Abstract

Ovarian vein embolotherapy is a relatively new treatment for pelvic congestion syndrome that is claimed to be safe and effective. A 36-year-old woman underwent ovarian (without internal iliac) vein embolotherapy for pelvic congestion syndrome. Her pain was improved following the procedure. Within three months of the procedure, she started experiencing distressing abnormal uterine bleeding. Specifically, she developed profuse bleeding after intercourse. After thorough evaluation and counseling, a total abdominal hysterectomy was eventually performed. The use of ovarian vein embolization for treatment of pelvic congestion syndrome may be associated with abnormal uterine bleeding.
