Ovarian vein embolization

Pelvic congestion syndrome is a painful condition resulting from the presence of  varicose veins in the pelvi. Diagnostic of the condition is done through clinical examination and one of several methods: pelvic venography, MRI and Ultrasounds
  • Ovarian vein embolization is a minimally invasive intervention
  • During this intervention, an interventional radiologist inserts a catheter up the femoral vein and into the faulty vein(s)
  • Catheterization requires only a small nick in the skin for insertion and x-ray image guidance of the catheter to its target area The catheter delivers coils that clot the blood and seal the faulty vein
  • The use of the aetoxisclerol foam agent allows the radiologist to block even the smallest veins not previously accessible
  • In a small percentage of cases, the procedure is not technically possible because the catheter cannot be positioned appropriately
