marc - I was hoping someone would condense the ECTRIMS presentations
to a more understandable state ..... so the great unwashed public .... can understand what in hell they said .
Can you direct me specifically to where Dr. Zivadov say's he is not sure of the MS - CCSVI connection . I want to read that myself.
And as for the 25% of healthy test subjects having stenosis' ...... but not MS ......... I say this :
1. Healthy people DO NOT have blocked veins nor arteries .
2. If I was one of the so-called healthy test subjects - the 25% ers - that
have restricted flow in my veins ...... but demonstrate zero symptoms
of MS ........ KNOWING that pwMS have restricted veins ......
I would be wrought with concern that this condition may develop into
MS ..... tomorrow ........ and preventitive procedures are denied me.
3. As in your situation ...... it is my gut instinct that restricted veins
are as a result of the surrounding tissue condensing the vein.
such as inflamed tissue expanding --- virus ? -- swelling from injury
or trauma . It could be a bone has been moved . A pinch point.
Or all of the above
4. Mechanically speaking ..... if a soft round tube is flatened .... you can
produce what is called being '' wrung together'' .
This mechanical condition is amazingly strong .
Perhaps Angio is required to pry the vein open .... as the blood
pressure is no match for the strength of the wrung together vein.
5. things are getting mighty interesting .........
