Progressive dilation would just mean dilating it again and again? All in a row or does the patient get a break between rounds?

progressive dilatation is performed to mature arteriovenous fistulas for dialysis. dilatation of 2-4 millimeters is done at two week intervals.
In CCSVI we might be compelled to do it more quickly, based upon whether the patent ican easily return. Absent the practicality of return for additional dilatation, we have to dilate using a group of progresssively lsthrt snhioplsdy nslloond.
