And the answer is that this is new and only 3 people are doing any surgery for this at all. All 3 use stents, but to different degrees. Dake uses them almost exclusively, Zambono very rarely, and SImka has only done 6 people so far and AFAIK has used a few stents.
Simka told me once he plans to use any of a number of techniues depending on what an individual patient needs.
But remember that this is unproven and uncharted waters. There are no "right" answers at this time, just people TRYING.
I'm not offering medical advice, I am just a patient too! Talk to your doctor about what is best for you...
