SIR - With reference to MS patient's plea for treatment: I attended a symposium on treatments for cerebrospinal venous insufficiency held Monday at the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Centre in Brooklyn, New York.
Preliminary results from ongoing treatment trials in Bulgaria and Kuwait, which were presented by the interventional radiologists in those trials, confirm Zamboni's findings as to safety and benefit.
The treatment is especially helpful for relieving acute disease symptoms, such as fatigue, blurred vision, sleeplessness, heat intolerance, bladder control - and only time will tell if people treated for their vascular condition will ultimately find relieve from the more chronic symptoms.
There is no rational basis on which one can deny the links between MS and venous disorders of the brain and spine. Any neurologists who think otherwise needs to do a good literature search and refresh their training with an open mind.
