Vein relocation

Postby katelayne » Tue Aug 04, 2009 10:25 am

This probably isn't a novel idea, but I don't know the answer and I would really like to. Would it be possible to take a health vein fron one's leg and replace the obstructed portion of the jugular with that? Stents sound unpleasant and the clotting aspect worries me some. Would this work?

Stents sound more unpleasant than surgically inserting a vein from your leg???!!

I guess its all a matter of personal perspective.

Even if it was possible, it would be drastically more invasive. They'd have to lay you completely open just to get to the lower areas. I don't even want to think about what they'd have to do to get to the areas above your ears. All that sounds way more unpleasant to me than stents. And I think you'd still have clotting risk.

Believe me, it sucks bad enough having that stuff up in there, let alone cutting you open right there!

its like before angioplasty (stents or balloons in arteries) you'd need dangerous open heart surgery instead.

this is the same thing and I don't even know if its something they'd do for MS as it would be far, far too dangerous. I.e. real risk of death dangerous.

Katelayne, Google this site for stent procedures and you will get most of the info you need to put your mind at ease about stents. Peace, Mark

I saw an article in our local newspaper, about a month ago, that surgeons are starting to use dissolvable stents.
Here's something................

People have to remember that arteries and veins are very different.

Arteries when ballooned 'pop' back into place, a plaque is broken and they often stay open just from the balloon.

Stronger narrowing requires stents usually.

Veins are 'bendy' and collapse back a lot more easily hence the use of stent.

The only reason Zamboni didn't use them was because he wasn't aware of such a thing existing for veins, Dake holds several inventions.

Ran it by the Dr.

I spoke with Dr. Dake about the possibility of taking a vein from the leg and patching it in where there is jugular narrowing and he said it would be difficult to get to since it's located (in part) behind the mandible. He said it was possible but would be a very invasive procedure and that "I wouldn't want somebody to get to it".
