CCSVI webcast organized by MS Society Canada taking place on Wednesday Apr 14, 2010

Submitted by Jason Ramsey on Thu, 04/08/2010 - 20:19

For answering the endless queries of people suffering from multiple sclerosis, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada organized information session on Wednesday in Toronto. This session basically aimed at enlighteningpeople about the condition dubbed chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency or CCSVI.

The webcast session was filled with excitement and curiosity from the officials and the patients as well. During the session, most of the people after knowing about CCSVI in actual and online wanted a deeper insight with readily available treatment for the same.

But later it was known that procedure promoted for treating CCSVI i. e., "blockages of veins in the neck that drain oxygen-depleted blood from the brain", has not yet been appropriately recommended for patients as the experts advised people to be calm and wait until full approval is passed for the treatment.

This treatment was developed by Dr. Paolo Zamboni, who thinks that the condition is vascular and associated with neck vein blockages.

After its disclosure, about 20 Canadians opted for the testing and travelled all the way to Europe spending thousands of dollars.

The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is warning people that it is not yet know whether the opening of two veins help or not. The organization is also recommending that the testing will only be advisable when the risks associated with it and the time period for which the effectiveness will last and many other doubts will be cleared out.
