Stent vs Venoplasy / Ballooning

Postby manojag22 » Sun Apr 18, 2010 8:15 am

Hi, MS'ers, if you got yourself diagnosed for CCSVI or planning one, and if there is stenosis of veins, please do not allow your Dr. to put a STENT, until unless its very necessary and risk reward in favor of it, venoplasty/balooning as of now highly is reccomended.

The current stents are really not ment for veins and there are lot of side effects of blood thinning med, like Plavix and coumadin as well as aspirin. Aspirin you might hv to take it for lifetime and its very prone to create ulcers.

Please Please, evaluate option very carefully...
