Stents in Poland

Postby Brainteaser » Sat Jul 05, 2014 8:03 pm

I was one of the first to have a jugular stent inserted in Poland - unfortunately.
My neurologist wants an MRI but the hospital won't do it without knowing the type of stent.
I have contacted Poland a number of times but without much luck.
My GP suggests trying the Polish Embassy.
Anyone have any suggestions or know the type of stent used?
Thanks

Hi Robert,

Yes, obviously I contacted Dr Simka and I have attempted repeated contact with Poland for over a year.
My operation was in November 2009, incidentally on the same day another patient, Radeck had a stent migrate. This was a difficult period which I'm sure a few doctors would like to forget.
Thanks for the info regarding your Neptune stent but I think I probably need something more official in writing to satisfy the hospital doing the MRI.

Hi Phil,

I asked because i had the same issue, but got a good reply.....so that made me wonder...

I know that in the end of 2009 Dr. Simka was in the try-phase, feb 2010 the Euromedic official treatment started.
Suppose administration was not the strongest point in that time....BAD THING!!

95% of he stents made after 2005 are MRI proof...but hey, what about the 5%?? you cant take any risk.

I feel sorry for you, can any doctor identify he stent via a full color CT scan?
I had one, the stent is fully visible..

just my 2 cents.

regards,

Robert

Actually, I got no querries regarding stents during last 2 years or so. Maybe the questions were directed to a wrong address?
Anyway, there are some limitations regarding stents only afterduring first few months after implantation, thus MRI can be safely performed irrespective of the type of -if the procedure was done long before. The only exception is the use of very strong (like 7T) MRI machine, yet there are only a few such "monsters" worldwide and probably not a single one in Australia.
details of stent implanted should be present of "information card" given to the patient. In a case such an information is missing or document is displaced, please contact Dr. Ludyga (t.ludyga@poczta.fm) look for details in hospital's archive.

Dear Dr Simka,

Does this email ring a bell?

"4/9/13

to mariansimka, Sal, Clyneekwa

Dear Dr Simka,
I had a CCSVI treatment with you in November 2009.
I am now proposing a CCSVI treatment with Dr Sclafani in New York.
Please forward a copy of my medical records to Dr Sclafani and a copy to me by return email.
Thank you.

Regards,
Philip''


A request for medical records would include details of the stent used, I should think.

You apparently passed the matter on to others at Euromedic where things have stalled. I don't recall getting any discharge papers and I told them that on 4/11/13.

Robert above suggests those treated in 2009 might have been sort of guinea pigs. I hope that was not the case.

You will recall that I was referred to you by Prof Zamboni and you supervised my treatment personally, so I think the best way forward regarding my request for documentation might be for you to personally get across it.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear Dr Simka,

Just bumping this up to check if you have found my medical records yet. You will recall that I asked you for them 15 months ago. That's when you passed the matter across to others at Euromedic where nothing much has happened since. You were referred to me by Prof Zamboni who I saw in Ferrara. He said you were the best practitioner for CCSVI, however you may be interested to learn that as a result of this treatment I spent 22 months in a Melbourne hospital.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would take appropriate action to provide me with my documentation ASAP.
