This is encouraging. A sane voice, like the other sane doctors we know of, and he is thorough and reasonable, said so much that is needed, and needs to be heard.
My only personal issue is in the etymology of the word Liberation, and how it has been misconstrued, because it is a loaded word (which we have discussed here at Tims) but it is unfair to Zamboni and Salvi to suggest that the origin of the naming of the procedure was to suggest that those of us with MS are being liberated from the disease.
Zamboni told me himself, when I was treated by Salvi in 09 in Italy, where we lived for three years, that the naming of the procedure came from hearing Salvi use the word in relation to the 'liberation' of blodd flow, and Zamboni liked this and so he named it The Liberation Procedure.
Never did Zamboni suggest this is a 'cure' for MS, which is what is implied by suggesting that the procedure was named this because it would 'liberate' us from MS.
I just think it's very important not to misconstrue why Zamboni named it as such, but it is clear that the renaming of the procedure simply to angioplasty is important because of the way those of us with MS started to use the word, again, not with the same intention it was initially used.
I am sure Zamboni would not want to hear that people think he named the procedure the Liberation as if this would liberate us from MS.
So I certainly don't mind using the medical term of angioplasty, but I am discouraged to hear Andrew's speak of it as if he himself does not realize that this was not how it originated.
Otherwise, he is a wonderfully clear doctor, and I am so happy to have seen him speak for CCSVI!! Thanks for posting.
