[edit] Discussion of Pelvic congestion syndrome

  • Pelvic congestion syndrome involves vague symptoms, including chronic pelvic pain, that are associated with dilated ovarian veins and pelvic varices resulting from left renal vein reflux.

[edit] Imaging Findings for Pelvic congestion syndrome

  • CT and MR imaging findings of this condition include varicose veins around the uterus and ovaries with retrograde filling of ovarian veins.
  • The uterus is enlarged, usually with engorged arcuate vessels in the myometrium.
  • Some researchers consider ovarian veins with diameters greater than 5 mm pathognomonic for pelvic congestion syndrome, but this diagnostic criterion is not universally accepted.
