If any one is interested in this. I just got the email.
Dear Ms Wexler
Thank you for your email. Please accept my apologies for the delay in response. With regard to occluded internal jugular veins, there is no prior experience in this particular context. I am using the excimer laser as a means of opening arterial blockages, and indeed to extract IVC filters but I do not yet have experience on the venous side. It is however a perfectly valid proposition and I would be happy to take this forward with you. We will probably need to do some diagnostic tests to define the haemodynamic problem and then to take a view on whether it would be reasonable to proceed.
I am aware that an appointment is awkward with you being in Quebec but several others have contacted me with a similar predicament. Let’s see if this approach has anything to offer before dragging you all the way to London on the off-chance.
Very best wishes.
