 200 years ago, but still.

It seems that if there were such a difference then ...

Radiologist and Zamboni's sample video

Hi all.

I have a wonderful radiologist who is very interested in CCSVI and we want to have a Doppler scan performed on me. He has been researching how it is done (hopefully, he has studied in Italy, speaks the language and knows some of the people appearing on the papers!!!) but he would also like o have the video that Zamboni mentioned at the conference.

Does anybody know if it is or will be ...

The Stone Is Rolling - Word is out


I am somewhat of a google super user, and have lots and lots of google new alert, blog search and old usenet searches posted to me via RSS daily.

The majority of the search terms used to be work related (Oil & Gas) but since Mel was diagnosed I've had a lot of MS related searches too.

It's actually quite a trip down memory lane looking at the terms I entered ...

Prof. Zamboni opened the proceedings by outlining the key questions the meeting was set to answer and ...

A hole in the skull (not CCSVI, just interesting)

Again, not strictly CCSVI but somewhat related.

The brain's buffer

As well as delivering oxygen to the brain, cerebral blood flow has another vital role: the circulation and production of cerebrospinal fluid. This clear liquid surrounds the brain, carrying the nutrients that feed it and removing the waste it produces, including the tau and beta-amyloid proteins that have been implicated in the formation of plaques found in the brains of people with Alzheimer's (Cerebrospinal Fluid ...
