So, in this case, if a venogram wasn't performed (i take it as all pictures concern the same patient), the problem would not have been found.
And what about that valve? How did you make it "invisible"? I mean, balloon dilatation made this possible or did you have to do something more invasive?
Hi Dr. Sclafani,
First, I want to say I was moved when you talked about CCSVI as "our" cause. It is wonderful to have another caring doctor on our team. Thanks.
If according to your theory about high stenosis not being real, why would someone (like myself) have such improvement after stenting the jugulars at the C-1, C-2 area? My diagnosis of cyanotic lesions bilaterally at the point just below the jugular bulb as it exits the skull and the remainder of veins in the head and neck, including azygous, unremarkable, leaves me scratching my head when I read your take on these blockages. Could it be true that in some cases there is a true malformation of the veins this high up when none exist below? And are you conferring with Zamboni or other doctors working on CCSVI? Thank you

Thank you. I am really happy for me too!
There was nothing lower for me. I am almost 6 months post procedure and if this is placebo, I hope my mind never quits tricking my body. Seriously, how long can the placebo affect continue?
I have had substantial improvements and they continue to amaze my friends and family. I do, however experience a few symptoms when I have a "bug". Mostly minor tingling, numbness and stiffness in my extremities which does completely resolve once I've gotten better.
Here's another question for you...Do you know why some symptoms would return when the immune sysyem is active?
We are all so different and there is so much to learn, so thank you again for using your talents to figure us out!!!
in your experience, have you found it typical that there is no change in health afterwards outside of the increased temperature in feet? Are you undertaking a neurological exam before and after, and if so, do you see any differences?
Are you finding a lot of the patients returning to you soon after believing that an occlusion has returned? Is it a frequent occurrence that you are finding that blockages ARE returning following treatment? Given the frequency that you are now performing treatment on MS patients, are you finding any patterns of anything emerging, good or bad, of any kind?
