EHC (Essential Health Clinic) at ISNVD

p 87 of the abstracts has the EHC abstract on Treatment Outcomes for CCSVI in the UK
http://www.isnvd.org/files/ISNVD%20Abstract%20Book.pdf
It's a report on 70 patients treated for CCSVI, with 6 months follow-up. That follow-up is something that's been lacking in research overall and is of great interest.

91% of patients reported improvements post angioplasty of which 14 later relapsed and 50 (70%) have maintained improvements at 6 months. 6 patients reported no improvements post angioplasty.

An early rule of thumb was that 1/3 of patients would have no improvements. Here only 1/10 of patients approximately had no improvements. Excellent!

I really wish there were more papers that just publish results like this. Like every clinic should publish. Of course if you're making money from it the data might get skewed.
