A New Review About Diagnosing CCSVI

Postby Shayk » Sun Jun 30, 2013 4:12 pm

Hi all

I've been away but don't think this has been posted yet--

The role of noninvasive and invasive diagnostic imaging techniques for detection of extra-cranial venous system anomalies and developmental variants that was published by Buffalo (BNAC group).

The full article is open access complete with illustrations and discussion about the pros and cons of various diagnostic techniques.

Thought it may be of interest to some.

All the best....

First impressions:

-- a couple of typos: Beggs, not Begss, and waisting, not wasting. (If you have a big belly, a waist goes to waste, even if you're not flabby. :-) )

-- This is a very important paper. Dr. Zivadinov et al have really moved the science along. I am in agreement, and learning a lot from this paper. Money well spent IMHO. Great research in this review. Judging by the ongoing activity in this area, it seems perhaps we need a new Cochrane review.

-- It seems one of the investigators had many drug company interests. Another seemed to have more in the medical devices arena. I guess research costs money; who knew?

-- I'm glad to see a paper investigating plethysmograms.

-- I sure would like to have access to some of these papers. Lots of news to me.

due to the length and breadth of this review .... a busy MrSuccess has not yet examined it in detail. I will say this .... it certainly looks to be of great importance in understanding CCSVI as well as we do , given all the CCSVI unknowns.

I am looking forward to our skilled and wise CCSVI TIMS members , taking it on.

This paper on CCSVI diagnosing should be a very good topic for discussion.

Based on a fast look , I don't see any reason to take Dr.Zivadov to task .

I really liked the IVUS information.

I don't bother with corrrecting grammir nor spealling. :? :razz:

Thanks for posting this document Sharon. It poses more questions than it answers unfortunately for us.
