HUMANKIND’S MOST COMMON AND UNKNOWN DISEASE
The Filum Disease affects the whole nervous system of a human being.
Research conducted by Dr. M. B. Royo Salvador has linked diseases like the Arnold-Chiari I Syndrome, Idiopathic Syringomyelia and Scoliosis under a single concept: the Filum Disease. These conditons share the same cause: an abnormal traction exerted by the filum terminale.
The nervous system controls all the mechanisms of our body just as our spine is a support for our body. The Filum Disease affects the spine and nervous system causing pain throughout the body, changes in sensitivity to temperature and touch, lack of strength in the extremities, tiredness, dizziness, instability, even alterations of memory and concentration. It has a very wide range of symptoms and signs and its consequences may be irreversible.
The design of a new surgical technique, minimally invasive in nature, allows eliminating the cause of the disease by sectioning the filum terminale. the mortality and morbidity rates of conventional treatments are thus it eliminated. According to our research, the incidence rate of this condition is more than 20% of the world population and the lack of information about it hinders a correct and immediate diagnosis.
Arnold-Chiari I SYNDROME
CONGENITAL DESCENT OF THE CEREBELLAR TONSILS (DCT)
The Arnold-Chiari I Syndrome (ACHS.I) is the herniation of the cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum into the spinal canal without any other malformation of the nervous system.
The most frequent symptoms in our experience are: headache, dizziness, nauseas, vomiting, cervical pain, dysphagia, insomnia, concentration and memory alterations.
According to the research by Dr. M. B. Royo Salvador, the Arnold-Chiari I Syndrome is the result of an abnormal traction of the spinal cord, due to an anomalous filum terminale which is not detectable on the complementary examinations (Filum Disease) . See more information.
