CCSVI Surgery for Multiple Sclerosis in India在印度的Medical Tourism Corporation提供了全面，完善，可以負擔(USD6500)的手術套餐供給需要的MS病患。
Dr Zamboni’s Liberation Procedure for treatment of multiple sclerosis is a new but increasingly popular approach. Medical Tourism Corporation’s India Liberation surgery package is comprehensive, affordable, and makes no compromises.
(I-Newswire) May 12, 2010 - Liberation procedure for Multiple sclerosis in India is bringing new hope to patients suffering from a disease that was previously thought incurable. It is being facilitated by Medical Tourism Corporation, a popular provider of medical tourism services from Texas, US.
Also known as Zamboni Procedure India (http://www.medicaltourismco.com/neurosurgery/venous-angioplasty-stenting-abroad.php), surgery for multiple sclerosis is a revolutionary new approach to treating the disease. Dr Paolo Zamboni from Italy is credited with coming up with the idea that multiple sclerosis was probably a dysfunction of drainage of the veins, a condition which he called Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI). Hence, he argued that endovascular surgery would restore flow in these vessels and lessen MS symptoms. As his concept was to free up the flow of blood in cervical and thoracic veins, the procedure came to be popularly known as Liberation procedure.
Initial trial results have been very satisfactory and Dr Zamboni’s theory is now being actively studied by Canadian and US researchers. CCSVI procedure in India is being offered by experienced and highly qualified neuroradiologists (endovascular neurosurgeons) who are considered among the best in the country.
Medical Tourism Corporation provides all information related to multiple sclerosis surgery abroad and the choices available to you. Its India package for multiple sclerosis is extremely affordable and covers 5 days stay in a hospital private room where a companion can stay with the patient, Venous Angioplasty (Liberation Procedure), nursing care, procedure fee, tests like a post op jugular Doppler and 2 neurology consults, patient's food and airport pick up and drop.
Apart from the hospital stay, the patient has to stay in a nearby hotel for three more days for post-operative checks. The hotel stay is at the cost of the patient.
The hospitals in India where the surgery is offered have the latest cutting-edge equipment like flat panel Biplane DSA (digital subtraction laboratory) that provides ultrahigh resolution (2048 matrix) of cranial (brain) and spinal blood vessels. This unit is one of the most advanced units installed in this part of the world.
Its features include biplane technology, that is, its two C arms help in visualization in two planes simultaneously; flat-panel technology which achieves high-resolution images with much less radiation exposure; 3D technology, which helps in precise assessment of the vascular anatomy and pathology; and advanced DynaCT, which has an angiographic suite built in a CT scan-like facility for early detection of any complication during the procedure.
To qualify for the surgery, the patient is evaluated first by using Doppler Ultrasound and MR Venogram for Cranial Venous putflow pattern. If there are indications of abnormality then further transfemoral venographic study is also required. Treatment is then done by angioplasty (opening of narrowed or blocked veins) of the stenosed veins and placing of stents if required.
Multiple sclerosis surgery in India is an increasingly attractive option for patients in an otherwise bleak scenario. The surgery may not make people in wheelchairs get up and walk, but it has been known to stop further degeneration or disability.
Venous Angioplasty Stenting for Multiple Sclerosis (Liberation Procedure)
Venous angioplasty stenting for multiple sclerosis (Liberation Procedure) is the most advanced procedure for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). CCSVI or Chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency syndrome is considered to be primary cause of multiple sclerosis disease. CCSVI syndrome is caused due to insufficient blood flow between central nervous system and heart through cervical and thoracic veins.
Diagnosis and treatment:
Patient is evaluated first using Doppler Ultrasound and MR Venogram for Cranial Venous putflow pattern. If there are indications of abnormality then further transfemoral venographic study is also required. Treatment is then done by angioplasty (opening of narrowed or blocked veins) of the stenosed veins and placing of stents if required.
Venous angioplasty stenting for multiple sclerosis Costs and Packages:
The cost of the Liberation procedure is 6500 USD (with one stent) and patient will require a hospital stay for 5 days. Post discharge patient will require 3 days hotel stay before flying back home.
The package cost includes 5 days stay in a hospital private room where a companion can stay with the patient, Venous Angioplasty (Liberation Procedure), nursing care, procedure fee, tests like post operation jugular Doppler, 2 neurology consults, patient's food, airport pick up and drop etc.
