CCSVI is a serious vascular condition, characterized by restriction of the blood flow from the brain resulting from severely malformed or blocked. Jugular veins and / or Azygos veins. Studies have shown that more than 50% of persons with Multiple Sclerosis have this vascular condition
-several scientific research studies have been published since the ground breaking work of Dr. Paulo Zamboni. (do an internet search and read the recent research for yourself)
-the effects of CCSVI include damage to the brain from inadequate oxygen perfusion to the tissues of the brain, and other documented effects of compromised circulation
-CCSVI is diagnosed by means of Doppler ultrasound, MRV, and venogram. There is nothing experimental about these diagnostic procedures.
-the most common treatment for CCSVI is balloon venoplasty, which is a simple out-patient procedure involving minimal and well documented risk.
-many Canadians are traveling to other countries to receive testing and treatment for this vascular condition. Many Canadians with MS do not have funds to seek screening and treatment in other countries.
-The government of Kuwait has undertaken to screen and treat all Kuwaiti citizens living with MS/CCSVI
-join us in asking the MS Society of Canada to call for immediate screening and treatment for all Canadians at risk for this serious vascular condition.
