Ultrasound Diagnosis of Lower Pelvic Varicosities in Women with Primary Valvular Insufficiency

Keywords: pelvic varicosities, ultrasound diagnosis of pelvic veins, ovarian vein, left renal vein

The aim of the research was to study the opportunities of ultrasound diagnostics and to identify ultrasound criteria for diagnostic parameters of pelvic veins in women with pelvic varicosities against the background of primary valvular insufficiency. The study included 102 women with pelvic congestion syndrome, the average age was 35.77±7.27 years. Ultrasound examination of pelvic veins was carried out on the basis of the developed and patented technique of ultrasound examination of pelvic veins in women. The median, the mean, minimum, maximum values, standard deviation of ultrasonic parameters were determined in the general sample; grouping/classification tasks were solved using cluster analysis methods. In the general sample, when comparing the results of the study, it was revealed that the average values of ultrasound parameters on the left were greater than those on the right. The greatest differences in the average values of the ovarian veins on both sides were in volumetric and maximum blood flow rates. Sensitivity was 95%, specificity – 90%. Ultrasound examination of pelvic veins makes it possible to evaluate the hemodynamics and anatomical features of the veins' structure to reduce the recurrence of varicose veins of the pelvic varicose disease and lower extremities varicose vein disease.
