my group of neuroradiologists at the hospital will soon begin a retrospective analysis of the deep cerebral veins on cta performed for stroke in non MS stroke patients. more than jugular vein anatomay, dural sinus anatomy is quite variable.

If a person has one jugular obstruction and one dural sinus obstruction, would that qualify as the two obstuctions necessary for CCSVI?
