In a non-rand- omized, non-blinded study of 65 patients, he found that those with the relapsing remit- ting form of the disease had fewer relapses after venoplasty. Patients with progressive forms of MS showed little improvement2. On the basis of these findings, Zamboni has called for randomized trials to assess the effects of venoplasty more rigorously. Most neurologists and other physicians who treat patients with MS say that a non- randomized, non-blinded trial is poor evi- dence that venoplasty is beneficial, especially given the variable nature of some forms of the disease. Moreover, several studies3,4 have failed to replicate Zambonis original findings. Nonetheless, in Canada, CCSVI has garnered an extraordinary amount of attention.
