By now many of you will have read this lengthy article in the New York Times Magazine, entitled A Controversial 'Cure' for M.S.
I read it. Although it contains some factual errors about MS, it does offer a pretty comprehensive overview of CCSVI (chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency), including the controversies and rifts that the CCSVI theory and its treatment have caused in the communities of MS patients, researchers and neurologists.
I happen to know that this article was over a year in the making. The author was conducting interviews and attending sessions at the ECTRIMS conference in October 2011.
