Good afternoon Ana & TiMS,Ana wrote:Unfortunately Rici has new problems. Dr. Simka already did the liberation procedure concerning his left jugular but Rici still had some problems so they checked his veins again and found out that his right jugular is far too wide, about 3 cm!!! It is too wide to place a stent and Rici says that it's rather a water-hose than a vein. You can see it here, also the stent which is in the other side: http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/4845/20091221rici.jpg
It causes a strong reflux and that's why Rici needs to be operated again. Maybe an open operation is necessary.
I wish Rici the best of luck.He is a fantastic gentleman.Myself & Anna were speaking to him on SKYPE a few day's back & he showed us his right Jugular vein (e-mail)Head up Rici
