Did You Know?
CCSVI is a condition where people have obstructed blood flow in the veins that drain the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Research indicates that CCSVI is significantly correlated with multiple sclerosis.
Dr. Paolo Zamboni, vascular professor at the University of Ferrara, Italy, named a new condition he discovered CCSVI-Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency. The vascular connection to MS dates back to the earliest studies of the disease, 170 years ago.
Dr. Zamboni and his colleagues imaged the veins of 65 MS patients and all had venous abnormalities, a finding not seen in healthy controls. Dr. Zamboni corrected venous obstruction with angioplasty, and many patients had relief of MS symptoms and a halting of disease progression.
CCSVI Alliance is pleased to announce an Educational Symposium and our first participant event, Opening Minds for CCSVI Walk-n-Roll, to be held in Tampa, FL on Friday and Saturday March 4th - 5th, 2011. Our goal is raise funds to help educate patients with research-based information, provide tools for patients to advocate for themselves, and to support medical professionals' exploration of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency. You can help us spread the word on CCSVI.
