Need a workable, simple definition of CCSVI & stenting

Hi everyone,

I've mentioned this elsewhere in posts, but now I'm starting a new thread about the huge need for a short, simple definition of CCSVI that explains the concept and stenting for both the jugular and azygous veins.

Perhaps everyone can help develop one???

Otherwise, I'm afraid patients aren't going to be telling their doctors much of anything.

After all, a major symptom in MS is cognitive problems, so a boiled-down definition would help ...

Anyone been to Stanford who has no CCSVI?

Well, the question sounds silly so I must explain it.

Apart from me another german woman had her veins checked by Dr. Simka in Poland via doppler without finding any problems in the jugulars.

But at least in my case Dr. Schelling said after seeing my MRT's that I have quite definitely a problem with the veins concerning the lesions in my head (I also have lesions in the spine but the azygos vein can't ...

what do I need from my GP? (pre/post stent)

I am going in for my first GP doctor visit since I was a child for a full checkup - I have a neurologist, but never had a regular doctor.

But since I am going out to Stanford in December, I thought I should probably get one, to help deal with the post-op blood thinner stuff, etc.

OK, so in addition to letting him take my health measure across the board, I want to prepare ...

Low jugular stenosis, SCM muscle, and inspiration

Collapses low down in the jugular veins, one-sided (unilateral) or both-sided (bilateral) is the second most common type of blockage found by Dr. Dake. They are above the clavicle/collar bone, at the intersection of sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle and jugular vein. The SCM muscle is an accessory muscle of inspiration, i.e. it helps holding up the windpipe when you inhale. In another thread (http://www.thisisms.com/ftopict-8518.html
) we consequently had some discussion ...

Relapser's, Here's your poll about MS symptoms--

Unfortunately we obviously don't have everyones results in the tracking thread. I have added a simple poll just to get an idea of how people are doing. If you have had a procedure (angio or stent) and are RR please fill this out one time!
Thanks
