The identification of ovarian arteries on contrast-enhanced MDCT may be difficult because they are smaller than ovarian veins
Laparoscopy-assisted left ovarian vein
transposition to treat one case of posterior nutcracker syndrome.
(5) One accepted explanation for the predominant right localization is that the right ovarian vein
has many incompetent valves along its length that may act as a nidus for thrombosis.
Leiomyomas might invade the uterine or ovarian veins
, and can progress into the IVC and right heart16.
What is the significance of ovarian vein
reflux detected by computed tomography in patients with pelvic pain?
The cause of pelvic varicosities is reflux or backward flow of blood in the ovarian veins
due to the absence of functioning valves, which result in retrograde blood flow and eventful venous dilatation.
In addition, a thrombus was identified in the right ovarian vein
and the iliac vein was distended.
Uterine torsion with ovarian vein
rupture in a ewe.
The left ovarian vein
and the cranial border of the left renal vein were the lateral and upper limits of left aortic dissection, respectively.
Treatment of pelvic varicosities causing lower abdominal pain with extraperitoneal resection of the left ovarian vein
. Ann Chir Gynaecol 1984; 73:339-341.
Subsequently, an abdominal ultrasound with color-flow Doppler showed a suspicious thrombus distending and occluding the right ovarian vein
with no flow seen on Doppler.
Nurse-led presentations covered a range of topics from complex interventional procedures like embolisation of the ovarian vein
, embolisation of the Vein of Galen, percutaneous aortic valve replacement, stereotactic embolisation and radiation therapy for cerebral aneurysm.
