Of course one underfunded man (Zamboni) can't provide a water tight case at this early point but the burden of providing an argument that seems interesting and sensible enough to draw the interest of the rest of the medical community is up to him and other pro CCSVI people and he/they obviously haven't succeeded in that yet.
Randall T. Schapiro, MD
President, The Schapiro Multiple Sclerosis Advisory Group
... Following a short stint as a faculty member and director of the MS Clinic at the University of Minnesota he founded the first comprehensive MS Center in 1977, The Fairview MS Center, which was renamed, The Schapiro Center for Multiple Sclerosis at the Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology in 2004. In 2009 he retired from private practice to consult and advise about topics related to MS. He currently is the president of The Schapiro Multiple Sclerosis Advisory Group based in Eagle, CO.

I guess I will excuse him on this one. It's hard to change one's way of thinking. I doubt he has seriously looked into the vascular research on CCSVI and MS, it's kneejerk dismissal, but he's still one of the good guys, just not one of our good guys.
Is there one neuro out there that does have an open mind about CCSVI?
Maybe they do not accept CCSVI because of the knowledge they have accumulated though years of schooling,private practice, and research? It would have been nice if he would of laid out some specific reasons...

make no doubt about it ..... Shapiro knows MS.
In addition to being a piss poor stand up comic ..... Shapiro needs to work on his shtick ...... making fun of someones name ..... is lame .
Now that Shapiro has made his move ..... he's fair game now ..... as is our beloved Dr. Freedman ....
Welcome to the Jungle ..... Dr. Shapiro
Poor old Shapiro can't be blamed for his long held beliefs and opinions .
Shapiro pre-dates MRI's and the information age - The Internet .
Poor old Shapiro must pine for the day's when his patients were at his mercy for their health information ......
Using text books older than dirt ..... Shapiro made a damn fine living providing unproven theories ..... to treat a medical condition that continues to baffle the most educated medical minds ... out there.
The smart ones say .... I'm not sure ...... let's look at this problem from another view ..... let's look at everything ..... what do you think about this ?
Those like Shapiro ....... are convinced they have the correct solutions .
Man ...... what an arrogant prick .
yes .... it takes one to know one
Maybe they do not accept CCSVI because of the knowledge they have accumulated though years of schooling,private practice, and research?

I say ... Adios Shapiro .... don't let the door hit your ass on your way out .......
Perhaps Shapiro should confine himself to utterances such as 'I don't know' and 'Walking backwards to happiness'!
