How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

What has been elementary for identifying MS can be shown with a handful of meticulously done depiction of cord, brainstem, and central cerebral hemisphere findings. The careful analysis of these findings tells more about nature and cause of the disease than any of the countless clinical MS findings and investigations.
The emissary veins form the only absolutely rigid passages in the venous pathways of the human brain and are normally the narrowest segments of their entire lengths. The precise determination of their diameters with the calculation of their flow conductivities was of interest in two respects: (1) regarding the individual relations of the latter val...
In establishing the CCSVI concept, the compressions of the internal jugular veins in particular head, neck, and chest positions have found little attention. This neither regarding their potential to obstruct and even occlude these veins for changeable time periods nor regarding their potential to cause peripherally directed venous impulses upstream...
The original MS post mortem findings were never carefully analyzed. In reviewing their pictures it is made evident that they are more or less commonly seen to specifically parallel what MS patients show on their MRIs - and that the given lesion patterns and their manner of spread can only be attributed to retrograde venous impacts into particular v...
Abstract Translation and reprint of the paper "Möglichkeiten der endogenen traumatisation von gehirn, rückenmark und nervenwurzeln", by Franz Schelling, selfpublication Dornbirn (Austria) 1982. Keywords Multiple sclerosis, Venous hypothesis, Cerebral [and spinal venous] reflux
Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) proposes hindrances to the venous drainage of the brain and spine. Clinically diagnosed or definite multiple sclerosis (CDMS) is diagnosed by a "dissemination in space and time" of brain and spinal cord lesions in want of a specific characterization. This definition of CDMS and its attribution to a...
In the context of the evidence-based medicine (EBM) movement, the clinical trial has come to be hailed as the ultimate source of medical knowledge, and especially of clinical pharmacology. By subjecting the premises of this procedure to a thorough analysis, the author hopes to achieve a sound rating of its epistemological significance in the contex...
The radiogenic modifications of the thorax radiography were evaluated in 100 patients irradiated postoperatively for mammary carcinoma between January, 1980 and March, 1983. No adjuvant chemotherapy was given. A telecobalt unit was used for the irradiations. A computer-assisted planning (Evados) was applied in order to obtain an individual optimiza...
Unequal propagation of central venous excess pressure into the different cerebral and spinal venous drainage systems is the rule rather than the exception. The intensity of the forces thus to be exerted on vulnerable cerebrospinal structures by the resulting pressure-gradients in the craniovertebral space is unknown. There is a need to consider the...
In a valvular insufficiency of an internal jugular vein1 repeated elevations of the central venous pressure exceeding the arterial pressures2 may reach the thin-walled cerebral veins.
An attempt at exploring the relationship between cranial venous outflow resistance and not only cerebral but also spinal damages of a potentially venous origin
An attempt at elucidating the implications of a reduced cranial venous outflow resistance in 'burnt out' instances of multiple sclerosis
The range of hemodynamic conductivity of the venous outlets of the skull, called emissary veins, and factors influencing them have been explored in 888 closed and 210 opened human skulls: Exept the condylar canal and the mastoid emissary vein only emissary veins joined to cranial nerves are of importance. The straighter the connection to the heart...

No one knows how high and fast central venous pressures maximally rise - even in animals.
The question attains special relevance for ill-collateralized vessels in the periphery of obstructed large trunk and neck veins.
Thank you for considering this point, and especially for any information on the technical feasibility.
