Yes, I noted as much in my analysis and agree with the logic of the position. I'd hoped that had been clear in my little post.

I would like more information on this statement. Dr. Zamboni appears to be under the impression the procedure is an angioplasty without stints. I am now reviewing the patients' statements in another thread on this forum where the posters describe their procedure and it sounds like angioplasty.
What is the difference (and I ask because I truly don't know)? Should I direct my research elsewhere?
Do you happen to have Dr Zamboni's raw data on the 60+ MS patients he did the procedure on in the last couple of years? I sure would like to review that.
Thanks for your comments.
