Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Did you know that varicose veins can develop in the pelvis? It is a condition known as Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. At Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, we take heart in raising awareness of the proper evaluation and treatment of this under-diagnosed condition. Patients suffering from this syndrome commonly complain of pain and discomfort in the pelvis. Symptoms can range from a dull aching sensation to more severe discomfort, backache, painful intercourse and painful menstruation. The condition is mostly seen in women (although it can occur in males) who have had children and are left with large ropy pelvic varicosities. These dilated veins are similar to varicose veins in the legs but occur deep in the pelvis, often due to incompetent valves higher up.

At Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, our specialists employ the latest non-invasive diagnostic imaging techniques and may recommend treatment methods such as coil embolization. Additionally and at your discretion, we are also available to speak with your Gynecologist about your clinical diagnosis and the proposed options available to treat your condition. As medical care providers, it is important to us that individuals suffering from Pelvic Congestion Syndrome know that Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute can make a difference. We are very encouraged with the latest modalities that are emerging and the medical community’s desire to come together to treat this large segment of women within the vein disease population.
