I live in Australia, and had intra-cranial US performed in early 2009. There are people who do it, but as you have found, they aren't easy to find. Try hospitals and maybe stroke specialists. What's worse is that I spoke to one location that was learning it, but when I approached them about doing Zamboni's studies, they basically did not see a "market" for the testing; I didn't push it.Opera wrote:I live in Australia and here they can only do extracranial doppler US.
Any chance of issuing an early release to my doc? I go in for surg...um..I mean the "procedure" on July 27th.DrSclafani wrote:please tell your IR that i have written a primer in ENDOVASCULAR TODAY. It should come out next month.
Please get someone to video-tape this. Its fairly easy to convert to a video file and place on the net (that's an offer if you need the help) so everyone can see it around the world including those that can not attend. There are some good names in your list.DrSclafani wrote:He is welcome to join us in Brooklyn on July 26, when we will have a symposium on the techniques of liberation at SUNY. I will be joined by Dr. Siskin of Albany Medical College, Dr. Sinan, leader of the Kuwaiti trial, Dr. Haacke and Dr. Salvi, of Ferrara fame. We will discuss CCSVI and focus on techniques with colleagues from mostly the East Coast, but also from South American and perhaps Europe.
This "cutting balloon" really needs a less intrusive / violent name. I think my doc is a fan as well.DrSclafani wrote:My experiences with IVUS showed me that many of the narrowings are really valvular problems. These particular problems seemed to dilate well after cutting balloons. The fused valve leaflets just tear open. other valve problems just do not go away with angioplasty

There is also the important work you do here, educating and encouraging.
But I hope for more for you as well.

a) with the primer you've mentioned coming out in "Endovascular Today" and the Symposium you're holding July 26, might these two contribute to your IRB revisiting their desicion ?
and b) we got an e-mail from your office (?) re getting on your waiting list which included a "spread sheet" of questions: unfortunately my computer does not have the capability of filling this spread sheet out !!! Can I just provide the info as required without using the spread sheet ????
As I said in my earlier post, I really want my wife checked out, so I hope your can say "YES" to both my questions. Thanks.
