Dr. Scaflani, may I repeat my question which was probably lost between IBT Posts. Thank you.
I have a question:
Dr. Scaflani, is it true that some people have and some don`t have valves in jugular veins? It is said that you don`t need valves above your heart. I wonder what prevents people without valves to get reflux.
Do you think that an open chest biopsy for a mediastinal tumor followed by radiotherapy to the area could result in scarring and venous narrowing leading to CCSVI and then MS? Have you seen venous stenosis in the setting of radiotherapy in your practice ? If you have, was it amenable to angioplasty alone or did it tend to be more resistant/fragile?
Also when I was on the diet I lost 25lbs which is good, but I was light headed all the time, now that I'm not on the Swank diet I'm no longer light headed. Would you have any idea why?
Thanks again Dr Sclafani for all your time & effort to help us, I wish there were more doctors like you around willing to help.
If the lower stenosis is primary, and the upper is just a consequence of reduced flow, it seems to me relieving the upper stenosis would not have any effect on the collaterals. Am I wrong?
i was speaking to my caregiver about my hopes for ccsvi intervention realistically with the form of progression that i have, not unlike mitch and marc. i told him about you and i said,"he is a truly an angel of mercy." i was surprised by what i said, too.
