The idea of establishing a foundation and clinic for CCSVI research came out when our loved ones were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Despite considerable financial outlays, we have been unsuccessfully in seeking help all over the world.
There was one goal in our minds. To find a way out of the disease and improve the quality of life of our loved ones. After many years of testing dozens of conventional and alternative therapies, we became interested in CCSVI coexisting with MS.
Perhaps we have finally found a correlation that will enable to reduce most of the neurological symptoms that are characteristic of neurodegenerative diseases in a significant number of patients.
Although the majority of CCSVI procedures carried out around the world have resulted in an improvement in the neurological condition of patients, from a " scientific point of view" no one has yet proved whether CCSVI therapy really works and is effective, and if so, for which patients the benefits from the procedure justify the intervention. The correlation between venous deformations and neurological symptoms associated with MS should therefore be clearly demonstrated or excluded for the benefit of both science and patients.
This is what we do in our clinic. Each patient participates in a larger, long-term clinical trial (a protocol approved by the Bioethics Committee), which aims not only to help patients, but also to clearly define the correlation between CCSVI and the numerous neurological symptoms. The study is conducted in accordance with the standards of medical ethics, GCP (good clinical practice) and EBM (evidence-based medicine). Our hope is that after years of controversy, CCSVI procedures may become a standard in the treatment of numerous neurodegenerative diseases.
In our clinic, we do not only deal with jugular vein constriction, as it is the case in most CCSVI clinics around the world.
We diagnose variability related to the outflow of blood from the brain and spinal cord with the use of the most modern equipment and a help of top-class doctors.As the only clinic worldwide, we measure pressure gradients so that we are able to correctly diagnose flow pathologies that are invisible during standard diagnostic procedures.
In order to carry out our work at the highest world-class level, our laboratories have been equipped with 3-tesla magnetic resonance, top class angiograph, and IVUS with a pressure measuring device, to enable the most advanced diagnostics of the venous system.We also have a modern laboratory facilities in the field of biochemistry, immunology and molecular biology.
Our team includes a top class neurologists, surgeons, anaesthesiologists, neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists and specialists in biochemistry, immunology and genetics.
The whole process is supervised by a team of medical professors - specialists in surgery, radiology, interventional neuroradiology, biochemistry and immunology.
