THE VENOUS IMPAIRMENT PROGRAM FOR MS
We currently offer diagnostic testing and intervention for CCSVI.
The testing/intervention include:
- Bilateral internal jugular and vertebral venous duplex ultrasound taken in supine and upright position
- Multi-slice venous CT of the head, neck, and chest to assess venous flow in the internal jugular, vertebrals and azygous veins.
- Venogram and venoplasty with possible stent (currently, only when absolutely indicated)
CBC, CMP, lipids, PT/PTT, TSH, and EKG prior to the intervention.
