I don't know what to do, the doctor did not want to redo the balloon angioplasti: said that it makes no sense, and sent me home. I am desperate, is there any hope for me?
What can be done in my case?
He has not been back to answer this but he will be. I am pretty sure the answer is YES there is hope for you. Your doctor did right to not stent there. Dr. Sclafani is saying that it is not where the blockage is. The blockage is lower down. This blockage still needs to be found.
What country are you in? Do you know of any docs with CCSVI experience in your country?
A blockage lower down causes low flow in the vein. This low flow allows the artery to press on the vein. But if the not-yet-found, lower-down blockage is fixed, the vein will be stronger and have better flow. Then the artery will not be a problem for it.
There is lots of hope for your case. Best wishes.
Dear Cece and Dr.Sclafani,
Thank you for your reply. I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and balloon dilatation have made in Serbia, in Belgrade Dedinje hospital. I'm sending you a discharge summary from the hospital, which is visible from my situation.
This is a letter from the hospital
43 years old patient, admitted for additional evaluation.
In June this year was the hospital treated at our institute, when the planned flebografy dilatation and eventual left jugular vein. Then, after ultrasound and scanner processing, and made diagnostic and partial dilatation, ie. venous confluence of both sides were dilated, and the middle segment of the left jugular vein was not successfully dilated due to anatomical anomalies, or pressure on the veins of the bulbus of the carotid artery.
During the procedure, then, there was bradycardia and hypotension. The patient is in serious condition, it is about multiple sclerosis, slowly progressive type, can not to independently walk.
Upon receipt at our institution, patients and exposed to an extended vascular-neurological council, where it was decided to further interrventne procedures do not try because the above-mentioned position bulbus carotid artery and jugular vein to the left keeping in mind that during the last dilatation occurred hypotension and bradycardia.
Therefore, forgive the patient departments.
