Impaired Blood Flow in Diabetic Brain Tied to Cognitive Prob

http://www.medpagetoday.com/Neurology/G ... g454846d0r

Thought this was interesting and relevant to the discussion here.

"These correlations suggest that inflammation has a critical role in the degradation of cerebral vasoregulation in the milieu of chronic hyperglycemia regardless of glycemic control," they added.

Inflammation plus starved neurons equals cognitive decline
They said their findings also suggest that endothelial problems may develop early in the course of hyperglycemic damage, before any structural changes ...

Settings for an Effective Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

WHY ISN'T ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS AND IT'S SIGNIFICANCE TO CCSVI??
New research destroys the auto-immune model of Multiple Sclerosis

The Journal of Experimental Medicine said it best in their recent tweet:
“Decades of medical theory which considered the brain as different from other organs of the body and without a lymphatic drainage system were, well...... simply not correct.”

The presence of a lymphatic vascular system:
The University of Helsinki has independently published a ...

Clive Beggs' new paper- hemodynamics and MS

Great new paper from ISNVD member, Clive Beggs---open access:

Venous haemodynamic and cerebrospinal fluid anomalies associated with multiple sclerosis

The key findings of these studies are: (i) MS patients, diagnosed with CCSVI, exhibit greatly increased
hydraulic resistance of the cerebral venous drainage system; (ii) MS patients experience loss of the small cerebral veins; (iii) MS patients exhibit reduced CSF bulk flow, consistent with mild venous hypertension; (iv) MS patients exhibit increased CSF pulsatility in the ...

Reflux question

Hi Dr. S -

I emailed you but am not sure if you have received it yet.

Do you normally treat refluxing IVJ's?

What about refluxing from a chest vein (axillary + lateral thoracic)? Is this something we could treat? Symptoms are debilitating - ultrasounds prove the reflux....need help very very much!

2nd study: lymph vessels in CNS confirmed

Helsinki University has also found the newly discovered lymph vessels which carry immune cells in the CNS, and rely on venous drainage of the brain.

NEW: Dr. Zamboni's presentation on lymphatic discovery

Dr. Zamboni explains the importance of the most recent discovery from the University of Virginia, published in Nature: which is that a lattice of lymph vessels carrying immune cells are associated with veins flow which out along the cerebral veins into the extracranial veins.

"This is a very important article published in Nature. It is found that it is NOT true that the brain is segregated from the point of view immune system, because it ...

New discoveries show importance of veins

The new discoveries of the lymphatic vessels and immune cells in the CNS and the glymphatic clearance system of the sleeping brain are pointing to the importance of the veins that drain the brain.

Lymphatic vessel drainage runs next to veins, and requires open venous flow, since lymph cells end up in the jugular blood flow.
Really hoping these discoveries move CCSVI research forward.

Here's more on the connection--
