Yes with me, Dr Ludyga tried the balloon first of all but it closed over almost immediately, so he placed a stent there and I have no problems with it at all.
I have the video of the procedure and it is obvious that the vein closes over.
I also believe that as is happening in Poland, will eventually replicated around the world. Dr. Zamboni does not want to advocate the use of stents due to the problems that could occur from this, as what happened at Stanford, but in the long term that will be the way to go.
If you look at the results from Poland you will see that Venoplasty is always attempted first of all and if this is unsuccessful then a stent is then used. There is 100% success rate with the use of stents in Poland and if you are booked for an appointment there you will soon be reassured that these Dr's know what they are doing.
