I have to say that the operators at The Clinics of the Heart are Interventional Cardiologists and this is our most extreme experience looking improvements never seen before with any previous endovascular treatment for cardiovascular diseases, including the coronary intervention.
The interventionalists at this Mexican clinic have not seen the degree of improvements that we show, in their patients for other diseases.
The reason for symptom improvement is logical in that outflow obstructions of blood flow from any organ are damaging to that organ. It will take time and money and efforts for our researchers to prove this but it would be shocking for the outcome not to be in our favor. The hard part is waiting and knowing that our researchers are underfunded in a somewhat hostile environment and that there are established financial interests in the MS market.
The name 'liberation procedure' and 'liberation therapy' are used in the media and in the FDA alert. This makes it seem very alternative but it is garden-variety angioplasty. Angioplasty of outflow obstructions in the major veins that drain the brain and spinal cord. And it is not the veins themselves that are narrowed, but outflow obstructions within the veins, most commonly the valves at the base of the jugular near the collarbone.
We all know this, but I like to repeat it from time to time, because every day there must be someone who has newly heard about CCSVI, and I would like everyone to know the most accurate truth as we can establish it through research and personal experiences of our own and others.
One of my major objections to the FDA alert is that it labels angioplasty of the jugulars to be experimental. Angioplasty of the jugulars is done commonly for central venous stenoses such as thrombosis, in particular in dialysis patients. This is not as rare or as unsafe or as alternative as might be believed.
