Site map of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI) » Forum : Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI)

A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

Good news: Improvements reported finally in an article

I could put it into research, but I think is worthy to give this extra visibility.

Bilateral Surgical Reconstruction for Internal Jugular Veins Disease in Patients With Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and associated Multiple Sclerosis.


Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a vascular condition characterized by morphological alterations involving efferent cerebral vascular paths. CCSVI has been implicated as a contributing factor to multiple sclerosis (MS) but ...

Computational haemodynamics in stenotic IJVs

This was posted today on Facebook:
Computational haemodynamics in stenotic internal jugular veins.

Authors Caiazzo A, et al.
J Math Biol. 2014 Mar 27.

An association of stenotic internal jugular veins (IJVs) to anomalous cerebral venous hemodynamics and Multiple Sclerosis has been recently hypothesized. In this work, we set up a computational framework to assess the relevance of IJV stenoses through numerical ...

Ginger for vasodilation

I was wondering if anyone has tried using ginger for its vasodilation activity? I was taking 1 tsp per day for a couple of weeks, but had to cut back to ½ tsp since I started getting bloody noses. It helps me feel a little more energetic and alert.

IJV Blood Flow Linked to Disability

Hi all

Came across this study of 58 people with MS and 13 healthy controls that found an association between IJV blood flow (wash out rate) and disability levels.

Internal Jugular Vein Blood Flow in Multiple Sclerosis Patients and Matched Controls (full article available) From the abstract:
A significant correlation was found between Internal Jugular Vein wash-out and level of disability (R = −0.402, p<0.05).

From the article itself:
In conclusion, these results suggest that ...

Ccsvi in Europe

Hi everyone I'm looking for some advice in relation to ccsvi. I'm looking to get the Doppler test I live in Ireland yet I cannot find anywhere in Ireland that will test me. Does anyone know if the clinic in Scotland is still carrying out the procedure. I am aware of the treatment in Poland it's just I would like to know if I needed the procedure before I head over to Poland. I'm very ...

I noticed back when I was in college (pre MS days), I would feel an odd sensation whenever I got a haircut. Namely, when they used the clippers to shave the back of my neck, I would feel, well, it's hard to describe, something like a tickle or an itch under the skin. It only happened on the right side. It wasn't real pronounced, but enough that I noticed. I would say it was somewhat ...

CCSVI whilst still CIS?

Hi all,

Many years ago (we are talking 80s and 90s) a treatment here in Spain became popular amongst MS patients. It was known as CTOS and involved the cutting if part of the scalene muscle to ease pressure in the jugular vein.

I have located the doctor and had the basic tests done. Using Doppler he found the right juglar vein obstructed as he followed it up towards the skull. When measuring blood flow ...
