Presented herein are therapeutic outcomes obtained in treatment of nineteen female patients suffering from varicose disease of the veins of the small pelvis. Based on the findings obtained by ultrasonographic, radionuclide and roentgenocontrast methods of investigation examination they were diagnosed with the syndrome of pelvic venous plethora. The indications for endovasal occlusion of the ovarian veins were the presence of the clinical signs of pelvic venous congestion, dilatation of and blood reflux along the gonadal veins based on the findings of instrumental methods of examination. It was determined that endovascular embolization of the gonadal veins in 84% of cases resulted in permanent relief of chronic pelvic pain.
