Another CCSVI Study

A group of 40 people with MS were studied for venous insufficiency. They found that some patients had jugular vein narrowing and some did not. Importantly, venous narrowing was not necessarily associated with aberrant blood flow: only four of the patients had venous drainage abnormalities.

I guess the moral of the story was that 1. MRI/MRV is good for identifying venous narrowing but not necessarily for predicting venous drainage problems, 2. Venous narrowing and venous drainage problems are probably not related, and 3. Venous drainage problems are not likely as a cause of MS (since they occurred in only 10% of the patients.

(Disclosures: I am totally on the fence about the CCSVI thing--just reporting what I read.)
