The operation has been dubbed the 'Liberation Procedure' by those who believe it helps relieve the symptoms of MS, an incurable condition.
It was dubbed "the Liberation Procedure" by a member of Zamboni's team who used the word liberation to describe the blood flow being liberated or opened when the stenosis is ballooned.
I like to keep repeating this, since it's true and all, in hopes that it will stick.
BBC Inside Out's Sam Smith outside the Essential Health Clinic Nonetheless, vein widening - without stents - is now being offered in the UK by a Glasgow-based company called the Essential Health Clinic.
BBC Inside Out presenter Sam Smith went undercover to be scanned by Essential Health - the first stage in the treatment process which in total costs just under £8,000.
She was diagnosed with CCSVI.
London-based vascular surgeon Ian Franklin said of Sam's diagnosis: "This reinforces the concern a lot of people have that some of these anomalies might be present in the normal population and raises the question that it might not be specifically linked with MS."
That is worth discussing, why would a presumably healthy person be diagnosed with CCSVI? Is the ultrasound dopppler accurate? What would be found on her catheter venogram, would it agree with the doppler? What about the idea of permissive lesions, which exist benignly in some but when coupled with a secondary factor can cause a disease process in others?

The company's goal is to reduce its dependence on its multiple sclerosis products and build a new franchise around its experimental drugs to treat hemophilia, an inherited disorder in which the blood does not clot properly.
Yes, good to reduce the dependence on its MS products, just in case all of us patients also are able to reduce our dependence on them.
