Tell me about CCSVI

How do I know if I am a possible candidate for that?
Where is the closest place to So California that is doing it?
Is it still experimental with a huge waiting list?

At the current moment CCSVI is highly experimental - but CCSVI research is moving on a rapid pace. Though the early results (diagnostic and intervention) look promising and maybe in a year or so it might become a real therapy option, for various reasons I dont think its a feasible plan for now (too early in the research process, too few educated centers envolved, long waiting lists, expensive).
Again the CCSVI forum (especially the stickiy-threads on top) would be a very good starting point.
