I didn't know that about New Brunswick! This news is among the first signs I have seen that Canada is starting to become humane! Fantastic news.
What I would like to see is a clinical trial that combines venoplasty treatment with all the armaments we have, stents if necessary but not necessarily stents, IVUS, with testing and monitoring with all the instrumentation we have (BOLD, SPECT, SWI, PWI, plethysmography, etc...), and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
We can prove that the ravages of this disease are reversible, and we can do it in Canada. Why try to spend all our money on stats backed up by hundreds of years of more patient grief, to mollify drug vendors who already make plenty of money? Why not spend it on finding good solutions?
