CCSVI Procedure Details in Merida, Mexico
What is CCSVI Liberation Surgery?
CCSVI, or Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency, is a syndrome affecting some persons with multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) tends to affect the ability of the brain’s nerve cells to communicate with one another.
In particular, CCSVI compromises the role of venous blood flow in draining the nervous system. Thus may contribute to the development of multiple sclerosis.
The CCSVI procedure in Merida, Mexico
Prior to treatment you will receive extensive pre-op testing consisting of an MRVenogram of the jugular and vertebral veins (the azygos vein will be examined during the procedure), bloodtest and neurological assessment. Please click here for a description of the CCSVI Medical Team in Merida. The actual CCSVI procedure will be done under Conscious Sedation, which means you will be able to respond to verbal commands but have an altered level of consciousness and will not feel pain.
In a few cases, patients may require general anesthesia if deemed medically necessary. Veins treated will be the azygos, both internal jugular veins and the vertebral veins.
Your procedure will take place at Star Médica, Merida and usually takes between 2-4 hours, much longer than at some other hospitals since the medical team likes to take their time in order to provide you with the best results possible. After your procedure, you generally will stay for 6-8 hours for observation. In some cases an overnight stay will be required. Prior to hospital discharge, a Doppler Ultrasound will be performed to confirm that the veins stayed open. After hospital discharge, you should restrain from strenuous activities and lifting for 2-3 days.
