New York Times Article: CCSVI Controversy

Here's a fairly long NY Times article on CCSVI: A Controversial ‘Cure’ for M.S.  Since there really isn't anyone calling it a "cure" for MS, I wonder why they used that title?


  1. I really hate it when I see "Cure" and "MS" in same sentence.

  2. I can't wait to see "Cure" and "MS" in the same sentence. CCSVI treatment is not a cure - but it has made a world of difference in our lives since my wife had the treatment two years ago. We saw immediate and dramatic improvements in her MS symptoms. Her symptoms all but disappeared overnight and stayed in abeyance for a year. Admittedly, some of her symptoms began to reappear a year later - but to a lesser degree. We suspect restenosis and are considering having the treatment done again. It may not be a cure, but we are grateful for the past two years of better quality of life.

  3. Those are my feelings about my treatment(s): no cure, but an incredibly valuable improvement in the quality of my life.
