Have you read the German and Swedish studies commented in the Wall Street Journal?

Did these studies use the doppler ultrasound with the right protocols?
By the way, I found this picture quite amusing. Rox

Sinan used the balloon as a diagnostic tool to "feel" around in the vein. the narrowings were impressive. It was one of the major points i took away from the meeting
Doc Siskin mentions they developed their own "flared" stent.
[color=blue]Is the use of flared stents going to be the standard and how much of a flare are we talking about? Flared which way - up or downstream? Can other docs do this?

Many thanks for The Symposium a week ago!
Another technical question, I don't think it has been much discussed so far:
- What pressure is being applied to the balloons - are there different cathegories of baloons based on pressure?
pressures generated are between 8 and 30 atmospheres. That is the equivalent of the pressure of the ocean on top of you 1000 feet under the surface. It is a lot of pressure. Fortunately it is contained within the balloon.
How insightful and as the Anals noted, "important."
How does it advance the science of this if you don't actually attempt to replicate the work of Dr. Zamboni?
I personally tested the CCSVI theory using tarot cards and was "not able to reproduce the findings by Zamboni et al. " I should submit my results to the growing evidence that CCSVI is not real at least when you don't actually test for it.
Hi Dr. Sclafani,
this is a side view of my jugular veins. The right one(on the left side of the picture) is obviously narrower.What concern me is that there are 2 collateral veins that take over right after the jugular vein exit the bony ostium.
I think they are collaterals because they insert at 90 degrees to the main vein.
1: Do you agree that they are collaterals?
2: Is it safe to balloon collaterals considering they usually are smaller and more fragile veins? Have you seen a similar situation in the past?
Thanks again for your expert opinion.
