- •The incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after interventions on the ovarian veins in patients with pelvic venous disorder (PeVD) is not well established.
- •We compared VTE rates after ovarian vein resection (OVR) and ovarian vein embolization (OVE) in patients with PeVD.
- •VTE was found to be more frequent after OVE with coils than after OVR (in 27% and 10% of patients, respectively; P = 0.001). The odds ratio for developing VTE after OVE with coils was 10 times higher than after OVR.
