At Angeles hospital we use a tracking system to record our patients’ results and find out how having CCSVI treatment improves their multiple sclerosis symptoms.
Angeles hospital follows all CCSVI patients for two years post-venoplasty intervention according to the following schedule:
Your Case Manager will help you find a diagnostic imaging facility near your home for your follow-up Doppler sonogram and MRV, as well as manage all records being transferred to the Angeles hospital medical team for consultation.
Patients have been completing an online survey updating their post-intervention changes on more than 25 functional measures including:
Muscle tone and involuntary movement
Coordination, balance, dizziness and vertigo
Vision and Speech
Memory, recall and comprehension
Bowel urgency and incontinence
Numbness, pain, tingling and seizures
Respiratory symptoms and Swallowing
Sensations of heat and cold
At Angeles hospital patients work with board certified physicians in the subspecialties of neuro-intervention, Dr. Daniel Morales, and interventional cardiology with Stanford-trained cardiologist Dr. Jorge Luna. As it cannot be ignored that CCSVI is a recently recognized condition, our medical team believes that by combining these two subspecialties, there is an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the CCSVI condition and the potential different intervention options for treatment.
Our medical team has carried out nearly 100 CCSVI treatments for MS, and each surgeon has performed thousands of procedures within their specialty.
