Our President responds recent comments about the BNAC Study

We thought it would be best to have our President, Eric Feigenbutz respond directly to some of the comments that have been circulating around the web about the recent study out of BNAC, especially from his important perspective and what it means for the patients at Arizona Doppler Specialists.

Having trained at BNAC for the Zamboni Doppler Protocol for CCSVI evaluation I believe it’s appropriate to respond to comments about the recent study published a few days ago out of BNAC and some of the commentary I’ve seen on the Internet.

Proper research is being done at Buffalo by the best in the business. I have met many good people in the medical field and believe me, they want a theory like CCSVI to be identified as a cause of MS and CCSVI treatment to be a cure just as bad as every person diagnosed with MS. The BNAC research doesn’t say that CVSVI has nothing to do with MS, and the paper doesn’t say that CCSVI is the cause of MS either. BNAC researches, like the rest of us, want to get to the answers that everyone wants.

We can’t hang our hat on just one research study. It will take many studies over the next decades to pinpoint the association of CCSVI with MS. What we can do is appreciate the research being done and look ahead.

I plan to stay on top of new techniques and tools to diagnose CVSVI so the patients I see have options, that is all. It is not my decision what patients do with knowledge they gain from me or my reporting but it is my commitment to do the best I can to help them understand more about themselves.

Thanks
Eric

Well said Eric, that’s why you are our leader.

    YOU ARE SO WRIGHT, CCSVI SHOULD BE A HUMAN RIGHT NOT RELATED TO MS. MS MAY BE A REASON TO GET TESTED AND IF YOUR 90% BLOCKED YOU MAY WISH TO HAVE IT FIXED IF YOU ARE 10% BLOCKED YOU MAY OPT OUT OF HAVING THE PROCEDURE. WHY DOES SCIENCE NEED A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE TWO. I HAVE MS AND I WANT TO KNOW IF MY VIENS ARE RESTRICTED. ITS A HUMAN ISSUE NOT JUST AN MS ISSUE!

    HOW CAN YOU SAY ‘At this time, initial research studies are under way at a number of centers to determine whether there is an association between CCSVI and multiple sclerosis (MS), and whether treating CCSVI has an impact on MS. Recent studies suggest that not all patients with MS have CCSVI, and that CCSVI can be seen in healthy individuals and patients with other neurological diseases. Consequently, until this process is better understood, it is not possible to give either definite conclusions regarding the association of CCSVI and MS or recommendations about the necessity for CCSVI treatment.’
