I don't fancy paying another 480zl for an MRI! Do you know, should it have shown up on the MRV that they did?

I would like to go the EHC too but feel I have paid Euromedic a lot of money already....

Haacke's report just says
axail view, the azygos vein shows pinching at it's lower region
sagittel view, the azygos vien has a rough boundary

I thought Euromedic would have at least been interested in Dr Haacke's findings and offered to have a look by doing a venogram for me :?

Hi :)

You could send images to Ameds in Poland ms@ameds.pl
or Prof. Grozdinski in Bulgaria grozdinski@mail.bg for a second opinion,
If you can get Haacke's full protocol done somewhere then he would do a report for you http://www.ms-mri.com/

Because other doctors are finding azygos problems in around 90-95% not the 5% that Euromedic say they are ,there is a very high chance your right
You might find that you’re not lost

This is so interesting Dawna. Thank you so much for telling me.... It's really helped with deciding whether to go to Euromedic for treatment again, or to look elsewhere....

I got a second opinion upon arrival back to USA. Interestingly, the assessment of the stenosed azygous was made from the MRV done in Poland, but I had another Dr. (in USA) analyse it and clearly point out the place where the vein appeared "severely pinched"

I just put the image into my avatar, but am including a big one in this post. This image is from Pacific Internetionalists (I got treated there in December).

My azygous was more than 90% blocked - twisted about itself. It did not stay open when ballooned, so I have a 6mm stent now.

Here's the before and after of my azygous (almost a text book case)

Thank you so much for this info.... Again, very interesting... I'm glad that you got treatment for the azygous issues.
