Balloon venoplasty alleviates MS symptoms in some patients

Neurologist Mark Cascione, medical director of the South Tampa Multiple Sclerosis Center, was skeptical of CCSVI, but does not discourage patients.

"I am now more on the fence about it," he said. "Is it intriguing? Absolutely. But whether this procedure slows down their MS or addresses the cause of MS, we don't know."

This press was initiated by the participants of the CCSVI Alliance Walk and Roll fundraiser, to be held this weekend in Tampa-- There is still room for the free educational seminar this Friday night. Should be lots of fun--
