Sorry, I don't know how to do that cool white box copy thingy. I do come but don't post as much.
There seems to be more argument and justification than group energy
to dive in and see what swims.
I am NOT discrediting any studies, patients histories, etc.
I am just saying, I was not willing to wait for YEARS of study (of angio, esp) and wanted my veins opened. That is my decision.
And I am not qualified to disect each type of stent, what should be developed, etc.
I trust they went to Med School for that I trust the MD I choose to use his best judgement.
EACH treatment, each area, is a judgement call.
If we don't have data for long term stents in these areas, I really don't care. I am 57 and I am not going to wait for long term data. Use me.
