Ovarian vein coil embolization for pelvic congestion syndrome
A 27-year-old female presented with complaints of chronic severe lower abdominal pain.
Diagnosis & Treatment
The USG and Doppler images demonstrated pelvic varicosities. The DSA image demonstrated dilated left ovarian vein with reflux into pelvic varicosities and endovascular coiling of ovarian veins. Ovarian vein coil embolization was performed. The postoperative abdominal radiograph demonstrated coils in-situ in bilateral ovarian veins. The patient had recovered and was free from pain at the time of follow up.
