My understanding is that the Buffalo results that have been released so far were obtained using a transcranial doppler. The rest of the results, including the MRVs, are still being peer-reviewed or haven't been released and will be in the April paper.
Does the transcranial doppler give any information at all about the azygous? Or does it just cover the head and jugulars? If the latter is true, then suze is right, the azygous has yet to be factored in for the current results but should be in the April paper. There is also still an unexplained difference in that Zamboni found far more azygous stenoses then Dake or Simka have.
