John Corboy, MD, professor of neurology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Denver, reviewed studies performed by Paolo Zamboni, MD, professor of vascular surgery at the University of Ferrara in Italy. Zamboni has been the leading investigator into the possibility that chronic venous insufficiency could be a causative problem in multiple sclerosis.
