Hydrofracking, Ventriculomegaly and Brain Atrophy

Chronic venous drainage problems and high CSF pressure waves can lead to hydrofracking, ventriculomegaly and atrophy of the brain seen in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Continue reading

CSF and Cerebellar Symptoms in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and MS

The cerebellum may be affected in Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Chiari malformations and Dandy-Walker syndrome due to obstruction of CSF flow in the foramen magnum and upper cervical spinal canal. Continue reading

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

CSF Cistern Compression of the Brainstem

Obstruction to CSF and venous blood flow between the brain and cord can lead to an increase in CSF in the cisterns and subsequent dysautonomia, Parkinsonism and cerebellar signs and symptoms, as well as atrophy of the brainstem and cerebellum. 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
