Is CCSVI good for Relapsing Progressive?

Can't find any information on this particular form.
Has anyone been treated for this?

As far as we know, CCSVI treatment is good for every type of m.s. Those with less disability tend to get more recovery but mostly the goal is to stop progression...which would certainly apply to RR Progresive.

The classifications are mostly being divided as: RR (relapsing remitting), SP (secondary progressive) and PP (primary progressive). I think Relapsing Progressive still falls in the RR category...it's only when it ceases to remit that it's considered secondary progressive. Hope to help.

Once upon a time, there were two buddies, rrms and ppms. Out from nowhere some patients considered ppms relapsed. And guess what? Some rrms patients showed progression between relapses, thus absence of remission.
So, they felt like giving a name, cause after all, they are the experts. Who was there to argue, you know?
And the name was relapsing progressing.

Idiots...

Probably a related topic:

In MS is there anything like remitting at all. Because most of the places I have observed that symptoms like fatigue, brain fog stay all along even though there may not be lesion activity or existing lesions could be healing.

Or, the term remitting is actually "remitting *conditions apply" :x
