What happened to the Italian "liberatos"? READ THIS!
I'm sure I am not alone in wondering why we haven't been hearing more from the early patients that Dr. Zamboni "liberated" in Italy. I assumed that it may have had something to do with the likelihood that there are fewer Italians who are able to write in English. Finally, today, in response to the nervousness on the part of someone who is scheduled to be liberated, someone posted a number of translated testimonials from Italian "liberatos", including heart-wrenching stories from some who have re-stenosed and are now having to wait to be retreated because parts of the Italian medical community have stopped liberation treatments pending an ethics committee review.
