Belfast

Powereds,
Sorry to disappoint you but the doctor in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast do not offer treatment for CCSVI: they wait for more evidence to be produced.

getting things moving

Sometimes I doubt we are living in a civilized society, in which the first human right should be the right to health. Zamboni has proven beyond any doubt that there is a strong correlation between MS and defective venous drainage from the brain due to obtructions at the level of the jugular and/or a...

press release

The press release of the Regione Emilia concerns an interrogation, presented by a politician of AN-PDL (centre-right), regarding the fact that it seems that the activity of Zamboni has been stopped without declared reasons.

stoppage in Stanford

I spoke to Zamboni who is not aware of any stoppage in Stanford. I believe that the high rate of serious complications following stenting of the jugular veins must have triggered an alarm bell, either inside or outside the institution. With any treatment, surgical or not, the balance between risk an...

Zamboni's paper

I have a copy of the paper: it is new and exciting! First of all it says that the complications of the liberation procedure (no stents) were very few and mild, demonstrating that it is a safe procedure. Secondly it establishes a very strong link between MS and CCSVI. Thirdly it shows statistically s...

hope

thornyrose76, Before Zamboni's discovery there was no hope for us: interferon, prednisolone, stem cells and many other drugs failed to deliver a real improvement in MS. Now CCSVI theory has finally given us a real possibility of defeating this horrible condition and we should keep our hopes sky-high...

stents migration

radeck, I am very sorry to hear of your misadventure, which is to be considered a possible complication of the procedure of placing stents in the jugular veins. The concerns that Zamboni expressed in this matter are known and I do not think that the level at which the stents are placed (near the sku...

durability of stents

It is difficult to extrapolate the knowledge accumulated so far of the behaviour of arterial stents to the fate of stents in the jugular veins. As it has rightly been said in this topic the mechanism of the obstruction is completely different in the two compartments: accumulation of cholesterol in t...

treatment abroad

To be absolutely honest in occasions like this I feel deeply ashamed of belonging to the medical profession. I can understand the resistance to change, I can understand that the link of cause and effect between CCSVI and MS has not been proven so far, I can understand the strength of the pharmaceuti...

Zamboni's paper

cheerleader,
I have sent the details of the journal to the vascular surgeon and the radiologist who gave me the procedure.
I hope it will have some effect.

placebo effect

I agree that many treatments may have a powerful placebo effect and that our psychological status may have a strong influence on the body's ability to heal. I believe that all MS patients put all their faith and hopes in the drugs they have been administered for years: only when improvements in thei...

healing

Hi Tim78! Delighted to hear of your appointment for the stents! Patent jugular veins are a sine-qua-non for the healing process to kick in. I had the liberation procedure twice in the last three years (balloon dilatation, no stents) with remarkable improvements. I cannot give medical advice because ...

coumadin

bluesky63, I understand your concern and you may be interested in having some information about the drug. Coumadin is not a blood thinner; it acts on the cascade reaction that makes the blood clot in the event of exposure to the external environment (like it happens with a wound). It is used in many...

turbulence

Jamie, I am sorry I have to say that you talk nonsense regarding the effects of turbulence. Laminar flow in a fluid (every layer going in straight lines) offers the least resistance and the lower pressure, while turbulent flow increases resistance to the flow and the pressure inside the pipe (or ves...
