It could have been a coincidence but that was the longest period I have been seizure-free for years. I am curious about whether you have any experience with the relationship of seizure disorders to venous malformations and if anyone has captured data on seizures and CCSVI procedures. Or maybe other professionals you know have some info on this? Have you seen many people with seizures in your experience, whether or not they have CCSVI? Is this something vascular surgeons deal with anyway? My neuro is thinking lately we should be looking at mito disease or leukodystrophies instead of the MS dx, but I wonder if CCSVI would still help since I still showed abnormalities on venogram. Thanks for any info.
i have seen few patients with MS and seizure disorder so far in my short time treating ccsvi. a few patients have described a history of seizures as children but none had seizures as adults
