I am not sure how the flow could be unimpeded if there is an immobile valve blocking the way?

The valve was non-functioning and open all the time whether standing or lying down - basically might as well have been no valve there at all. Does that make sense Cece? There seemed to be nothing wrong with my LIJV, just the right.
Wondefulworld, the symptoms you describe are consistent with an azygous problem. When standing your blood cannot go thru the azygous so it goes thru your jugulars. When supine the jugulars should be working anyway. So you will not benefit from IBT. But you might benefit from CCSVI treatment.
I had this on my doppler test. Direct visualization of the azygous is supposed to be possible by MRV using Haake's protocols. So if you are in th US and can get on a Hubbard trial they would look at it for you.
If you have no issues in the LIJV, that also somewhat supports the consensus that you have an azygous issue, because it is common for there to be stenoses in two veins, not just one, and with the LIJV out, that leaves the azygous as suspect.
When is your appt with Dr. Sclafani and his IVUS? Wink Cool
