Endovascular angioplasty in treatment of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency

Objective To explore the efficacy and safety of endovascular angioplasty in treatment of chronic cerebrovascular venous insufficiency (CCSVI). Methods Totally 44 CCSVI patients who underwent endovascular treatment were retrospectively analyzed. Results Among 44 patients with CCSVI, 38 underwent PTA alone and 6 underwent PTA combined with stent implantation. The operation success rate was 100% (44/44). After 3 months' following-up, no severe complication occurred. The mean score of dizziness handicap inventory decreased from (31.14±8.69) preoperatively to (12.23±9.52) postoperatively(t=13.378, P < 0.01). Conclusion Endovascular treatment of CCSVI is safe and effective in short-term. Long-term results require further following-up.
