NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A new study sheds light on the positive effect of a venous procedure upon the sympathetic nervous system. Researchers were able to pinpoint how the procedure improved the abnormal sympathetic function found in patients with many chronic conditions including Multiple Sclerosis. Additionally, the study may offer insight on the beneficial effects of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) treatment. Newport Beach...

Primary Message To MS Patients and Practitioners is Endovascular Treatment for CCSVI Should Only Be Conducted in the Context of a Randomized, Double-Blinded Controlled Study New York, New York (PRWEB) November 22, 2013 Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of uncertain etiology characterized by demyelinating lesions affecting the central nervous system. In 2009, Dr. Paolo Zamboni et al described an association between MS and extra cranial venous outflow restrictive lesions detected by...

UBC-Vancouver Coastal Health research casts doubt on CCSVI theory A study led by Dr. Anthony Traboulsee of the University of British Columbia and Vancouver Coastal Health to see whether narrowing of the veins from the brain to the heart could be a cause of multiple sclerosis has found that the condition is just as prevalent in people without the disease. The results, published in the U.K. medical journal The Lancet, call into question a controversial theory that MS is associated with a...

No evidence that impaired blood flow or blockage in the veins of the neck or head is involved in MS There is no evidence that impaired blood flow or blockage in the veins of the neck or head is involved in multiple sclerosis, says a McMaster University study. The research, published online by PLOS ONE today, found no evidence of abnormalities in the internal jugular or vertebral veins or in the deep cerebral veins of any of 100 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) compared with 100...

Recent studies questioning the role of specialist heart attack centers produced misleading results because doctors tend to send the sickest patients to have the best care, according to new research. Many heart attack patients in the UK are sent to a specialist center for primary angioplasty - a surgical procedure to reopen the blocked artery. Randomized trials have found that angioplasty is much more successful than drug treatment alone, but research based on "real-world" data suggest that...

New magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research shows that changes in brain blood flow associated with vein abnormalities are not specific for multiple sclerosis (MS) and do not contribute to its severity, despite what some researchers have speculated. Results of the research are published online in the journal Radiology. "MRI allowed an accurate evaluation of cerebral blood flow that was crucial for our results," said Simone Marziali, M.D., from the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at the...

Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
