I would say that the studies thus far show that congenital defects are actually quite common in the general population and no big deal.
This is not a logical conclusion. MS is a multi-factorial disease of unknown cause. It is possible that congentital defects in veins are one of the factors in MS, in people with a susceptabilty to MS but not in the general population. I have not read any research to prove or dis-prove the idea that congentital defects in veins are one of the factors in MS.

The paper excludes secondary progressive MS from LMS. Stenoses are definitely found in SPMS. So logically the statement cannot be derived from this study. MarkW

Changing the title of this thread is a good idea, dreddk.
