I noticed back when I was in college (pre MS days), I would feel an odd sensation whenever I got a haircut. Namely, when they used the clippers to shave the back of my neck, I would feel, well, it's hard to describe, something like a tickle or an itch under the skin. It only happened on the right side. It wasn't real pronounced, but enough that I noticed. I would say it was somewhat ...

CCSVI whilst still CIS?

Hi all,

Many years ago (we are talking 80s and 90s) a treatment here in Spain became popular amongst MS patients. It was known as CTOS and involved the cutting if part of the scalene muscle to ease pressure in the jugular vein.

I have located the doctor and had the basic tests done. Using Doppler he found the right juglar vein obstructed as he followed it up towards the skull. When measuring blood flow ...

Microbleeds in the MS brain

Canadian microbiologists look at the iron around MS lesions, and link it to the vasculature and "chronic extravasation of hemoglobin", or microbleeds causing oxidative stress in the brain. This is what Dr. Zamboni proposed in 2006 in his "Big Idea" paper on the similarities of MS and venous disease. More researchers connecting MS lesions to the vasculature.

Although iron is known to be essential for the normal development and health of the central nervous system, ...

Robert Zivadinov, MD, PhD, says new research may reveal how extracranial venous abnormalities contribute to various diseases as well as aging.
UB Researchers Urge Broad Study of Venous Abnormalities
Published February 27, 2014

Although their oft-cited prior study found no causal relationship between venous abnormalities in the neck and multiple sclerosis (MS), University at Buffalo neurological researchers are strongly advocating more investigation.

“We have developed a substantial body of work looking at these abnormalities in ...

KIR4.1 antibodies and CCSVI

The American Academy of Neurology will be meeting in Philadelphia from April 26-May 3. In advance of this meeting, some press releases are being sent out. Apparently, the BIG NEWS in MS research is KIR4.1 antibodies are present in about half of the plasma samples from patients with a pre-clinical diagnosis of MS patients, and this could be a diagnostic and treatment target. According to research by the Technical University in Munich-

The researchers found ...

1. In healthy subjects, the IJV valve leaflets are ALWAYS mobile and open in up-right.
2. 62% of healthy controls with valve absence at least of one side suggests a progressive LOSS OF PHYLOGENETIC IMPORTANCE of such apparatus
4. The ATRIAL CONTRACTION induces ...

Catheter-Based, Forward-Looking, Real-Time, 3D Imaging ... 100049.htm

Researchers have developed the technology for a catheter-based device that would provide forward-looking, real-time, three-dimensional imaging from inside the heart, coronary arteries and peripheral blood vessels.

"Our device will allow doctors to see the whole volume that is in front of them within a blood vessel," said F. Levent Degertekin, a professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of ...
