I think it confirms the strong association between kinks in the neck veins and MS but the proof that stenting the neck veins improves MS is tenuous unfortunately. By reporting only on the MS subjects that were in a r...

Hey beyond...your buddy surely knows Dr. Dake. He should sit down with him and discuss. The venous stents place in MSers so far have endothelialized really well. My hubby's had the hardest time and needed two balloonings, but it wasn't due to thrombosis. MSers are not looking thrombotic. So that "c...

My good buddy is a radiologist in Montreal. He took me in the morning and did an ultrasound on my neck. Sure enough, there was blockage in one spot of my right jugular vein (I saw it, totally blocked then opened up as he went higher). He also found a kink on my left side. He told me to discuss with ...

MS expert questions CCSVI...

11-25-2009: The Ottawa Citizen reports that MS expert downplays Italian surgeon’s treatment. With all due respect to Dr. Freedman, I think MS patients have absolutely nothing to lose by testing themselves to see if indeed they have partially or completely blocked veins.
