My thought on risks of stents is that the risks are different above and below the heart (effect of gravity). Explaining this to patients may help.
I was told the same thing and was lucky enough after the second time of having ccsvi went for the third time and was lucky enough to get the jsa. I am one of the first. I was begging for the stents and the doctors steered me clear of this I am so lucky to have a team of doctors come up with this.
