Double Standards for Access to Care?
As a direct follow-up on my previous posting, here's the story of a Canadian cardiologist who sees our medical system's reticence to do something about CCSVI as hypocritical: http://www.ccsvi.mx/double-standard-ccsvi. If neurologists are recommending that patent foramen ovale (PFO) be treated despite the lack of clinical trials because it just makes common sense that potential benefits outweigh potential risks, why in the world wouldn't that be true for CCSVI treatment? Thanks to Shelley for digging this up, along with others she found while I was on vacation.
