Hello Dr. Rehan,
Are you Dr. Rehan who is associated with Apollo Hospitals?
I really had few questions and I think this is of interest to many here.
Do you do MRV/US/venography on patients or you rely on the scans done by them (either in their country or locally)?
If you do not do scan yourself, do you recommend a place where (for patients in India) where this should be done?
Are you in touch with the Dr. Z or others who have done pioneering work since this is a new area and looks like lot of Dr's and keeping in touch since they cannot do all the research on their own?
Btw, thanks a lot for your thoughts and welcome to TIMS.
Apart from open minded Dr's like you, lot of people here are responsible for making CCSVI somewhat acceptable.
radeck, a member here at TIMS, survived stent migration to the heart. r has not posted since late january but as far as i know (which is only as much as any TIMS reader could know), is doing as well as can be expected.the risk of death with balloon angioplasty is less than 1-2% while the risk of death with stents is about 1-2% and may go upto 5% reasons being they need to be anticoagulated as they are in a low flow system and also there is chance of stent migration. In the IJV position this means migrating into the heart and this is fatal.
