Because it is the same blood going in as coming out, except for oxygen and sugar, etc. the problem is not acute but chronic. Over time it can be just as deadly.We know this. When blood flow INTO the brain is MOMENTARILY stopped , the result is ... you pass out ...... OR ......a possible stroke ,and if longer ...... death. The time frame is smaller than you think ..... just ask your doctor ...... or a Coroner .
CCSVI on the other hand , deals with bloodflow OUT of the brain.

At this time there is insufficient evidence available in the peer-reviewed published literature to support the use of venous angioplasty (with or without stent placement) for the treatment MS. The relationship between CCSVI and MS is not certain, the impact of treating CCSVI on outcomes of MS is not known and the safety and efficacy of this treatment have not been proven. Limitations of recent published studies include small sample size and lack of randomization. Current findings are preliminary and there are studies which demonstrate conflicting results. Results from large randomized controlled clinical trials are needed to further assess this proposed treatment modality.
