2013 Doctors' Roundtable: Exploring CCSVI & CSF in Neurological Disease

Dr Rountable 2013 Panel

Thank you to everyone who attended CCSVI Alliance's 3rd Annual Satellite Symposia at the Society of Interventional Radiology* to explore the connections between CCSVI and CSF in neurological disease.

Leading medical and scientific professionals discussed current key questions and concerns related to CCSVI and CSF in neurological disease.  Here is the first of several, exclusive recordings from the event:


Question & Answer with Panel

Dr. Bulent Arslan moderates a Q&A session about CCSVI, its treatment and its connection to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Panel members include Dr. Meredith Englander, Dr. Salvatore Sclafani, Dr. Jerry Niedwiecki, and Dr. Scott Rosa. 


Observations at the Cranio-Cervical Junction, CTE and Observations of CSF


Dr. Scott Rosa has been working as a chiropractic physician for over 25 years. During his years of observational study, he became aware of the pathological CNS damage due to disrupted cerebrospinal fluid flow and arterial/venous flow.  In this presentation, Dr. Rosa refers briefly to his extensive research on the effect of acute and chronic trauma at the upper neck and lower skull, and presents his observations of the cranio-cervical junction, CTE, and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.


Causes of Non-Response to Interventional Treatment of CCSVI

Dr. Salvatore Sclafani discusses possible causes of non-responses and early reoccurrence to interventional treatment of CCSVI.  Dr. Sclafani treated his first CCSVI patient in 2009, and since then has dedicated his career to education and research about this syndrome.  Dr. Sclafani is Emeritus Professor and former Chairman of Radiology at the State University of New York Downstate Medical School.  He is also a founding member of the International Society of Neurovascular Disease (ISNVD).


What I Know About CCSVI

Meredith Englander, MD of the Albany Medical Center discusses what she knows about CCSVI.  The Albany Medical Center has treated hundreds of patients for CCSVI.  Hear Dr. Englander's observations from the last several years and why she thinks further research into CCSVI is important.
