    It disgusts me that you say "Serious complications have been reported, and neither national interventional radiology nor cardiology groups support it"--when the "complications" are mainly due to pharmaceuticals but you don't mention anything about the horrible side-effects including serious brain infections and several deaths caused by the approved pharmaceutical treatments.
    Has anybody there read the position of the Society of Interventional Radiologists?
    "SIR recognizes the challenge and the potential opportunity presented
    by promising early studies of an interventional approach to the treatment of MS. SIR is pleased that public advocacy groups have pushed the medical community forward to meet this challenge and is committed to assuming a national leadership role in launching the needed efforts."
