SIR 36th Annual Scientific Meeting (Chicago IL) March 26 – 31, 2011

Neurointerventions II: Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI)
http://www.sirmeeting.org/index.cfm?do= ... odeID=1039

CCSVI is a hemodynamic manifestation of outflow obstruction or resistance manifested by memory loss, mental confusion, fatigue, headaches, ataxia, weakness and sensory deficits.

The cause of CCSVI appears to be venous outflow obstructions due primarily to truncular malformations of the jugular and azygos veins. The use of endovascular techniques has been reported by Paolo Zamboni to improve symptoms and reduce exacerbations.

This workshop will describe the clinical presentations, the use of ultrasound for screening, the venographic appearance, the therapeutic options and the pitfalls of diagnosis and treatment. In the last half of the workshop we will present a series of clinical case examples and discuss them with the audience.

Objective:
At the end of this session, the learner should be able to:
1. Understand the pathology, the pathoophysiology and hemodynamic manifestations, and clinical presentations of CCSVI
2. be able to describe the various screening, diagnostic, and surveillance approaches to CCSVI
3. recognize the venographic appearances of CCSVI and a formulate a strategy for their detection
4. develop a coherent and effective treatment strategy
5. recognize and treat complications of thrombosis and restenosis

Coordinator(s):
Salvatore Sclafani, MD, FSIR
Speaker 2(s):
Roberto Galeotti, MD Kenneth Mandato, MD Sandy McDonald, MD Fabrizio Salvi, MD Salvatore Sclafani, MD, FSIR

Wow! This is exciting. Not even a mention of MS.

Idea for fundraiser: Someone (like CCSVI Alliance) could put a video feed to a nearby hotel conference room and charge admission to the general public. I know I'd be there.

Produce a SIR Publicity Campaign Please

If you live within commuting distance of the venue and have had de-stenosis or are waiting for an appt please please support CCSVI by simply handing out info packs to doctors. Remember most doctors are human beings so YOUR human story is better than even well presented literature. (Its the reason that pharma spends billions on drug reps).
We are opposing a well organised group (neuros) so need to use the techniques pharma uses.
CCSVI Alliance did not ask to post this and I have probably given them a slight logistic headache if there are many volunteers but CCSVI advocates must use tried and tested methods to get our story across.
