sorry for the delay in response...as someone else noted this assessment is research protocol (not sure if irb established...)
Great article by Zamboni...."Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency in patients with multiple sclerosis" J Neurol Nerosurg Psychiatry 2009;80:392-399. Dr. Zamboni is from Bologna Italy, I think he has a great deal of passion regarding this topic, evidently another physician from Buffalo, NY (this side of the pond) is a big fan as well... the article references a trial in Italy...
Hey all, one of our MDs is asking us to do a CCSVI exam and I am having trouble finding a protocol or criteria for the exam. Also, I am unsure how to bill for it. I am pretty sure I cannot just do an upper extremity venous and bill accordingly. Can I even bill for this exam at all?
