What is Repeat of CCSVI?

Category: Procedures


Generic name: CCSVI Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency Therapy

Chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a syndrome in which the flow of blood in the cervical and thoracic veins, from the central nervous system (CNS) to the heart, is compromised and less efficient. It is proposed that insufficient venous blood flow, in turn, promotes development of brain dysfunction, especially multiple sclerosis.
