The Lure of Liberation: CCSVI

detail of monoprint

My friend Marc, over at his fab blog called WHEELCHAIR KAMIKAZE

Keeps his diligent finger on the pulse of the medical community and all it’s machinations regarding the MS world.

He is my go-to guy when it comes to filtering through the whole medical system.

Today, I am essentially piggybacking on his post

Which includes two short videos in lay person’s terms that I think are worth watching about CCSVI – The Liberation Procedure.

I am so grateful to Marc for culling through the morass of information out there and helping to make it palatable for me/us.

Here’s a synopsis of the filmed CCSVI event:

On January 10, 2011 the CCSVI Alliance sponsored a presentation by Dr. Michael Dake of Stanford University entitled “CCSVI and the MS connection”. The event was held at Brandeis University, in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Dr. Dake was the first Interventional Radiologist in the United States to treat MS patients for CCSVI. On January 10, he presented a broad overview of the evidence supporting a connection between the vascular abnormalities collectively known as CCSVI and Multiple Sclerosis. His presentation was followed by an informative question-and-answer session with the audience.

    I’ve received CCSVI treatment. I got no results. We need to be carefull now with wanting quick fixes. I went to Albany and they were great but its still relatively early when it comes to this type of treatment. There’s a CCSVI wave now what with winter specials,,, Gosh any body and there brother is starting to provide this new treatment because there’s money in it and MS folks are scared. I saw recently where you can receive $500 for a referal. What next?
