I have had repeated procedures (x4) in the space of 14 months with 'good' results apart from my final one which was deemed failed - and boy i knew it before he told me.
Anyhoo, I decided to get myself tested for pathogens and low & behold - positive for a vein loving bacteria (chlamydophila pneumoniae). I started treating this WITH all returned MS symptoms in November, it is now April and I do not have a CCSVI symptom in sight and my IJV volume flow rate has increased to 'normal' level. My jugulars have NEVER been 'normal' even post surgery with a 14mm balloon.
I just think CCSVI is likened to varicose veins (vv). If the incompetence source is the ovarian vein and you treat the legs only, they willl return in a matter of months (vv), same with CCSVI - some cases may be pathogen induced and that source must be treated too for successful plasties.
So the location of the venulitis is suspected to be in the usual CCSVI veins: azygous and internal jugular, as well as the vertebral veins.This review of the venous pathology associated with MS describes a hypothesis that the pathogenesis of the venous disease could be initiated by a respiratory infective agent such as Chlamydophila pneumonia, which causes a specific chronic persistent venulitis affecting the cerebrospinal venous system. Secondary spread of the agent would initially be via the lymphatic system to specifically involve the azygos, internal jugular and vertebral veins.
