this is  ccsvi:

Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a term coined by Dr. Paolo Zamboni. Dr. Paolo Zamboni from the University of Ferrara in Italy published preliminary findings about an apparent association between CCSVI and MS in June 2008, following a study of 65 patients.

CCSVI describes a theory in which portions of the venous system (the body’s network of large and small veins) in the head and neck are narrowed or blocked and therefore unable to efficiently remove blood from the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).

  1. The treatment for CCSVI is a vascular balloon angioplasty, which is a slightly invasive procedure. The procedure is performed as an outpatient treatment and the patient is awake during the procedure. This procedure has been successfully performed on both ambulatory and non-ambulatory patients.

    Worldwide, there have been well over 30,000 patients treated, with few complications.
