Review of Venous Anatomy - a new paper by Dr. Siskin

Review of Venous Anatomy for Venographic Interpretation in Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency.
Werner JD, Siskin GP, Mandato K, Englander M, Herr A.

Department of Radiology, MC-113, Albany Medical Center, 47 New Scotland Ave., Albany, NY 12208.

Abstract

Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) represents a recently described condition that may potentially contribute to the symptoms experienced by patients with multiple sclerosis. The evaluation of a prospective patient for CCSVI often involves an invasive evaluation with venography of the internal jugular and azygos veins. The purpose of this article is to review the normal anatomy of the internal jugular, vertebral, and azygos veins, as an understanding of these veins is necessary for appropriate interpretation of the venograms obtained to evaluate patients for CCSVI.
There are so many CCSVI papers lately, we barely can discuss them all.

I've outlined how Dr. Siskin defined CCSVI. Do we agree with that definition? Is CCSVI a "condition that may potentially contribute to the symptoms experienced by patients with MS"?

Has anyone had a chance to read the full paper?

I haven't read the full paper, no.

Dr Siskin is in a few Clinical trials, simultaneously, so he has to use these words in his abstract statement to be a bit neutral, IMO. Or to CYA sort of statement, as the outcome of his trials are far in the future with his team, and also more recruiting. BTW, he has a new doctor on his team now.

Announcement was:
We are adding another doctor to our list of practicing IR's!
Welcome Dr. Lawrence J. Keating, MD to Community Care and Albany Medical Center in NY!

MarkW - I wish researchers would stick with Prof Zamboni's description of CCSVI syndrome rather than being creative and enabling anti CCSVI neuros to attack us. I don't expect my wish to be granted............

Has anyone had a chance to read the full paper? No yet, I am not sure when I will go to the library to download the paper..................MarkW.
