NEW! Power point presentations from ISET 2013

Postby cheerleader » Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:20 pm

From Dr. Dake and Dr. Siskin---informative slide shows from their presentations at ISET. Thanks to CCSVI Alliance (www.ccsvi.org) for posting the links on Facebook today.

There is a boatload of information here----good for all who want to understand the current state of CCSVI research.

yay
much appreciation to ccsvi.org & the doctors for sharing this

It's nice to see IVUS images in Dr. Dake's pdf.

The "Establishing Association" page lays out the association quite simply:
Many with CCSVI have no MS. Many with MS have CCSVI. Some without CCSVI have MS.
CCSVI is neither necessary nor sufficient for MS.
Yet an association still exists as long as the two proportions (MS with and without CCSVI) are very different; ...specifically, a higher percentage of MS patients have CCSVI than do not and those have more frequently progressive disease course.

Dr. Siskin's presentation:

He mentions that defining normal is one of the core issues in the controversy around CCSVI. He shares a slide showing five internal jugular veins on a continuum from normal to mild to moderate to severe stenosis. Great slide. (When people talk about restenosis, this is something that's often neglected. A stenosis that was originally severe might return as a mild or moderate stenosis. If there are complications, a mild stenosis that was treated might become a severe stenosis. Degree of stenosis differs but we don't know if a severe stenosis has worse sequellae compared to a mild stenosis.)

"All published and presented studies evaluating angioplasty for CCSVI have reported a measureable improvement in one or more chosen outcome measures." looks good

'To Do' lists and doubters vs supporters is all very reasonable and thought out.
