criteria for procedure

Postby sbr487 » Wed Dec 02, 2009 2:05 am

I have one question (probably very basic) on the procedure ...

What is the criteria Drs are adopting currently in order to quality for the procedure?
Given that many a times it takes decades to get diagnosed with MS, are they insisting that prior MS should be dignosed for them to proceed further with any tests?
Or they simply go by the neck scan to conclude that there is a venous insufficiency and hence qualifies for a correction procedure.

Hi.

CCSVI is a different issue. Let's pretend that it has nothing to do with MS. Supposing that you find a blocked vein at your leg. Shouldn't it be fixed? The same applies to virtually any vein. So, if you find some blocked juggular or azygous, they have to be fixed.

HTH,

No. I do agree with you. Logically speaking that should be the approach.
But is that how the Dr's are approaching this currently?

I am definitely looking for a future when if a person presents with some of the neuro disorders, scanning neck for blood reflux should be one of the standard test. I dont think anyone wants to wait until lesions appear in the brain and start having symptoms and then use this as a litmus test.

For example, I had gall bladder stones w/o any symptoms that were discovered accidentally. My surgeon's take was why wait until these are going to create complications. Lets take them out.
