I'm glad that your doc will contact Zamboni. The fact that he does not test for the Azygous means that he is still learning how to diagnose CCSVI.
If you can send your doc this article:
http://www.fondazionehilarescere.org/pd ... 8-ANGY.pdf
There Zamboni explains that CCSVI is characterised by four types of hemodynamcis patterns (A,B,C,D). In A, B, D types the azygous vein is involved. Your doctor is only considering type C that is jugulars stenosed but normal azygous.
Overall Zamboni found that 86% of the tested MS patients had a problem with the azygous vein (stenosed, obstructed, twisted and so on). See page 185.
According to Simka's testimony in Canada he found:
1) CCSVI is highly correlated with MS.
Only 3% of MS who have been tested were negative for CCSVI (using doppler ultrasound, mrv and standard venography)
2) Localisation and severity of venous lesions significantly affect the clinic course of MS.
3) Injury to optic nerves were found more often in cases with unilateral lesions in the internal jugular veins. Whilst, bilateral stenoses in internal jugular veins were less frequent in this pathology.
4) More disabled patients were found to suffer from bilateral and or severe occlusions in the internal jugular veins.
5) The patients with stenosed azygous vein presented with the most aggressive clinical course of the disease.
Mention point number five to your doctor.
