Actually, the brochure in the link only mentions a presentation on CVI - Chronic Venous Insufficiency in the "limbs," and says nothing about the Cerebrospinal version. Wonder if CCSVI actually came up?
10:05 am SCIENTIFIC SESSION VII

Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Moderators: William A. Marston, MD &
Nicos Labropoulos, MD

Educational Objectives: After completion of this
session the participant will be able to (1)
identify and treat atypical causes of limb
swelling, (2) understand the effect of stretch on
TGF-b expression by dermal fibroblasts, (3)
determine changes in the vein wall induced by
venous thrombosis and (4) understand the key
components of measurement of quality of life
in venous disease.
Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)

Thanks, guys. I THOUGHT I had already read about it on the forum, but couldn't find your thread again, Nunzio. CCSVI was presented at 8:30 am on the 12th. :)

So...I suggest going to the other thread instead of this one :) :
