Venous Obstruction & Cerebral Blood Flow

October 16,2014

Research article indicating: The worse the venous obstruction, the less cerebral blood flow.  Severity of CCSVI was directly related to severity of hypoperfusion in CBF

Several studies have reported hypoperfusion of the brain parenchyma in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. We hypothesized a possible relationship between abnormal perfusion in MS and hampered venous outflow at the extracranial level, a condition possibly associated with MS and known as chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI):
