I thought this was really interesting. He mentions his stenosis was less than what they usually find with MS. It sounds like CCSVI is a contributing factor, like is suspected with MS.
This might explain the 'healthy'controls with CCSVI - it might not bother them untill a conributing factor ( MS, Lyme, Parkinson etc) kicks in and aggrevates it.
Also, he mentiones a girl with Lyme's who has gotten worse after CCSVI procedure. However her docs think it's because now the infection is flushed out of her brain and it could be more manageble now.
Which sounds a bit like not being able to get the iron out.
It will be very interesting to see how they progress.
Ofcourse there is a huge possibility this poor boy suffers immense placebo, too.
