Eventually radical surgical treatments for CCSVI?

I wonder if there might be some more radical treatments than angiolasty...perhaps for some in the future....surgery?

this was proposed as a possible future solution by one of the Drs in the CCSVI conference in 2009 in Italy-

But the response was that most of the malformations (over 50%) could not easily be accessed surgically. They did say for some it may work.

Perhaps the new venous stents will be designed specifically for veins with hooks, barbs and/or trumpet shape to prevent migration and made out of materials that thwart thrombus formation

We will see much medical development in this field. Right now they use tools made for arterial procedures.

They will also never ignore the importance of venous circulation again.........and they will consider it when thinking through many diseases that they have not found causes for.........many thought to be auto-immune.......

Amen to that... Poor veins, so neglected all these years...

This kind of stuff makes me a little giddy with hope. MS was an autoimmune disease with no antigen ever found. If we look at other autoimmune diseases, which ones have known antigens and which like MS do not? This is where I'd start looking.
