Link to Blogtalk Radio Show on CCSVI

This past Monday night, I appeared on the Blogtalk Radio Internet program "CCSVI-Been There, Done That". The show featured a range of guests relating their different experiences with the CCSVI treatment procedure. The patients profiled represent a cross-section of the possible outcomes of CCSVI venoplasty, including some who saw tremendous benefit from the procedure, some who saw benefit but then restenosed, and others who saw no benefit at all. It avoids the controversy surrounding the CCSVI hypothesis itself, and puts a very human face on MS and the promise of CCSVI.

Hosted by the gracious and ever genial Amy Gurowitz, the program provides valuable patient perspectives from some who have undergone the CCSVI treatment procedure. I might be a little bit biased, as I was one of the guests, but I honestly think the program is an important listen for anyone considering CCSVI treatment. Please click the play arrow on the handy dandy interface below to listen to the show…

Edited to add: I've been getting word that some people are having trouble with the Blogtalk Radio interface, above. It works fine on my browser, but sometimes these things can be finicky. Be advised that the first minute and thirty seconds or so of the program are a commercial and then some introductory music. To play the program, you have to click on the white arrow symbol on the left side of the interface.

If the interface continues to malfunction, you can access the program directly from the Blogtalk Radio website (click here). Once on the website, scroll down until you get to the "CCSVI-Been There, Done That" section, at the bottom of which you'll find clickable buttons to play the program, along with some other options.

Sorry for the inconvenience, hopefully everyone who wants to listen to the program will be able to by either using the above gizmo, or going directly to the Blogtalk Radio website. Thanks.


  1. Sorry to say but the Play button is not working. It shows "Playlist Error" for me.

  2. Me too! Please fix the handy dandy interface as i would love to hear this. thanks!

  3. I don't even see a play button :( Looking forward to hearing it. Thanks!

  4. I have the play button but all I get is music.

  5. Here is the link to the page:

    The show is called CCSVI: Been there done that. It's the second show in the listing on the right.(The more recent show in on this station is in the first slot.)

    Thanks for your interest~

  6. Sorry for all of the confusion, folks. The interface works fine on my browser, but apparently not on some others. I've added instructions to the post on how to access the program directly from the BlogTalk Radio website.

    My apologies for the inconvenience.

  7. ok, i hate that i had to use the microsoft ie, but it was interesting to listen to all of you.
    it was pretty anecdotal, but i guess it is the story of all our ms cases.
