..... and that's what parrots do ...
..... just repeat what they hear
seriously now ..... I understand the need to thwart those opportunist's out there that are praying on vulnerable pwMS. This is why there is such an immediate need to 'educate' each other as quickly as possible in all things CCSVI.
A good start is to keep up with all the information available with CCSVI.
Until we learn more ..... the success rate is estimated at 33% improvements after CCSVI treatment ....... 33% no better nor worse ....... 33% ms symptoms continue.
66% is sure as hell better than any DMD can claim as helpful.
I am certain Dr.Parrott means well enough . As a Scientist he wants proof . As do I. And the only way to provide proof is to produce MEASUREABLE data results. I am pleased to say that methods and measuring tools and equipment are under construction.
The MRI was invented in about 1985. It has evolved and improved since then. Today , in it's most up to date form ...... it is only 98% accurate. That 2% is important.
I am very curious about pwMS diagnosed BEFORE 1985. I see an important milestone in MS treatment . Has the MRI helped or hindered pwMS and other neurological problems ?
We have more questions than answers in CCSVI. Dr.Parrott should know that.
