Dr. Ziv Haskal now presenting "SVC Syndrome: does it teach us about CCSVI?"
SVC syndrome is any condition resulting from obstruction of superior vena cava
Dr. Haskal: SVC syndrome well documented. Stents, compression, ballooning common practice
Dr. Haskal: SVC syndrome rarely leads to treatment of internal jugular vein
Dr. Haskal: SVC syndrome has same issues with stents (used for SVC since 1992). Teflon materials promising.
Dr. Haskal: High incidence of under diagnosed SVC syndrome. Neurological exams pretreatment rare
Dr. Haskal: SVC syndrome symptoms (non MS) sometimes corrected with CCSVI treatment
Dr. Haskal: SVC syndrome may have crossover symptoms with CCSVI. Needs to be diagnosed & treated earlier
Dr. Dake has made the comparison between SVC syndrome and CCSVI syndrome too. I think it is worth considering the similarities. It would be of interest to know if svc syndrome led to neurological symptoms or signs or if treatment relieved them. The superior vena cava would have constant flow, unlike the jugular which has diminished flow when upright, but still has issues with stents.

Dr. Dake told me and Jeff (after Jeff reported his symptom relief) that he had seen similar improvements in fatigue and cognitive fog in those he'd treated for SVC syndrome.
