Chronic Cerebral Spinal Venous Insufficiency Treatment...
Previous
Overview
Chronic cerebral spinal venous insufficiency, more commonly known as CCSVI, is defined as the abnormal drainage of blood from the brain or spinal cord. This abnormal blood drainage often contributes to damage within the nervous system of those already diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis, more commonly known as MS, is a disabling and chronic disease that literally attacks a body's central nervous system. Individuals diagnosed with MS often experience flare-ups or more chronic symptoms such as numbness in the limbs, loss of vision, and for some, paralysis.

Multiple sclerosis occurs in stages, and one person may stay in one stage for years while another steadily progresses through the stages in a short period, which range from mild to moderate to severe. The four stages of multiple sclerosis are defined as:
  • Relapsing - Remitting
  • Primary - Progressive
  • Secondary - Progressive
  • Progressive - Relapsing
To Date, It Has Been Believed The Multiple Sclerosis Is Classified As An Autoimmune Condition In Which The Immune System Attacks Myelin, Or The Protective Coating Of Nerves And Nerve Cells. Dr. Paolo Zamboni Of Italy Has Proposed A New Theory That MS May Be Caused By Inadequate Drainage Of Blood From The Brain Due To Malformed Or Blocked Veins. He First Dubbed The Condition Chronic Cerebral Spinal Venous Insufficiency.

Research And Study Of Possible CCSVI In Relation To Multiple Sclerosis Are Still In Their Infancy, And Long-Term Studies Must Be Conducted To Determine The Overall Efficacy, Safety And Benefits Provided By CCSVI Procedures And Treatments.
 
Who Benefits From CCSVI Treatments?
Medical experts and researchers believe that chronic cerebral spinal venous insufficiency contributes to many of the symptoms of MS. Groundbreaking treatments and surgical procedures to treat CCSVI may help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, and offer individuals diagnosed with MS greater mobility, independence, and relief from pain.
 
CCSVI Treatment Approach
At Its Most Basic, A Technique Known As Endovascular Surgery May Help Treat CCSVI. In This Procedure, A Catheter Fitted With A Tiny Balloon Inside Is Inserted Into A Blocked Vein. Much Like A Stent Used In Cardiovascular Situations, The Balloon Is Then Enlarged At The Blockage Or Narrowed Site In The Vein And Then Inflated, Which Opens Blocked Veins. This Results In Improved Blood Flow Out Of The Brain And Spinal Cord.

The Procedure, The Basic Form Of Balloon Angioplasty, Can Be Utilized To Open Multiple Vein Blockages In Patients. Blockage Typically Occurs Above And Below The Heart, In Veins Accessing The Brain, As Well As The Spinal Cord And Lower Extremities.
The Treatment Of Choice For CCSVI Is Called A Liberation Procedure. Still Relatively New, The Procedure Is Under Study And Undergoing Clinical Trials To Better Determine Risks And Benefits
 
How Much Does CCSVI Treatment Cost?
Because the procedure is so new, the cost of CCSVI treatment around the world differs. In most cases, costs may range up to 70000-80000 rs depending on geographic location, number of blockages to be treated, and the severity of those blockages.
