Ovarian vein embolization

Ovarian Vein Embolization (OVE) is a minimally invasive procedure taking center stage in our comprehensive approach to Pelvic Venous Disease. Using advanced imaging techniques, the interventional radiologist guides a catheter into the diseased veins in the pelvis and closes the veins with the placement of embolic material and medication to redirect blood flow out of the pelvis and improve symptoms associated with pelvic congestion syndrome. Symptoms of this condition include an aching or heaviness in the pelvis that increases with prolonged standing or sitting. The pain increases with exercise or with your menstrual period. Some women experience pain during or after sexual activity with this condition.

Beyond the procedure: your path to lasting comfort

An in-depth consultation at Minneapolis Vein Center with one of our interventional radiologists allows you to discuss your pelvic symptoms and whether ovarian vein embolization is the appropriate option for you. Specific imaging studies, including ultrasound and CT, will likely be needed as part of a thorough workup and for treatment planning. With OVE, many women experience a significant decrease in their pelvic symptoms and, subsequently, an improved quality of life.
