ISET January 2011

A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

ISET January 2011

Postby Cece » Sat Dec 25, 2010 12:01 pm

ISET has been discussed in this thread: www.thisisms.com/ftopict-14971.html and others but hasn't had a thread of its own that I could find.

Here is the link to the full program:
http://www.iset.org/index.cfm?do=cnt.pa ... e__pg=1013

First, apparently our IRs do a lot of other things besides treat CCSVI. It's an exciting specialization in general. ;)

But let's look at the CCSVI coverage. For starters:
Sunday Jan 16
11:35 AM CCSVI: What is it and What are the Duplex Findings? Speaker: Paolo Zamboni, M.D.
11:50 AM CCSVI: Duplex Scanning Protocols and Techniques Speaker: Phillip Bendick, PhD

Anyone know anything about Phillip Bendick? His is not a familiar CCSVI name. The other speaker, Paolo Zamboni, I've heard of.... :D

8:15 AM Patient Advocacy in Research and Development of New Treatments Speaker: Barry Katzen, M.D.

That was not listed as CCSVI, but it sounds like he may cover the same ground as in this article:

That can't be right, they are both listed in the program as being at 8:20 a.m.!

Here is Dr. Benenati and the SIR statement from August:

Jack Burks is the Chief Medical Officer of the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, here is a lengthy statement from him back in Dec 09. http://msassociation.org/news_center/ar ... sp?a=ccsvi

Sharon Richardson is one of our own and represents CCSVI Alliance.

I'll be at the meeting. This is the first time a major meeting in the US spends this much time on CCSVI. Looking forward to the presentations.

Excellent! more and more vascular doctors in North America ... seeing what so many great doctors already see ...

the interest will spread, the knowledge base will spread and develop ... the treatment options will multiply.

:D

The wave grows ...

Dr. Cumming, very glad to hear you'll be there.

PointsNorth, thanks for the info on Dr. Machan. I'm not sure about his presentation, "Patients I Chose Not to Treat." Even when we hear about one abnormality (high-up hypoplastic vein, dural sinus obstruction) that a doctor might choose not to treat, the patient always has another obstruction that odds are can be treated. There might be patient with comorbidities, I remember there was one of our TIMS members having her heart be off-rhythm IIRC so she was turned away from the procedure but was able to have it a month later.

CCSVI Alliance president Sharon Richardson (Sharon on TIMS) will be making a presentation Monday morning at the Town Hall Forum, speaking on "Trying to get Help"--a short history of patients looking for treatment, the influence of social media, medical tourism, clinical trials and an overview of CCSVI Alliance.

best of luck to Sharon!

So exciting...it's not just our guys getting together and learning from each other once again, it's all the new IRs who are just hearing of CCSVI and then maybe there will be more availability of treatment in more cities and this will continue to grow. :D
