By Mubarak Al-Hajeri KUWAIT, April 5 (KUNA) -- The Ministry of Health will resume surgeries for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in a few days following approval of a relevant protocol for treating this disease.
Health Minister Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer said in a statement to KUNA on Monday the operations would be conducted after a written approval by the patients and informing them on possible side-effects of the operation.
He indicated that this surgery is still classified in the testing stage, has not been accredited by the relevant international health authorities and warrants further researches to ensure that the patients undergoing such surgeries would not suffer from serious side-effects.
Dr. Paolo Zamboni, an Italian vascular surgeon, devised an experimental treatment similar to angioplasty, which involves removing the blockage in the veins that carry blood to and from the brain. Zamboni gained international attention after he published a study in 2009 that suggested the treatment was highly successful in reducing MS symptoms.
However, some experts have expressed concern that the surgery may cause clots in the brain.
In general, people with MS can experience partial or complete loss of any function that is controlled by, or passes through, the brain or spinal cord. (end) mah.rf.rk KUNA 051952 Apr 10NNNN
