The Cisterns and Cine CSF Flow Studies

Blockage of CSF flow in the spinal canal can cause an increase in CSF volume, backjets and turbulance in the cisterns that may play a role in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis, as well as other neurodegenerative diseases. Continue reading

Cervical Spondylosis and CSF Flow in the Cisterns

Degenerative changes in the cervical spine called spondylosis can cause tubulance, backjets and standing waves of CSF to form in the basal cisterns of the brain resulting in neurodegenerative processes and subsequent diseases such as Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Continue reading

CSF Currents, Winds and Tides

CSF flow is determined by currents, winds and tides that can pound and erode the brain when the flow is blocked or their forces collide. Continue reading

CSF, Clapotis, Cisterns and Cysts

It is possible that faulty CSF flow through the foramen magnum and upper cervical spine can result in standing waves and water hammers that causes cysts to form in the cisterns, subarachnoid spaces and central canal. Continue reading

The Missed Measure of Man

The design of the posterior fossa predisposes humans to normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), Chiari malformations, cysts such as Dandy-Walker syndrome, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Continue reading

Cysts, Syrinxes and CSF

In addition to Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, obstruction to CSF flow can cause turbulance and jets that erode tissues and lead to the formation of cysts and syrinxes in the brain and cord. Continue reading
