I think the bigger statement therein is ...
To identify the presence of CCSVI, all patients will undergo a clinical evaluation by a neurologist, a duplex ultrasound of central extracranial venous system, an MRV, and a venogram. The decision to enroll patient in percutaneous angioplasty for CCSVI will be made at the time of venogram, in select patients that have greater than or equal to 50 percent stenosis of the extracranial central veins including the internal jugular veins and the azygos vein. Extracranial venous ultrasound will be performed at 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months following the procedure or if clinical symptoms recur. MRV and venograms will be performed at 12months and 24 months or if clinical symptoms recur."
That meaning, they know it's going to work in the short term ... let's see about the longer term and see what/why it happens.
I think they also mentioned 2nd treatments if restenosis occurred.
VERY EXCITING STUDY!!! (Too bad there even has to be a study).
