Event Details


On Sunday, September 30, 2012, the National CCSVI Society (NCS) hosted its second annual Canadian CCSVI conference at the Foothills Centennial Center in Okotoks, Alberta. The conference, Exploring Frontiers in Neurovascular Health – a Canadian CCSVI conference presented current CCSVI research and provided education for the neurovascular patient communities and the community at large.


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 was proud to once again bring together leading international researchers and physicians who presented research and educated the patient  community on how CCSVI is emerging and becoming more clearly understood since it made front page news in 2009. We also offered attendees the chance to be tested for autnomic, dental bite, and blood hemodynamics.

Dr. Kenneth Mandato, a leading researcher from Albany, NY who is highly involved in the Saskatchewan government-funded study of CCSVI treatment outcomes, gave the keynote address. Dr. Mandato provided the latest research on CCSVI with a focus on the Saskatchewan clinical trial.


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, IBS, Migraine, ChronicFatigue, Fibromyalgia, Myasthenia Gravis, and Dementia.


With awareness of CCSVI growing exponentially in Canada, the public’s need for accurate and current information from medical researchers is paramount. 


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. All donations go towards bringing CCSVI researchers and patients together so everyone has the most current information available. Donations of $20 and more will receive a tax receipt for income tax purposes.

Canadian Neurovascular Health Society


The Canadian Neurovascular Health Society is a registered volunteer driven, non-profit charitable society dedicated to improving the lives of Canadians affected by neurovascular conditions and diseases primarily through support, research and education. Our mandate is to serve as a resource for education and research for individuals with and at risk for neurovascular symptoms, their families and caregivers, government, the public at large, and medical and research communities.

We provide services through three primary methods: Providing Information and Support – to advance the awareness of neurovascular health to health care professionals and to champion neurovascular treatment; Research – to gather knowledge of neurovascular conditions; and Education – delivering educational forums.

We will provide Canadian Charitable receipts for amounts $20.00 and higher.
