like ive been saying on every thread i comment on, i think people are jumping the gun on getting treated. we need to find the cause of stenosis. I believe it to be from things(bones, muscles) putting pressure on the veins to the point it collapses. getting treated is just temporarily fixing things but eventually the vein will close back up and even worse because now the vein is weaker from being stretched,so when it collapses again it will be worse like we're seeing. have we seen stenosis on different parts on a vein? why havent we seen stenosis happen at different parts of a vein that has been stented? why is it that only that small section of vein is getting stenosised ?
i think everyone should get tested but not treated then have where is showing stenosis fixed(upper cervical care, TOS, and CTOS) then if needed getting treated.
I cant be the only one thinking about this?
You are right. We should get our head out of the sand and face reality. We need to find anwsers to these questions, otherwise we just lose time. Painting rosy pictures does not help us, it only misleads us.
We talk about lot of things here on different threads, but I have never seen a short study from a doctor that would explain his thoughts on what causing stenoses, how it can be treated and what are the potential complications after operation and why they happen.
I have been in contact with several IRs but I have never got full answers to my questions, only half ones in short sentences. Wouldn't it be easier to post a few pages about these issues by an IR?
We should be aware of that restenoses will happen to all of us who have no stents. It is just a matter of time. So, this is all of us problems. With stents there are other issues, even many IRs are strongly against it.
