This review summarises current knowledge on the lymphatic system of the brain.

It has long been believed that the central nervous system is characterised by the lack of a lymphatic system and that the role of the lymphatic system is played by cerebrospinal fluid.

Recently, research has shown that not only is the brain equipped with its ...

Leukoaraiosis and MS lesions appear in the same places

From the new article: ... ain.awv398

They explain that in the aging patients, damage is produced not only by the MS underlying condition, but also by the normal leukoaraiosis process
"Thus, periventricular white matter damage in patients with progressive multiple sclerosis is not only due to axonal transection in plaques, but also to age-related injury"

They also say that both kind of lesions are similar:

"It is currently ...

support for Dr. Arata's theory
edited to add another article:

I disagree with what Dr. Arata posited a few years ago, which was that ballooning the jugulars stimulated the autonomic nervous system and thereby caused improvements regardless of the removal of blockages. This article is an argument by Dr. Zohara Sternberg of Buffalo that agrees with Dr. Arata. The idea is that MS is causing autonomic ...

Parkinson's and veins?

I seem to recall seeing some images of a brain with Parkinson's disease with a vein connection.

But I can't seem to find the study so was hoping someone might recall it?

For a friend.

Cerebral Vasculitis is prerequisite for MS Lesion Genesis ... 473044.pdf

The classic acute inflammatory response is typified by a mandatory vascular inflammation and there is considerable
evidence conclusively demonstrating cerebral vasculitis in early MS pathology.

I come from Austria. I was quite skeptical before undergoing PTA. I suffer from CCSVI and I was diagnosed nearly 5 years ago.
Very confused about the treatment and potential results for years, i decided to undergo PTA in Rome.
I found a very professional Team. The neurologist, doctor Onorati spent much time with me as well as the monographer doctor Elena Righi. Finally, I met doctor Lupattelli. Everything went straightforward and I was ...

Lucchinetti pattern III and CCSVI

This is an old article but I found it just now. I found it specially interesting because CCSVI theory didn't still exists at the time it was published.

It says that the Lucchinetti pattern III could be produced by "a pathologic process similar to ischemia". The author besides hypothesizes two possible mechanisms: vascular impairment leading to defective microcirculation, and local production of toxins that alter the mithocondrial energy metabolism.

The original text: (available at ...
