“Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency,”
CCSVI is a condition where people have obstructed blood flow in the veins that drain the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). Research indicates that CCSVI is significantly correlated with multiple sclerosis.
As a result of these venous abnormalities, the blood flow rate through the central nervous system back toward the heart may become slowed, and blood may reflux back toward the brain and spine.People with Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) have one or more of the following blockages of the veins that drain blood from the central nervous system:
- Stenosis is an abnormal narrowing of the veins that restricts blood flow. Types of stenoses include the collapse of the vein, twisting of the vein, ring-like narrowings in the vein, and other similar obstructions
- An abnormal valve, septum, flap, or membrane that blocks or inhibits blood flow through the veins
- Atresia, hypoplasia, or agenesis are severe venous problems, including veins that are partially closed, underdeveloped, minimally formed, or almost entirely missing
