Re: “CCSVI-MSketeers Multiple Sclerosis Fundraiser

Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), or the pathological restriction of venous vessel discharge from the CNS has been proposed by Zamboni, et al, as having a correlative relationship to Multiple Sclerosis. From a clinical perspective, it has been demonstrated that the narrowed jugular veins in an MS patient, once widened, do affect the presenting symptoms of MS and the overall health of the patient. It has also been noted that these same veins once treated, restenose after a time in the majority of cases. Why the veins restenose is speculative. One insight, developed through practical observation, suggests that there are gaps in the therapy protocol as it is currently practiced. In general, CCSVI therapy has focused on directly treating the venous system and the stenosed veins. Several other factors that would naturally affect vein recovery have received much less consideration. As to treatment for CCSVI, it should be noted that no meaningful aftercare protocol based on evidence has been considered by the main proponents of the ‘liberation’ therapy (neck venoplasty). In fact, in all of the clinics or hospitals examined for this study, patients weren’t required to stay in the clinical setting any longer than a few hours post-procedure in most cases. Even though it has been observed to be therapeutically useful by some of the main early practitioners of the ‘liberation’ therapy, follow-up, supportive care for recovering patients post-operatively has not seriously been considered to be part of the treatment protocol. To date, follow-up care has primarily centered on when vein re-imaging should be done post-venoplasty. The fact is, by that time, most patients have restenosed (or partially restenosed) and the follow-up Doppler testing is simply detecting restenosis and retrograde flow in veins that are very much deteriorated due to scarring left by the initial procedure. This article discusses a variable approach as to a combination of safe and effective interventional therapies that have been observed to result in enduring venous drainage of the CNS to offset the destructive effects of inflammation and neurodegeneration, and to regenerate disease damaged tissue.
As stated, it has been observed that a number of presenting symptoms of MS almost completely vanish as soon as the jugulars are widened and the flows equalize in most MS patients. Where a small number of MS patients have received no immediate benefit from the ‘liberation’ procedure, flows in subject samples have been shown not to have equalized post-procedure in these patients and therefore even a very small retrograde blood flow back to the CNS can offset the therapeutic benefits. Furthermore once the obstructed veins are further examined for hemodynamic obstruction and widened at the point of occlusion in those patients to allow full drainage, the presenting symptoms of MS retreat. This noted observation along with the large number of MS patients who have CCSVI establish a clear association of vein disease with MS, although it is clearly not the disease ‘trigger’.For more information please visit http://www.ccsviclinic.ca/?p=978

Re: “Fiddler On The Roof

This is my review: http://www.examiner.com/review/tradition-a…

Or without links: Tradition at Oakland's Woodminster Amphitheater

Community theatre helps us stay connected and human in an ever-changing digital and fast-moving entertainment world. Outdoor musicals like the ones produced in Oakland's Woodminster Amphitheater at Joaquin Miller Park also offer an opportunity to turn an evening of theater into a wine-sipping, evening picnic with friends.

Half the joy from Woodminster's summer series is being in the open air as the night descends and under starry cover one can watch a favorite production. We caught the closing performance of Fiddler on the Roof and enjoyed wine, sandwiches and near-perfect weather.

The Woodminster Amphitheater in Oakland offers a summer series of musicals each year – since it's start in 1967. The open-air amphitheater is a unique venue and with no restrictions on food and beverages at the event you can join local insiders who turn the evening into a portable feast and nosh throughout the performance.

This year the summer musical offerings will continue after a successful production of Fiddler on the Roof with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (in August) and a version of the inimitable Cats in early September.

It is a rare opportunity to see a musical in an urban, outdoor setting. Even more rare is the organizers' commitment to keeping the shows affordable and accessible. Partnerships with local businesses fund a program that gives free entrance for children (with adult ticket purchase see box office info for details). For many youngsters it is their first exposure to live theater.
