1st Venous Endovascular Forum in Katowice

http://www.vefconference.pl/

the website lists the speakers, which seems to contain some great CCSVI minds aswell as some neuros, the feedback should be very interesting.

Aug. 7, 09 Doppler Ultras. in Poland, left Jugul. valve problem, RRMS since 1996, now SPMS,
- Nov.3,09: one stent in the left jug. vein in Katowice, Poland, LDN, never on DMDs
- Jan. 19, 11: control venography in Katowice - negative but I feel worse

Erika, great find! This is a whole pdf of his presentation:

WHAT DO WE KNOW AND DO
NOT KNOW ABOUT CCSVI?

Marian Simka

What we do not know:

• Is CCSVI the causal factor for MS, a co-factor or an
epiphenomenon
...

I understand what it would mean if CCVSI is causal, I think co-factor means there are more than one factors causing MS but CCSVI would be included in them, and epiphenomon must mean CCSVI would be caused by the MS?? I am guessing on that last one.

Are we undertreating or overtreating the
patients ?

I've made this point here myself, I agree, this is not yet known and it needs to be worked out. This is one of the reasons I am as big a fan as I am of IVUS, it takes some of the guesswork out of what the IRs are doing because they can see more clearly, if they know what they are looking for on IVUS.

He has a bunch of points, all very good, this is an easy read and worth the reading.
• Are treatments for CCSVI efficient in a long-
term perspective ?
• Which subgroups of the patients can benefit
and which cannot ?

I think every subgroup will benefit from increases in CNS oxygenation. It's all in how benefit is defined.

Here too is Dr. Ludyga's presentation on opthalmological findings and optical coherence tomography!

<shortened url>

220 MS patients were performed catheter
venography to diagnose and evaluate CCSVI and OCT
( GCC AVG, GCC FLV, GCC GLV and RNFL AVG )

• Ocular pathologies were found more often in the
cases of:
- CCSVI limited to only one internal jugular vein,
especially in the cases of severe outflow blockage of
this vein
- asymetric blockages of internal jugular veins

• Venous anomalies of the azygous vein were not
associated with higher risk of ocular pathology.

• MS patients who were not diagnosed with CCSVI
showed exceptionally high prevalence of OCT
abnormalities.

High percentages of retinal pathologies in
non-CCSVI patients indicate that the
mechanism of retinal neurodegeneration in
MS is far more complex and cannot be
expained as an obvious vascular pathology


some of my questions --
* Are there MS patients who do not have CCSVI? (I do not think this has been answered yet.) (Misdiagnosis of MS would be excluded.)
* Why would ocular pathologies be more common if only one jugular is occluded compared to if both jugulars are occluded? How odd.
