Prof, from the time that the 90% stenosis was found, until you had the venogram in which the stenosis was "gone" were your symptoms any worse or better?
I have also found that sometimes there is a narrowing in the lower area where the valve should be. I note that sometimes the catheter passes it in a way the open the valves termporarily at which time flow is brisk. Without the catheter, or with it against the wall in a different way, flow is slower and the collaterals are better seen.
keep in mind that over 45% of clinically definite MS patients in the Buffalo study tested negative for CCSVI
The researchers also found fewer cases of CCSVI in patients who had experienced a single MS attack, called clinically isolated syndrome, compared to those with more advanced symptoms of the disease -38 per cent versus about 80 per cent.
