Re: DrSclafani answers some questions

Dear Doctor, two questions:
1. How often have you seen the external jugular vein be used as a collateral of the internal?
2. Provided that the above is true, wouldn't be useful to check and restore a probable valve problem in the external?

Re: DrSclafani answers some questions

How different is the anticoagulation regime after that kind of stenting? And something else. A patient that has already undergone 2 procedures the last three months (June and September) with no improvement but with serious deterioration of both CCSVI and MS symptoms, how long should wait before a ne...

Re: DrSclafani answers some questions

Dear Doctor, welcome back.
As i read here, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12223389, the vertebral veins are also equipped with a pair of valves. Have you encountered any problems with these? Do you think a possible valve issue there could affect CCSVI severity?

So discussion number one. Should I have stented this vein? Since there is no obvious malformation or tissue change, it could be the result of the acquired posture after all these years of disease burden. Seen that way, it may not have great contribution to the overall situation and could be reduced...

Dear Doctor, is there a way to cut out inert valve leaflets without getting involved in open surgery? What are the risks of such an intervention? Wouldn't this be an acceptable measure to deal with continuously restenosing veins, provided that all annulus issues have been resolved successfully?

What was the condition of your (right and left) valves' leaflets? Where they stuck to the lumen walls or where they swinging normally?

Dear Cece, why do you think the last balloon in the LIJV still had some waist in the second procedure, while there was none left in the first procedure? Was it because of lower pressure used? Did you discuss that with Dr Sclafani?

Hi, Doctor and all. In the imaginary case of an occluded jugular with a definite stenosis near the skull, would resolving that stenosis be in any way beneficial for the rest of the vein? Could the angioplasty be performed though the other jugular and dural sinuses? Doctor, have you done, or are you ...

Re: AXYGOS findings

ok class.... Today we review an azygos vein. This vein, which drains the spinal cord via intercostal veins and lumbar veins, enters the superior vena cava at the top, the renal vein in the middle and the ascending lumbar veins at the bottom. The findings of malformations are 1. valvular problems of...

A question about valves again: In what way is a valvular ring (anywhere in the body) distensible? Do leaflets have the necessary excess length so as to remain functional within an increased truncular diameter? Or is an insufficiency of a certain degree acceptable, provided that it doesn't last long?...

tell me, was ultrasound done before each angioplasty The first ultrasound revealed abnormal flow in both jugulars, the following angiogram only an azygos occlusion; fixed. The second ultrasound found a stenosis on the left. Confirmed by the angiogram; fixed. Then the right, the same way. The fourth...

A very enlightening post it was about treating hypoplasia. And now a riddle: 25 year old MS patient has effectively had her azygos, right and left jugular veins treated in three successive angioplasties. Her symptoms deteriorate. A fourth angiogram shows perfect flow to all three veins. Cortisone th...

That was a real mind-appetizer. Consequently, makes the next question inevitable: Is there a risk of such vertebral vein damage after ballooning the jugulars in their lowest part? It is there where the VVs end, isn't it?
