In an alternative embodiment, the fluid has antiplatelet, anti-microvascular sludging, and vasodilator properties, all such properties contributing to improved rheology and volume of collateral circulation. Moreover, increasing the number of side portals 40 reduces the likelihood that the side portals 40 will be blocked by the free-floating spinal nerve roots that exist in the intrathecal space.
