Do you have a direct link to your symposium announcement? I could forward it to a couple of IR's here in the Midwest.
Dr. Sclafani posted this on July 5th:
The Departments of Radiology and Neurology of SUNY Downstate Medical School are pleased to sponsor a symposium on the treatment of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) on Monday July 26 at 9am in the Alumni Hall of Downstate's Educational Building.
CCSVI is a condition in which the main cerebrospinal venous outflow routes are obstructed, leading to symptoms of fatigue, headaches, weakness and cognitive dysfunction. The association of CCSVI with Multiple Sclerosis has been described and confirmed. Treatment by venous angioplasty was reported by Paolo Zamboni in the Journal of Vascular Surgery in January 2010 and clinical trials have begun in the United States and elsewhere.
We are pleased that Dr Fabrizio Salvi, Dr. Zamboni's neurologist partner, will attend this meeting. Also reporting their experience will be Tariq Sinan, the interventionalist who leads the Kuwaiti National Trial, Gary Siskin of the Albany Medical Center and Salvatore JA Sclafani of Downstate.
The goals of this conference will be to review the concept of CCSVI, ,to illustrate the various imaging modalities and to describe the techniques and challenges of the procedure.
The audience is encouraged to bring Powerpoint presentations of interesting or challenging cases to share with the audience during our final session.
The seminar will occur on July 26 beginning at 9 am. There will be no charge for registration
Please email me at CCSVISymposium@gmail.com
if you plan to attend so that I can reserve you space.
PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR INTERVENTIONALISTS. I SUSPECT THAT THERE WILL BE SOME SPACE FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS, BUT LETS HOLD OFF ON THAT FOR WHILE.
I copied and pasted this and sent it in an email to a local vascular surgeon.
