Venous Hemodynamics in Neurologic Disorders
Clive Beggs, Ph.D. (Centre for Infection Control and Biophysics, University of Bradford, Bradford, UK)
Abstract There is increasing evidence that the cerebral veins and sinuses play an important role in regulating fluids in the intracranial space . There is evidence that venous anomalies may contribute to the pathophysiology of several neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS) , leukoaraiosis [5, ...
Intervention Studies 2014 B. Therapy Trials Need to Wait. The Landscape has Changed
Kottil W. Rammohan, M.D.
Background: Numerous open label and few blinded studies have been reported on the “liberation” therapy since the original description of the disorder by Dr. Paolo Zamboni in 2008. Although most of these trials report no benefit for this endovascular intervention, Over 30,000 patients with various types and stages of ...
Designing an Endovascular Trial – What Elements are Essential and Why CCSVI Trials Might Differ from Disease Modifying Trials?
Kottil W. Rammohan, M.D. Background: “Liberation” of CCSVI has been associated with reports of variable efficacy both in the short as well as in the long term. Most claims of efficacy has however not withstood the scientific rigors of double-blind trials. Many of these trials have suffered ...
Zivadinov and his colleagues published a paper on the prevalence of these abnormalities in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients in 2011. The paper is one of the top ten articles in neurology and the second most cited paper in neurology since its publication, according to Neuropenews, the news blog of the European Federation of Neurological Societies and the European Neurological Society.

...In conclusion, the current study provides imaging-based evidence of a chronically reduced cerebral venous drainage through the internal jugular veins, an increased drainage in secondary venous channels with a concomitantly mild decreased intracranial compliance and mild increased intracranial pressure in supine subjects with a history of mTBI.
