1) There is no evidence at present regarding the end results of stents placed in the veins in parts of the body subjected to a wide range of movement (like the neck is). There is widespread consensus that stents in such location may fracture.
2) Dr Dake reported a number of complications with the procedure, which are absent in Zamboni's experience with angioplasty (balloon dilatation).
3) Zamboni has not used stents in the jugular veins (I trust he knows why).
4) Dr Dake is a cardio-thoracic surgeon with no neurological background.

What are the complications he reported?
That was my first thoughts (an absorbable stent) when Dr Dake first came forward. I was surprised it was not something we would of already had.GiCi wrote:To my knowledge prof. Zamboni is developing an absorbable stent, which will probably not fracture with movements of the neck.
