I would guess that doctors can make the difference between normal tissues and edema, especially on children if it is a congenital problem. Or perhaps it is very subtle, but the whole CCSVI theory seems to be very subtle…Cece wrote:I would guess it would not be noticed if it had always been present. CCSVI is chronic so it is not as if a person's face is fine on Monday and swollen on Tuesday?
I don’t understand everything, but I thought that the problem was supposed to be hypoperfusion. There can be hypoperfusion without reflux.cheerleader wrote:vena cava syndrome is a lower blockage...there are no valves involved, so the jugular veins distend upriver, and the swelling is obvious in the face and neck.
In CCSVI, the jugular veins do not distend, and there are valves, as well as a fixed skull upriver. I would assume that this is why some swell, some do not, and it is not as obvious. Remember, we are talking about the brain receiving the brunt of the reflux, where cerebrospinal fluid levels change in response to edema.

In this video, he claims that the face changes after angioplasty and oedema disappears, and shows this slide :
Those pictures are clearly not comparables, because of many differences such as the position of the head and most of all the light. It looks like a TV shopping program that take people for idiots.
But it may be real. Does anybody has experimented this phenomenon ?
