Abstract
Pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS), which is said to occur due to ovarian vein incompetence, is a recognized cause of chronic pelvic pain (CPP). It is difficult to diagnose PCS because of a variety of symptoms. In addition, it can be underestimated by Computed Tomographic or Magnetic Resonance Imaging. At this time, gonadal venography remains the definitive imaging modality to evaluate patients with PCS. Medical and surgical approaches are available to treat PCS. More recently, however, transcatheter embolotherapy (TCE) has been shown to be both safe and effective. We have experienced a case of pelvic congestion syndrome that was diagnosed by venography.
Key Words: Pelvic congestion syndrome, Venography, Pelvic pain
