CCSVI as the Cause of  Multiple Sclerosis

 But Dr Zamboni isn't the first MS researcher to notice problems with veins in MS; the fact  that enlarged veins are in the center of MS lesions was noted as early as the 1860's and is well known today.  But what do these widened veins tell us about MS?

This book follows this journey of discovery and highlights related MS research that supports the theory.  Referencing over 250 research papers published in the field of MS, it tells the MS story from a venous perspective.For interested patients it also includes a detailed section on how these venous issues could be treated --the so called "liberation therapy" or procedure--highlighting concerns that patients should discuss with their personal physician if they should seek treatment.  
There are also 12 patient stories including several who were treated at Stanford in 2009 as well as the story of one of the patients treated by Dr Zamboni in 2006. Reviewed by the leading researchers in this field including Dr Zamboni with a foreword by E. Mark Haacke PhD, this book is a must have for people wanting to understand this model.

Author Marie Rhodes

Paolo Zamboni MD published his first paper describing the theory that MS may be a type of venous insufficiency in 2006.  Since that time,  he has published numerous other groundbreaking studies that have further elucidated the idea.

BOOK REVIEWS

A must read for anyone interested in MS!

This well written book helps doctors and patients understand the important connection of venous insufficiency and Multiple Sclerosis. An indispensable resource for anyone living with MS.  -Ronnie

 

 

 The best investment you will ever make

 I knew this was going to be an excellent book because I have heard Marie speak in Seattle - it still exceeded my expectations. I have highlighted what spoke to me as the most important tidbits, and I am bringing this book to my next Neurologist appointment. I have seen the benefits of CCSVI treatment first hand. I consider myself an expert because I researched it for a year before I had it done. I have not been articulate in communication with my doctors, and this is going to help. I really like that this book is for patients and doctors. You can get out of it exactly how much detail you are looking for. I have had problems with reading comprehension my entire life, and wasn't sure I would be able to get much out of the book. To my surprise, this is another area that CCSVI treatment has helped - I savored every chapter. The summaries at the end of the chapters are invaluable. Since information on CCSVI is rapidly growing, I hope to see Marie update this book, or perhaps write another. I will buy whatever she writes about CCSVI.  -Laura Justice  


This is a MUST HAVE BOOK!

Do you have Multiple Sclerosis or have a family member or friend with MS? You need to get this book! It is quickly becoming the BIBLE of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI), a new treatable condition being found in many patients, also suffering with MS. Marie Rhodes, a registered nurse and the second patient treated in the U.S. for her CCSVI, (at Stanford University in 2009) has written a compelling book, like no other MS book on the market today. The CCSVI connection to MS was discovered by Dr. Paulo Zamboni, a vascular surgeon in Ferrara Italy, whose wife was suffering with MS. For many years in it's early beginnings, MS was thought to be a vascular disease. Marie, through Dr. Zamboni's research, concisely helps us understand why MS is NOT an auto-immune disease, but rather a vascular condition, attributed to poor blood drainage from the brain. Scientifically based, it is still easy to understand for layman and even cognitively impaired MS patients. Marie takes you through the history of MS, up to the present day and ongoing controversy between researchers, doctors and patients, all trying to figure out how CCSVI fits into the MS equation. Wonderful stories by pioneering MS patients and their caregivers, including the author. Their passion and determination drove CCSVI out hands of researchers and into the mainstream through the faced paced world of the internet and social media. With this simple angioplasty surgery being performed in many countries around the world, sometimes with dramatic results, CCSVI is quickly changing the face of what we have known MS to be. But there is still much to learn about the connection between CCSVI and MS. This book will help you on your way to understanding the connection between the two. The price is higher than I wanted, but I bought it without hesitation, and it was well worth every penny. I plan on passing it around to all my friends and am recommending it to everyone with MS. CCSVI is dramatically changing quality of life for many MS patients and I am one of them! CCSVI has given me my life back and has empowered me to make my own decisions about my healthcare. I want to help other MS'ers learn about this so they can get their life back too! I really can't recommend it highly enough A++++++ Thanks Marie! Nicki Sarasota, FL.
