However, this is not without risk, as IJV occlusion has been reported to engender
intracranial hypertension, cerebral venous ischemia, superior vena cava syndrome and even pulmonary embolism
secondary to dislodgment of clot

Question- would one not expect to see MS develop in these cases if ccsvi is the cause of MS?
dreddk wrote:It appears the procedure is not uncommon (treatment for tinitus) and also in situations of cancer multiple veins are ligated (see below)
Perhaps this is one reason that the findings of narrowings are eliciting a 'so what' from those familiar with the pathology of ijvs. Narrowing or ligating jugular veins is performed surgically without any apparent issue. This suggests to me that ccsvi is a symptom with associated fatigue rather than a cause of ms
Such as? "MS" slash CCSVI symptoms, perhaps?It is believed that the sacrifice of both jugular veins leads to increased intracranial pressure with subsequent neurological sequela (6).
