Some MS patients with vascular disease get treated

Postby frodo » Mon Jan 06, 2014 5:56 am

Some MS patients with vascular disease get treated regularly. I post this paper just in case anybody needs to use it as an argument supporting the vascular treatment of MS patients.

Off-pump coronary surgery in a patient with multiple sclerosis.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24364009

Abstract

Surgery in patients with multiple sclerosis, the most common autoimmune demyelinating disorder of the central nervous system, represents a challenge for surgeons and anesthesiologists because of the reported risk of relapse of the neurologic symptoms in the perioperative period. In this report, we describe the management of a patient with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis and critical coronary artery disease, who underwent an uneventful off-pump coronary artery revascularization. The issues pertaining to the performance of coronary surgery revascularization on patients with multiple sclerosis are discussed.

Yup. This is why we need to see CCSVI established as a disorder in need of treating in its own right. Coronary surgery was not done to improve the MS, it was done to improve the coronary disease. We need to know if CCSVI needs to be done to improve the CCSVI-related blood flow and symptoms in their own right.

This will never happen, because neurologists believe what they want to believe, and are unwilling to admit, even in 2014, that CCSVI even exists. The ones who admit it exists will not support, will advise against, treatment by venoplasty, of people with "MS". Even if many patients have had the procedure without incident, relapses will still be held to be a danger to those who have the"MS".

Its only chance of being recognized as a threat to human health at all, will have to be to cardiac or vascular health, by people outside neurology. Neurologists own the brain. Alzheimer's, ALS, Parkinson's patients will not have their disease's vascular components recognized. Neurology owns those diseases too. Isn't Dr. MacDonald a cardiologist? He cannot treat CCSVI, even though he is allowed to charge money to test for it. I think a disease's chances of being operable are inversely proportional to the amount of drug profits being made on pharmaceutical treatments, especially long-term treatments.

My cardiologist made sure I understood that I was going to be on these drugs (statins and BP medications) for life. I am very pessimistic about my chance of surviving my "MS". Even if a cure were found today, I would never live to see it made available until and unless some big pharmaco could nail down a patent. I'm very pessimistic about a whole lot of diseases, because these companies control the US and Canadian governments.

Look at the reaction there has been to CCSVI. A cure? Don't be daft.
