the ICC Casalpalocco is an high level cardiosurgery clinic and is fully specialized in CCSVI diagnosis and treatment.
I was treated by the Brain Flow Team and I' m very well and satisfied.
good luck to everybody
i was treated by the brain flow team but must admit that it was disappointing to only be informed once I was in Italy that they NEVER use stents. That could and should have been discussed before hand when emails where exchanged, its an unfair way of backing the clients/patients into a corner as they are hardly going to turn back once they've traveled to Italy. They also claimed that there are no stents for veins approved by the EU in Europe, only for arteries. I have since learnt that that is also false information as there are stents available for veins (apparently only one according to vascular surgeons), probably another reason you are told verbally about this rather than in writting.
I personally am convinced that some veins will never remain open by themselves. I wonder how many people visit the brain flow team and then decide to visit Poland and get stents placed.

Of those centres in Europe, can someone confirm which centre has the most experience? Belgium? Poland?
I found Erkki Kuure on Youtube. Her wife treated in AMEDS Poland.
the use of a stent can put the patient at risk of total occlusion. Angioplasty is safer and repeatable. Once the stent is occluded , nothing you can do! As far as I know the brain flow team has implanted some stents in the azygos vein because they claim that in that vein occlusion is very rare. I had full discussion about stents with the Team before undergoing PTA. You should have asked them about stents rather than complaining.... However in Italy several people have been treated by the Team and the results are extremely good. They are very professional and prepared..do not forget that Dr Lupattelli has already treated 2500 patients with CCSVI. Many patients go to the Team after having had their procedure in other countries such as Poland ecc to get better.
Yes I'm on the payroll!!!! Because I trust more an experienced Team than original opinions about stents like yours.
