Pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS), now becoming known as pelvic venous disorders (PVeD), is one of the most under-diagnosed medical conditions around.
PCS is a cause of:
Unfortunately, very few doctors or nurses understand the pelvic veins.
However, Prof Mark Whiteley and the venous experts at The Whiteley Clinic has spent the last 20 years studying and treating pelvic veins.
Today, Mark published a video online full of animations, to help patients understand what is meant by pelvic congestion syndrome. It also goes through the different problems that can happen such as ovarian vein reflux and internal iliac vein reflux. It also explains how coil embolisation improves the flow in these patients.
Mark also explains Nutcracker syndrome and points out how rare this actually is. The Nutcracker syndrome and also the treatment is explained in the animations.
Although the animations help bring the understanding of blood flow to life, for a deep understanding of this fascinating subject, Mark has written a book.
“Pelvic Congestion Syndrome – Chronic Pelvic Pain and Pelvic Venous Disorders” was published on 7 October 2019. It was the first book on Amazon in the UK and America on pelvic congestion syndrome.
It is already attracting many positive reviews both from patients and doctors alike.
Mark and his team hope that by helping patients and their relatives understand this complex condition, patients who have been told that they have endometriosis or have “nothing wrong with them” will be able to get better care in the future.
