Varicose veins of vagina and vulva – Prof Mark Whiteley featured in Daily Mail

by – June 3, 2014

Women suffering from varicose veins of vagina and vulva is a common problem after childbirth that can now be cured. Unfortunately most gynaecologists and midwives don’t seem to know this and so women are left to suffer without curative treatment.

Vaginal and vulval varicose veins in Daily Mail - featuring Prof Mark Whiteley

Since 2000, Prof Mark Whiteley and his team have been researching pelvic varicose veins – the cause of pelvic congestion syndrome and varicose veins of the vagina and vulva. They have perfected the Transvaginal Duplex Ultrasound scan which their research shows is far superior to CT, MRI and venograms to find out the source of pelvic varicose veins.

Coil Embolisation

Once found, these can be treated under X-ray control using a technique called “Coil Embolisation”. Through a single needle hole, a special catheter can be passed through the venous system into the pelvic veins that are causing the problem. A metal coil can then be passed into the vein, causing it to contract and permanently close.

After 6 weeks, many of the visible varicose veins have gone and most of the discomfort and pain caused by the varicose veins has also been cured. Any remaining veins can be injected with foam sclerotherapy using the Carbon Dioxide/Oxygen foam technique published by The Whiteley Clinic that is much safer than the original Air foam technique.
