"Based on the evaluation performed by the Hospital Physiotherapy Unit, patients already early postoperatively reported a decrease of fatigue, muscle weakness, spasticity and vision disturbances; they experienced an improvement in gait, mobility and balance; further, their mental acuity and neurogenic bowel and bladder dysfunction were improved
Follow-up at one year ascertained that the clinical benefits were maintained, while CD ultrasound and venography (Fig. 1) showed patency of the reconstructed veins."
Toivottavasti operoitujen tilanne säilyy hyvänä ja aika näyttää että tehdäänkö tulevaisuudessa enemmänkin em. kaltaisia kirurgisia operaatioita. Pallolaajennus ei toimi kaikilla potilailla ja toisaalta laajennetulla laskimolla on taipumus aikaa myöten ahtautua uudelleen. Siksipä edellä mainitun kaltaista tutkimustyötä todellakin tarvitaan lisää.

"Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is a vascular condition characterized by morphological alterations involving efferent cerebral vascular paths. CCSVI has been implicated as a contributing factor to multiple sclerosis (MS) but this theory is highly controversial. We report three cases of CCSVI patients with MS who had undergone internal jugular veins (IJVs) angioplasty to restore vessels patency. All patients reported significant symptomatic improvement after angioplasty until symptoms recurred following restenosis of the treated IJVs. Surgical IJVs reconstruction was performed. Patients’ symptoms gradually improved and the benefits were maintained at the one-year follow up"
