Without research to back up this assumption, I consider this a big assumption, Marc. We've seen plenty of reports of clogged up stents.marcstck wrote:I also found it very interesting that Dr. Mehta talks about doing venous bypass surgery as a possible technique to combat venous occlusions.
Yes, that is interesting!
I found this to be a really interesting and very encouraging interview. I liked that Dr. Dake spoke to the notion that some feel the process is moving too slow, but that he feels we actually have moved very fast in one short year. And only one year ago, Dr. Mehta admitted that he was a "nay-sayer". Both doctors see the need for blinded trials, and want to get moving on them as soon as possible.
And Marc, I think that "educated conjecture" is pretty exciting, and even having "more questions than answers" is pretty exciting. If researchers and doctors are looking down a new road, that is better than travelling down the same old, worn path for 150-ish years. Great job on editing and thanks for all you do to inform and share your knowledge and experience.
Great to listen to this-- thanks for posting, cheer!

Then again, I guess we won't know exactly what he meant unless someone can ask him directly…
