Congrats on getting your issues tested and going forward with looking for treatment. Dr. Dake is one of the best doctors out there.
I have a venous angioma, and a number of other people who have been found to have CCSVI also have venous angiomas. To me, it makes sense that people who are prone to congenital venous abnormalities could have them in more than one part of the venous system. (I also have something going on in one of the sinuses.) This is one of the great areas of learning that I hope will come out of studying CCSVI -- how are we similar, how are we different, what works, what needs improvement, etc.
Mine is in my frontal lobes and is not something that was addressed during my angioplasty procedure since that was limited to the veins in the neck and below -- it was not addressing tangled up veins inside my actual brain.
I don't think the VA would complicate any angioplasty, but on its own it can cause symptoms. Dr. Dake could discuss that with you. Everyone's issues are completely individual. I have talked to my own doctors about which of my symptoms probably come from the VA, etc.
Best of everything to you!
