Not during catheter venography so we don't know if those are real or not. There've been a number of stenoses seen on ultrasound and MRV that weren't there at venography.

Lyon I think it's safe to say that the conditions of the average venous system remain to be understood.

I can't argue with that except to say that while the average system is not yet understood, a large number of systems have at least been seen, and no alarm has been sounded.

Why not just say 'remain to be understood' by you and leave it at that. I'm sure if you asked Dr. Sclafani or Dr. Mehta (nicely) they would be happy to try to fill out the Swiss Cheese of your knowledge of venography. :lol:

sadly .... no amount of published medical studies or opinions of those actually involved with CCSVI intervention ..... seem to sink into the thick skulls out there ....

sort of reminds me of a story I read .... written by a famous athlete ... who wrote about hostile fans in the crowd ..... cursing him .... screaming out vile intentions ... pure hatred ..... and when the game ended .... guess who was all smiles .... and front and centre .... seeking his autograph ?

Yeah .... those very same SOB's .... Human nature :twisted:

When CCSVI becomes everyday .... I already know who will be first in line for it ....... professing support all along .

Regular .... long time TIMS readers ..... know who I mean .............
