"Lesion etiology is non-specific (congenital/hereditary, osseous impingement, arterial compression, post-inflammatory, arachnoid granulation, etc., alone or in combination)"
This is in reference to the lesions or occlusions in the veins. It sounds like congenital is only one possible source of an occlusion/lesion. Osseous impingement sounds like build-up within the vein. Arterial compression has the carotid artery as the villain. Post-inflammatory...although I'm not familiar with what causes veins to be inflamed. Arachnoid granulation...I do not know what this means.
CCSVI has been classified as a congenital venous malformation, but there would seem to be instances where that is true and other instances where it is acquired.

Would all of these necessarily show up as reflux on an ultrasound, or would some only be detectable by MRV or venogram?
