The problem in Canada is, that if someone suspects, that they may have a thrombosis after treament the only way to be able to diagnose that is doing a venogram. Doing an utrasound shows a blockage, but what, they cannot tell. They will not do a venogram.
I could be wrong... but I believe they only treat arterial stenosis, not venous stenosis, with angioplasty. Angioplasty is what they are not allowed to do on MS patients. Because the treatment has not yet been proven to be effective. The Canadian government will only pay for proven treatment. That is the drawback to universal health care. And if you want to have a certain treatment that the government does not cover, you are unable to have it done even if you pay for it yourself.
Mr Mostic unfortunate death, from what I read, was that his dosage of anticoagulants was too high. And we know what can happen with that.
