Dania, you might feel differently, but I think you are scaring people too much, when you say "this could happen to anyone" without disclosing that in your case (as I understand it) you had aggressive ballooning in Bulgaria, you had a hypercoaguability disorder that increased risks of clotting, and you had prior radiation done to the neck that would have damaged the veins.
I know of an IR, out of 40 patients treated, he had 2 occlusions occur. That's 5%.
Dr. Sclafani, out of 100 patients treated, has had 6 occlusions, all back when he was using aggressive techniques and none since then. So that's a 6% rate with aggressive techniques and a 0% rate, as known so far, with his new techniques.
