Post partum persisting pudendal varicose veins effect of local excision

Post partum persisting pudendal varicose veins effect of local excision

Vasa 16(4): 352-353

Pudendal varicose veins that persist post partum usually cause perimenstrual symptoms. Considering the rather mild symptoms only minor surgery should be performed. The effect of local excision was studied in 27 women with pudendal varicose veins persisting for 13 years (mean). In 18 patients all symptoms were removed by the treatment, eight patients had considerable improvement, and one patient had some improvement of the symptoms. Mean follow-up time was 21 months (range 4-50 months). Local excision of persisting pudendal varicose veins is a small intervention which produces good results in most patients. Surgical interruption of the pelvic communicating veins should be confined to the few patients whose symptoms do not respond to local excision.
