Septic postpartum ovarian vein thrombosis.


This report describes the clinical findings and outcome of a patient suffering from septic postpartum ovarian vein thrombosis. Treatment modalities are well described and range from hysterectomy and thrombectomy to the use of vena cava filters in combination with anticoagulation and antibiotics. Defervescence with a combination infusion of tissue plasminogen and heparin were used. This treatment approach has been found particularly successful in cases of ilio-femoral, hepatic, renal and vena caval thromboses.
