I don't know if they would or not, they wouldn't have the standard two obstructions, just one.
did you know that i had the jugular vein of my wife ligated about 30 years ago. I have mentioned that in the past. not sure about on TIMS.
for pulsating tinnitus after second pregnancy. what the heck, i thought, you dont need both jugular veins. she has not developed any symptoms that i can see. But she hasnt had an MRI yet

Upon hearing of CCSVI one of the first things that came to mind is that it's going to be found preferable to replace/reroute some of these situations but it's also essential to keep in mind that among obstacles to be overcome is that room is at a premium in the neck, the neck has a wide range of movements and moves unbelievably often.
With that in mind, if the theory of CCSVI proves out, a solution will have to be found despite the obstacles to be overcome but with "first do no harm" being the goal, despite patient willingness, Doctors are going to have to make every effort to make sure that they aren't causing worse problems in a minefield of problems they could cause
