ABC News Reports on Clogged Vein Theories

Almost six years after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Sharon Richardson heard that blockages in neck veins draining blood from her brain could have triggered the debilitating disease, which is marked by fatigue, weakness and pain. She quickly took to the web to investigate the theory, proposed by Dr. Paolo Zamboni, a vascular surgeon in Italy, in April 2009.

Two months later, Richardson was one of the first MS patients in the U.S. to undergo testing for the blockage, called chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, or CCSVI. The ABC Story below, like many news stories seems to ask more questions than it answers.

Sharon is now the President of the CCSVI Alliance, a valuable resource for MS patients looking for the answers many news sources seem reluctant to cover. (Thanks to Ken Torbert posting this at CCSVI Locator).

  • Thank you for including the ABC news story on your website. This is the first time a story on CCSVI has been featured by a major news network in the U.S. We hope this is the beginning to more reports and TV coverage.
