For most patients valves are the issue. When scarring occurs and the vein shuts down the issue is not getting thru the obstruction....its how do you keep the vein open once you get thru the blockage. In any other vein you would use a stent. NOT in a jugular vein. Jugular stents, especially the entire length of the jugular have poor durability. Nobody in the world has treated more occluded jugulars then myself. I can tell you we don't have the answer for keeping the vein open. That is the problem. The RF wire will help get thru the hard occlusions no doubt. But how do we keep the vein open afterward????
