Re: cerebrospinal fluid flow is reduced in MS

Overall, these results indicate that dynamic 11C-PiB PET can be used to observe pathological changes in cerebrospinal fluid dynamics and that cerebrospinal fluid-mediated clearance is reduced in Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis compared to healthy controls. So something called a dynamic 1...

Re: CCSVI procedure failed...

the CTA don't show (IJV + brachiocephalic vein junction) That would be the primary area that would need to be seen and the most likely area where you were treated during angioplasty. Sigh. You could still benefit from a doppler of that area but it doesn't seem like your doctor is onboard. Anyway, t...

mathematical model doctoral thesis

This is above my head. Lots of equations. Here's a conclusion: Our computational results show that during the cardiac cycle there is an intraparenchymal bidirectional CSF-ISF movement which potentially helps to avoid localizations of stagnant water inside the brain. Based on the computational result...

Re: CCSVI procedure failed...

I did experience some benefits on frequency and intensity of headaches. There has been some intriguing research on CCSVI treatment in patients with headaches. It's possible you are a nonresponder and it's not worth pursuing CCSVI any further. It's possible your IR did not inflate the balloon far en...

Re: CCSVI procedure failed...

I'm going to see my doctor today and see if he can refer me to do a echocardiography (echo color doppler). I have no idea how to check the overall condition of the IJVs. A doppler is a good idea. It should be able to show if there is flow in both IJVs. Did your doctor refer you? If he was against t...

Re: CCSVI procedure failed...

It's possible for the injection of contrast to be powerful enough to make it look like there are collaterals that aren't really there. I can't read the images but they are beautiful images! I am sorry you did not experience improvements. This was nearly a year ago now? If the sinuses pool together, ...

Re: CCSVI alive and well in Poland. Fascinating article.

phlebologist wrote:It is a fake webpage, probably aimed at stealing money from naive patients. Nobody has heard about this "clinic". Also, after release of Brevedreams study, procedures for CCSVI are no longer performed in Poland
I would trust phlebologist on this. Thanks for posting.

Re: CCSVI and Colloidal Silver...safe?

"Silver can be toxic to nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, but is normally prevented from entering those areas by the blood-brain barrier. Silver has not demonstrated any evidence of carcinogenic activity". oooh that's a hard no then I don't trust any of our blood-brain barriers to function ...
