Vascular aspects of multiple sclerosis: myth or reality?

Cover Page

Abstract

The article contains recent literature data concerning vascular aspects of multiple sclerosis (MS). The review provides a summary of three vascular abnormalities described in MS which include increased risk of developing ischaemic stroke, widespread decrease in cerebral perfusion and chronic cerebral venouse insufficiency with the assessment of the endovascular interventions efficacy.
