Vulval varices and perivulval veins are common though often unrecognised, and pelvic pain is a common complaint, sometimes without an obvious cause, hence treatment is not always successful. An association between these two problems has long been established, and some cases of pelvic pain are clearly associated with venous pathology. Often, these patients present to the vein clinic with recurrent varicose veins, because the standard procedures have failed and the pelvic origin was not… Expand
Pelvic insufficiency: a deeper look at female and male gonadal vein incompetence
TLDR
The overall treatment and outcome for the patient, not to mention the long term benefits, will be significantly improved if this condition is diagnosed correctly and standardised and more common practice of diagnosing female insufficiency should be implemented. Expand
Vulvar Varices: An Uncommon Entity in Surgical Pathology
TLDR
Clinically, vulvar varices may present as small isolated protrusions, mainly in the labia majora, or as large masses, involving the vulva and even the perivulvar area, which may lead to incorrect diagnosis of the lesion. Expand
Vulvar Varicosities: A Review
TLDR
In women with persistent VV, imaging studies should be obtained before treatment to evaluate the surrounding venous anatomy of the pelvis and leg, as the results often affect the treatment approach. Expand
Successful ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy for vulval and leg varicosities secondary to ovarian vein reflux: a case study
TLDR
One out of many PCS patients treated with UGFS of the pelvic tributaries alone, with clinically symptomatic improvement is presented. Expand
Pelvic Vein Embolisation in the Management of Varicose Veins
TLDR
The results of the study showed that pelvic venous embolisation by way of a transjugular approach is a safe and effective technique in the treatment of pelvic vein reflux. Expand
Varicose veins in women with Pelvic Congestion Syndrome: the hypothesis of the hormonal pathogenesis
Pelvic veins incompetence may cause varicose veins formation in the lower extremity due to leak points of the pelvic circulation. This observation is particularly frequent in recurrence casesExpand
[Pelvi-perineal venous insufficiency and varicose veins of the lower limbs: duplex Doppler diagnosis and endoluminal treatment in thirty females].
TLDR
Good preliminary results obtained after embolization of the pelvic veins, and particularly the left utero-ovarian vein, suggests this therapeutic approach should be pursued, and the long-term effect should be assessed because of the plexiform nature of recurrent venous disorders. Expand
Pattern and types of non-saphenous vein reflux
TLDR
The majority of patients with NSV reflux have varicose veins and lower extremity oedema; however, about 10% of those patients present with skin damage. Expand

Perivulval varices appear during pregnancy and usually disappear after delivery but become more prominent with subsequent pregnancies, and may be associated with recurrent leg varices. Expand

Transuterine Phlebography with Particular Reference to Pelvic Varicosities
TLDR
Transuterine phlebography was performed on patients of groups I and II with respect to the uterine veins and the direction of contrast flow in the ovarian veins to demonstrate that the entire left ovarian vein and some of the pelvic veins were contrast-filled in a retrograde direction in one group of women.

TLDR
The roentgenologic and anatomical appearances of the left gonadal vein were discussed by the present authors in two previous papers and the mean circumference figures indicated that the ovarian vein was significantly wider than the spermatic vein and that pregnancy was a contributory factor in this difference.
