Dr. Zamboni at AAN. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0bDdwbt ... re=related

He has a nice calm voice, doesn't he? If only they would agree that compassionate safe balloon venoplasty is better than no treatment at all, and better than death.

The conclusion of the guy interviewing him was, "Don't jump the gun," while Dr. Zamboni himself seemed to be saying that continuing or discontinuing medications or never having taken them made no impact on the findings he had seen (although he still discourages discontinuing) and that for a patient who is doing well, waiting is a good choice, but if not doing well or getting worse rapidly, neurologists should come onboard in offering this on a compassionate basis. Go ahead and jump the gun, in other words, particularly if your MS is worsening. Angioplasty is reasonably safe, it is performed all the time.
