Each of us who have gone through the procedure, have not only brought our MS brain lesions to the operating table, we have brought other health issues which we may or may not be aware of. Holly had progressive MS; she was in a wheelchair and was dependent on others for some of her care. Her body was not as strong as many of us. She understood the risk...and yet she wanted to play a part in this research.
The doctors have the data... how many times do they get a chance to have a current MRI (within 4 days) before a massive stroke and then have an MRI immediately after the stroke. These images were studied by a group of doctors including neurologists from one of the top neuro departments in the country. Their decision was that the CCSVI surgery was not related to the stroke. I do not believe it is our place to start making assumptions when we do not have the data the doctors did.

It seems like more investigation would be necessary...
Nothing has been posted that should lead you to think that there will not be further investigation.
Now as you go through these various veins to get to the jugs and azygous, could you knock of a plaque
Chris veins do not have plaque
Thank you Marie for your additional comments about strokes.
