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.
