CCSVI-a vascular disease w/neurological consequences

The ISNVD is broadening the scope of research to include the venous contribution to neurovascular diseases.
There were experts in Alzheimers, Parkinsons, stroke, hydrocephalus, dementia, endothelial health, TGA and other neurovascular conditions. Time to understand the veins and the brain.
Newest Neurovascular Breakthroughs Announced at ISNVD 2nd Annual Conference
Orlando, FL --- Scientists from all over the world came together this week to advance knowledge and collaboration in a critical area of medicine and science – neurovascular disease. Over the past several years, a new avenue of research into the venous involvement in neurovascular conditions ranging from multiple sclerosis to Parkinson’s has grown exponentially. A phenomenon called chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), has attracted global attention for its potential correlation with those and many other diseases.
CCSVI refers to impaired blood flow from the central nervous system to the periphery. It has been hypothesized that this narrowing of veins restricts blood flow from the brain, altering brain drainage, and may contribute to brain tissue injury that is associated with MS and other neurovascular diseases.
Yet, while CCSVI has generated intense interest among MS patients worldwide, and while independent scientific studies, point to an association with MS, work is still being done to determine conclusively that the condition is associated with these diseases, as well as to determine the best methods for diagnosis and treatment. These are among the key topics being discussed at the February Annual Meeting of the International Society for NeuroVascular Disease in Orlando, Fl.

Indeed, it was founded as the International Society of Neurovascular Disease, which casts a wider net than just CCSVI. Thanks for the link to the wrap-up!

Cece ... thanks for your doctor by doctor ISNVD reports.

Many years ago ..... when CCSVI on TIMS was first being talked about ...... MrSuccess predicted that CCSVI would evolve slowly..... as much as pwMS wanted this to flourish immediatly ..... it would only advance when 'white coat spoke to white coat'.

And that day has arrived.

I am overjoyed at the sheer number of dedicated medical professionals now exchanging ideas , experiences , and support for each other and CCSVI.

I salute you all.

Down the hatch .......
