International researchers to speak to Canadian MS & CCSVI patients about neurovascular health
National CCSVI Society, a Canadian charitable organization, is bringing world leaders in research on neurovascular health together to discuss CCSVI with the patient, doctor, and research communities on September 30, 2012 in Okotoks, Alberta.
Victoria, B.C. — On Sunday, September 30, 2012, the National CCSVI Society (NCS) will host Exploring Frontiers in Neurovascular Health, its second annual Canadian CCSVI conference at the Foothills Centennial Center in Okotoks, Alberta.
Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), a condition named by Italian researcher Dr. Paolo Zamboni, is more prevalent in those who have been diagnosed with a neurological disease. With CCSVI, the veins in the neck and chest are narrowed and therefore fail to allow blood to drain properly from the brain and spinal cord causing individuals who suffer from it to have slow stroke like physical and mental issues, which maybe misconstrued as purely neurological symptoms.
At the second annual conference NCS is proud to once again bring together leading international researchers and physicians who will present research and educate the patient community on how CCSVI is emerging and becoming more clearly understood since it made front page news in 2009.
Dr. Kenneth Mandato, a leading researcher from Albany, NY who is highly involved in the Saskatchewan government-funded study of CCSVI treatment outcomes, will give the keynote address. Other speakers will address CCSVI as it relates to over-all brain well-being. These will contribute to new information for anyone pre, post, or contemplating venous angioplasty. MS is just one on a large and growing list of conditions showing
association with this emerging neurovascular frontier, including but not limited to Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia.
With awareness of CCSVI growing exponentially in Canada, the public’s need for accurate and current information from medical researchers is paramount. Corporate and personal event sponsorship options are available to help NCS continue to bring the most accurate and up to date information to Canadians.

The National CCSVI Society is a Canadian registered charitable society formed in 2010 whose mandate is to continue to provide patients, physicians, medical policy makers, and the public at large with the latest in CCSVI research.
