About CCSVI Angioplasty (Procedures)
CCSVI angioplasty involves threading wires through the veins that drain blood from the brain in patients with Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI). When a narrowing is found, a balloon is inserted and inflated. The pressure of the balloon usually opens the narrowed vein.
