22nd Annual Meeting of American Venous Forum in Amelia Is,FL

Postby Nunzio » Tue Feb 09, 2010 5:18 pm

On Friday Feb 12 there will be a presentation on CCSVI in which they should annouce the results of the preliminary Buffalo Study.
I hope somebody will post a video of the meeting.
This should spark interest in treatment since this is aimed at doctors already treating venous disorders.

I just saw your post Nunzio. Thanks for posting it. I found the website for the American Venous Forum which is veinforum.org and I see that the 22nd meeting is beginning today 2/10/2010 and goes through Saturday 2/13/2010. I live in South Florida but I hope some of the doctors at Mayo clinic in Jacksonville go to that meeting and hear about CCSVI and the Liberation Treatment on the 12th. Could you imagine if just a few of the doctors at the Mayo Clinic get on board with the Liberation Treatment for CCSVI? That would be like dumping a bucket of gasoline on this little campfire that Dr. Zamboni started! Anyway, last week I sent out 20 letters to doctors in south Florida and also to doctors at the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville. Did you get the schedule for the CCSVI presentation on the 12th from the veinforum.org website? I can't seem to find a schedule of events and I would like to forward this information along to the doctors that I sent the letters to at the Mayo clinic since this meeting in Amelia Island is less than an hour from Jacksonville. These are exciting times for those of us suffering from MS and for the caretakers too!

With a little more digging I found the program. Here is the link to the PDF for anyone that may be in NorthEast Florida or SouthEast Georgia and/or has doctors that are near there I would certainly encourage them to go Friday morning to hear the CCSVI presentation. http://veinforum.org/uploads/File/annua ... ochure.pdf

Faith, Hope & Love

Hi We Will Beat MS,
I am glad you found the link which they still call preliminary

http://veinforum.org/uploads/File/annua ... ochure.pdf

I am sure this will start a fire since once the doctors see Dr. Zamboni et Al. presentation with obvious vein malformations, membranes blocking flow, compression, twisting etc. which obviously cannot just be a coincidence should get on board with it.
I am hoping too that centers like Univ of Miami and Cleveland clinic will start their own diagnostic centers.
University of south Florida in Tampa is going to start a diagnostic center soon.
Let's keep our fingers crossed

(FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12th
7:00 am Continental Breakfast/Exhibits Open
7:30 am SCIENTIFIC SESSION IV
Multi-Topic
Moderators: Michael A. Vasquez, MD &
M. Ashraf Mansour, MD
Educational Objective: At the conclusion of the
session, participants should have a better
understanding of (1) the relationship of the
Venous Clinical Severity Score to other venous
assessment tools in a general venous screening
population, (2) thromboembolic complications
following Inferior Vena Cava penetrating
injuries and (3) treatment options for chronic
cerebrospinal venous insufficiency in Multiple
Sclerosis.)
Maybe need to wait if a news release after the close.
Sorry...just a little too anxious on my part.
