Paper: Angioplasty of internal jugular and azygous vein

Percutaneous angioplasty of internal jugular and azygous veins in patients with chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency and multiple sclerosis: preliminary results for a randomized controlled trial



Study’s aim is to assess the efficacy of PTA on CCSVI and MS patients’ functional disability. Endovascular treatment of the IJV is proven to be a safe procedure (major complication <0,05%) with no significant improvement of IJV flow haemodynamic parameters and clinical improvement in patients with CCSVI and MS.

The study undoubtedly provided standardization of diagnostic protocols (ECDs) and angiographic (PTA), useful in possible future multicentric, blinded, randomized clinical trials.
