Dissociation of CSF Flow in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Dissociation of CSF flow between the cranial vault and spinal canal may play a role in many neurodegenerative diseases associated with hydrocephalus in children and adults such as: Dandy-Walker Syndrome, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multisystem atrophy, and multipe sclerosis. Continue reading

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

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
