We had good news and bad news

Yesterday, my husband went for a phlebography in Paris, with an interventional radiologist. For those who don't know, my husband had a doppler done with one of the doctors working with Dr Zamboni, and he told my husband that his left Jugular appeared absent. The good news was that the left jugular was operable. He had 3 places of stenosis, and the doctor was able to balloon them, but one will need further ballooning, as ...

CCSVI as underlying cause


I am interested to know if any of you think that sometime in future CCSVI will treated as a disease by itself rather than being just a diagnosis support tool. For example, First diagnose MS then check for CCSVI and then treat it.

Our past MRI's

Excuse my English, I'm french-speaking and never write in your language.

I've been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1980. I had my first MRI in 2001, and five others since that time.

Since I saw CTV's program W5 last friday on CCSVI, I wonder why our radiologists didn't notice venous anomalies in the data from our past MRI's. Is it so difficult to detect a twisted or malformed vein?

Thanks in advance.

Hope But Hopeless

Having watched the documentary (I live in Canada). I am filled with such hope, I mean it all makes total sense in my opinion . I am a 33 year old women who has been sick since 20 . It started with bladder problems, then 2 years later I developed left drop foot and heaviness in my thighs. A year later I was diagnosed with MS, after they initially thought it was either spinal tumor ...

Oh, Radeck?

Expected to hear from Radeck by now. High stents are the only thing I can think of that would keep such a man quiet this long, but I didn't think high stents were in the cards for him. Anyone know anything?

My Neuro REFUSES to complete forms for CTEVD Study in Buffal

Hi all...

I haven't posted here much but I've been following since February or so. I have also posted on the FB page and I'm more active at Brain Talk.

So yup, uhuh. My Neuro flat out REFUSED to complete the forms to allow me to potentially participate in this study.

Okay, so I've had the forms for a week or so and yes, I didn't fax them to the MS Clinic until 8:15 Monday ...

Is anyone aware of who the contact is regarding the study in Hamilton? I am not really sure if it is being carried out there but I have heard rumours. Does anyone have the name of a contact doctor to become a patient in the CCSVI study anywhere in Canada or the U.S.? I have had MS since 1981 and have fared well until 2003 and I am now on a downward slope. Any contact ...

What tests should I ask my doctor for?

I want to check if I have CCSVI. What tests do I need to ask my doctor for?

I have had full spine/brain MRIs with the contrast injection. Would these MRIs show vein abnormalities?
