Though most died of cancer, two lived on to 8 and 18 years with no "apparent neurological consequences" In other words, the one vein they recontraucted worked pretty well and the people seemed to get by with the one vein. I would argue those people should be evaluated with MRi for ventricular lesions typical of MS to see if 8 years of this has allowed one or two silent lesions to develop....but be that as it may it does point out that reconstruction of these veins is not unheard of.
