Abstract

Three degrees of ovarian varicocele in sterile women or women with menstrual disturbance were described on the basis of analysis of 62 superselective ovariophlebograms. A nonsurgical pathogenetic method for correction of ovarian hypofunction in disturbed circulation in the venous region of the pelvic organs was developed by cutting off the ovarian vein from the pathological renocaval vascular shunt with the help of roentgenovascular intervention. It is based upon transcatheter occlusion of the left ovarian vein and directly follows diagnostic phlebography. Roentgenoendovascular occlusion of the left ovarian vein was performed in 41 patients Ivanissevich's operation--in 8 patients. In 4-18 months after intervention, improved results of a clinical picture and functional diagnostic tests were observed in 46 patients. Of 19 women with passable uterine tubes 14 got pregnant.
