Where you are getting your facts? I am one of Dake's early stent patients treated September 2009 with secondary progressive MS. I can't say the procedure has stopped my MS progression, but I can say that it has helped lessen certain symptoms. I had a new area of numbness pop-up about 9 months after the procedure, and at its worst, physical fatigue and dizziness are worse now than before the procedure.
(I'm probably over-reacting to your statement, which on second read was in reference to rrms. I get a little defensive about the question of whether CCSVI treatment will stop progression. It hasn't in my case.)
