Confirmation of CCSVI

From http://www.facebook.com/notes/ccsvi-in-multiple-sclerosis/news-from-dr-zamboni-ccsvi-lesions-classified-as-congenital/272090457210
A Consensus Conference on Venous Malformations - headed by Prof. Byung B Lee from Georgetown - and experts from 47 countries- studied the evidence and unanimously voted in favour of officially including the stenosing lesions found in CCSVI in the new Consensus document and Guidelines.
Although I wasn't able to access the source articles referred to in the Facebook page, it would appear that this should be taken as more expert opinion that there is significant evidence of causal links between CCSVI and MS.  The Facebook story says:
This paper can be brought/linked to interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons. CCSVI lesions are classified as a truncular venous malformations - which means that vascular doctors have now classified this disease, CCSVI, as congenital- and preceding MS lesions.

Vascular doctors have agreed. CCSVI comes first.

 However, since I haven't read the articles I don't know if they are quite as conclusive as that.
