Dr Simka said similar things to me a couple of weeks back. My stent was positioned at the valve in a way they felt it could not migrate. Interestingly, there was a cardiac specialist on his surgery team - this is the guy suited out in green on the Polish doc, starring Erika. Given I had the treatment the same day as Radeck, in hindsight it was kinda reassuring.
There is no right or wrong at the moment with CCSVI. From all reports and overall, Dr Dake has done a superb job. However, one aspect of Katowice which I valued immensely was the team aspect, the deliberate cautionary approach and the collective energy from Simka, Ludyga and the 2-3 other specialists on the team.

Well - I asked him about this, and he said that maybe the US doctors are using too many stents, and maybe in the wrong places.
