Imagine that all your life you have had this stick that has been hitting you. And yes, you could put Band-Aids on the bruises and take pills and vitamins to help heal the damage – but none of that is really all that effective as long as that stick keeps hitting you. CCSVI is that stick. Once you get rid of the stick, then you have a chance to heal and the Band-Aids and pills and vitamins have a chance to work to heal the body.

A good description.
Braden has done a great job of compiling a lot of the information needed for getting the procedure. There's information on here that I didn't know, such as that the manufacturers of Pradaxa advise against taking aspirin or ibuprofen in conjunction with Pradaxa, but that is weighed against the possibility that a NSAID can reduce inflammation which can reduce the risk of scarring.

Hello Braden,
Not sure if you will pick up this message, but here goes:
It would be great to know which veins were checked by Dr Arata?? (full list please).
Dr Arata does not use IVUS routinely (and may miss some problems) what did he use for you??
You may be mis-quoting Dr Arata in your website as the definition of stenoses includes stenotic (narrowed) valves as well as stenotic veins. Your venograms show stenotic veins which you report as being caused by valve problems. If you want to find out more about stenotic valves look up 'mitral valve stenosis' as an example.
Glad to hear your procedure produced results. Hope you do not need further procedures (veins not investigated or problems missed or procedure is developed) as this happened to Cece and me.
Kind regards,
MarkW

I didn't even go look at images! Very nice. Jugular images show classic CCSVI. The azygous was ballooned in two areas with no waists on the balloons. Ok, Dr. Arata says in the report that there was no focal stenosis in the azygous but there was an abnormal valve in the arch associated with reflux, with resolution of reflux after angioplasty.

Braden must have put this all together some time ago, as his treatment was over a year ago.

Here's the images, with the azygous before-and-after at the bottom of the page. http://www.bradencorby.com/ccsvi/pictures.htm
