By some estimates, chronic pelvic pain in women accounts for 10 to 15 percent of all gynecologic visits*. There may be several causes or contributing factors to chronic pelvic pain and vascular conditions are often overlooked. Vascular conditions that cause pelvic pain in women can be diagnosed easily and in a non-invasive manner. Once identified, they can be further evaluated by venography and treated successfully with outpatient-based endovascular techniques. Center for Vascular Medicine is one of the leading out-patient based practices in the nation for the treatment of venous conditions in the pelvic region which cause pelvic pain. Causes For Pelvic Pain in Women Pelvic pain can be caused by a variety of non-vascular conditions*: 37% Gastrointestinal 31% Urinary 20% Reproductive 12% Musculoskeletal/Other After these other, more common causes for pelvic pain have been ruled out, one should consider further vascular evaluation. Choosing the right specialist is VERY important. The Center for Vascular Medicine is one of the nation’s leading centers for the diagnosis and treatment of Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS) and May-Thurner Syndrome.
