This isn't even Canada, which (sorry Canadians) is something of a third world when it comes to CCSVI.

If Zamboni had 50% restenosis, how could it not be likely? Also with the newer more aggressive methods that what Zamboni used and the deviance from the suggested anticoagulants by Zamboni (not antiplatelet like Plavix), I believe it raises the risk of clotting.
To me this is a red flag against Pacific Interventionalists.
Fogdweller, are they willing to see you, they just don't think it's likely to be restenosis? Or are they not willing to see you?
This isn't even Canada, which (sorry Canadians) is something of a third world when it comes to CCSVI. This is the US and people are still falling through the cracks?

But I have been a nurse 38+ years and its been around most of them.
Originally done for venous stenoses and strictures seen in renal dialysis patients, this is NOT a new procedure or new tools , just a new application. It is considered a safe minimally invasive procedure.
