This is documentary will be on Canada's CTV channel and available for viewing afterward free of charge worldwide on their website. Here's a preview of tonight's documentary regarding Dr. Zamboni and his discoveries linking CCSVI to MS http://watch.ctv.ca/news/top-picks/w5-p ... clip237767

Thanks for the link. A friend of mine had alerted me to this broadcast. I think that it is excellent - a very balanced, professional report. I could feel my anger rising at the complacency of the majority of neurologists who are ignorant of this development and appear to be complacent of these events. After all - they don't have to suffer the illess or the life changing problems that go with the condition. I celebrated the video by opening a good bottle of wine!

Of course you are right. A momentary loss. The world already looks better after a thimble of wine. I can no longer drink much these days! :D

It should help also those with PPMS, and indeed there's some evidence from a small number Zamboni has treated. Recovery takes longer, they say 18 months on average before first signs are seen. The main difference between PPMS and RR/SPMS is that the azygos vein, draining the spine, is more dysfunctional in PPMS. This also explains why PPMSers progress faster on average than others, because the azygos vein matters 24 hours, while the jugular veins matter most while one is laying flat (the "supine" position, i.e. around 8 hours/day for most people), and not much during the day. We have a few PPMSers on here. Look in the "CCSVI TRACKING" thread that's permanently in the top of the list of threads.

Radeck,

What's not clear to me in your post:

.... Recovery takes longer, they say 18 months on average before first signs are seen. The main difference between PPMS and RR/SPMS is that the azygos vein, draining the spine, is more dysfunctional in PPMS. This also explains why PPMSers progress faster on average than others,....

Longer <> faster???

Or do you mean progress in the sense of MS-symptoms???

Regards,

Rob

Longer faster

Post by Dovechick » 9 years ago

People with PPMS progress faster with the disease. It takes longer for them to recover after the procedure because of the site of the stenosis in the azygos vein.

Yes Rob, by faster progression I mean that they get more disability faster. Recovery time in general seems to be longer.

In the CTV interviews of Dr. Zamboni he started talking about PPMS, then said "not all PPMS stenosis can be repaired" or something like that, and then he never finished that thought. Anyone know what he meant by that?

This is so exciting! I am late to this game, and WOW! How can I watch the documentary on-line? and where is Dr Dake in Stanford related to this? I am in California and am raising my hand- test me test me!
So many questions - I know, and am hopeful a helpful reader will point me in the right direction
THANK YOU AGAIN over and over

Mikkysgal... Read through the thread "Canadian Documentary". It should be on the first page of this board. There are links there to the documentary. You can click on these links and go straight to the CTV M5 page to the documentary "The Liberation Procedure". Welcome !!!!
