CCSVI Alliance at VIVA Vascular Conference

Postby cheerleader » Wed Sep 14, 2011 7:43 am

On October 20th, CCSVI Alliance will be hosting an evening Satellite Session at the VIVA 2011 annual conference at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas.

Medical and scientific professionals in attendance at VIVA are invited to join local area MS patients and caregivers to learn about the current and future research on CCSVI.

Dr. Michael Dake and Dr. Manish Mehta will be joined by members of Dr. Mark Haacke's team from Wayne State University and by a local Las Vegas MS specialist.

CCSVI Alliance will open the registration for the patient community in the next couple of days. (Please note - patient registration is not available on the VIVA website)

Hope to meet some of our southwest TIMS members at the conference!

Dr. Dake will be making a presentation at the TCT (transcatheter cardiovascular therapeutics) conference in San Francisco in November, but the Alliance won't be there. I'll update as we come to the end of the year, if I learn of any more conferences including CCSVI in the US.

In Europe, the Vacsculab conference in Italy will have many CCSVI presentations:

here's what I found in Vasculab's scientific program:
afternoon - 17.00, hall A: Cerebro-spinal venous hemodynamics


◦Daniele Righi (Firenze) : Technological achievements of the Echo Color Doppler venous extra- and intra- cranial study

◦Maria Luisa Zedde (Reggio Emilia) : Neurological disorders and the intracranial venous hypothesis

◦Rita Pepe (Roma) : Cerebral venous thrombosis and outcome

◦Marcello Mancini (Napoli) : The Cerebral Circulation Time in the evaluation of neurological diseases

◦Renato Regine (Pozzuoli) Maria Giurbino (Pozzuoli) M De Siero (Pozzuoli) A De Sio (Pozzuoli) A Ragozzino (Pozzuoli) : CCSVI, angioplastic treatment: our protocol and preliminary results.


Giuseppe Morelli Coppola (Napoli) : CCSVI and MS - preliminary results in 350 treated patients


Sharon, thanks for those listings from the Veith conference. It's interesting how they broke it up into an Enthusiast's view, a Skeptic's view, an Interventionalist's, a Neuro-interventionalist, another interventionalist's (Dr. Dake's), and a Vascular Surgeon's view.

I want to hear from the neuro-interventionalists about their opinion on blockages and malformations of the sinuses, in MS patients, but this particular neuro-interventionalist will be speaking about the status of the PREMISE RCT trial. Ok, I am interested in that too.

But to keep on topic with the original post, is anyone from TiMS thining about attending the Las Vegas conference and the CCSVI Alliance satellite session?
