Varicose veins of the pelvis is very similar to the condition of varicose veins in the legs. In both cases, suffering from the valves in the veins that help the blood to the heart. Disturbed action of the valves prevents the back flow of blood. When the valves are destroyed in the veins, blood congestion occurs.

  2. Ultrasound of the venous system of study allows to see the veins.
  3. Dopplerography. Detects the lowering speed of the systole, the veins of the uterus and ovaries.
  4. Range auricularia. The exact research. Performed with injection of contrast through the femoral and subclavian vein.
  5. Computed tomography. You can rule out pathology, to identify varicose veins in the uterus and ovaries, displays them on the screen.

Such methods can be used to determine more accurately the symptoms of the disease.

To standardize the diagnosis and try a difference approach to the treatment of A. E. Volkov classified varicosity of the veins of small pelvis depending on the diameter of the dilated vessels, and localization of venous ectasia.

There are 3 degrees of this disease:

  • 1 the degree — diameter veins up to 5 mm (all of the venous plexus of the small pelvis), "corkscrew-shaped" course of the ship;
  • 2 degree — diameter veins 6-10 mm total type of varicosity;
  • 3 degree — diameter veins >10 mm total type BP type parametrului localization.

Depending on the severity of the pathological process in the hip it is possible to use conservative therapies and surgical intervention.

Treatment of varicose veins of the pelvis

If a woman was diagnosed with varicose veins of small pelvis, the goal of treatment is to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Termination of reverse blood flow in the veins of the ovaries.
  2. Normalizing venous tone, improving blood flow to the tissues.
  3. Withdrawal symptoms: pain, bleeding and so on.

Treatment VRM includes two main components:

  1. The course of medication during exacerbation.
  2. Continued use of physiotherapy to prevent the recurrence of.

At varicose illness of veins of the pelvis 1 or 2 degrees, commonly used conservative methods of treatment ( non-specific anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy). Conservative treatment of the syndrome of venous blood in the pelvic symptoms, such as the normalization conditions on labor and rest, with the exception of considerable physical exertion and prolonged stay in an upright position.

Because of the internal location of the affected veins, oral medications have been determined, use the venous gels and creams is not possible. Apply the following tools:

  1. Diosmin to eliminate the increased flexibility of blood vessels, reduce their permeability, to prevent fractures;
  2. Take horse chestnut relieves the swelling and inflammation;
  3. Troxerutin – enhance the outflow of blood from damaged blood vessels, increase vein tonicity, reduce swelling and inflammation;
  4. Vitamin C strengthens the walls of blood vessels.

Experts recommend combining medication, physical therapy and wearing special compression underwear. In particular, the need for compression arises during pregnancy.


Surgery is an extreme measure, which is used when the disease is very neglected, and there is a tendency in BP to the veins. Surgical intervention is chosen depending on the location of major violations, and to provide such procedures:

  • ligation of ovarian veins;
  • ligation genital a vein (often in combination with mini phlebectomy branch);
  • operation Troyanov-Trendelenburg (crossectomy) in the case of injury also in the veins of the lower extremities.

If needed surgical intervention when selecting appropriate measures, it is very individual, as it all depends on the location of the varicosity.


Physical treatment of varicosity of small pelvis consists of these exercises:

In the aftermath of the

The most common complications of this disease are:

  • diseases of the uterus and appendages inflammatory;
