This Wednesday, March 10, I'm scheduled to undergo a diagnostic venogram, looking for stenosis (narrowing) and/or other abnormalities in my azygos and jugular veins. If any such anomalies are found, they will be addressed via a balloon procedure. The venogram itself involves feeding a catheter from a vein in my upper thigh, through my vascular system, to the veins associated with the central nervous system. In the parlance of CCSVI, this is known as the "Liberation Procedure". (For info on CCSVI, click here)The Wheelchair Kamikaze, Wheelchair Kamikaze, Mar 2010
