i am just back for a couple of days. I am leaving for china on thursday for ten days. i wanted to catch up here as much as possible because once i am in china everything will be upside down.
The issue of restenosis has been much discussed, and I was wondering, are restenosis issues much different in arteries and veins? Coronary Arteries, for instance, do not collapse, but apparently the jugulars collapse in the prone positition. does the contact between the sides of the veins present a problem if the veins have been stretched and expanded by ballooning? Would sleeping fairly upright for a time period be helprful?
the restenosis issues are very different indeed. in fact the dilatation is also very different in concept as well. it is too late and too complicated to address this question in detail. try to hold your thought and represent the question in mid-september when i can give an answer that helps.
HOWEVER....the jugular veins do not collapse in the prone position. prone means on your stomach, supine means on your back.....both mean you are horizontal. when you are horizontal the normal jugular vein is dilated, not collapsed. When you are UPRIGHT, your jugular vein is collapsed
Again welcome back. You must clue us in on the mystery of the serious matter you were discussing in the Adiroondacks.
i think i will pass on that right now. hopefully i will share with you soon
