I am a 36 year old woman who has history of left ovarian vein thrombosis extending into left renal vein. Recently, underwent vascular tests which revealed gonadal vein insufficiency, and had a embolization of the left renal vein. Is this the proper procedure for this injury?
Would this cause me to have chest pain, abnormal Ecg, and swelling?
Please help me, it seems something is wrong since I had this procedure.
Hi and welcome to question doctors.co.
If the intravenous thrombolytic and antibiotic treatments has failed then this embolization procedure might be considered as a treatment of choice…
I do not believe that the procedure may have such complications..
Unless you are still having problems with blood clotting factors and a high risk of developing deep venous thrombus or other thrombi at any part of your body…
I recommend doing clotting factor test,blood test ,INR and ECG and visiting a cardiologist to rule out any related pathologies As soon as possible…
this procedure can dislodge micro emboli from the thromosed part that may get stuck up in minor venules and cause chest pain and similar symptoms. get a chest xray and ecg done. consult a physician
IT IS LESS LIKELY TO HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS AS A COMPLICATION OF THE PROCEDURE PER SE. BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE THOUGH. IT SHOULD BE A RETROSPECTIVE DIAGNOSIS. CONCOMMITANT HEART DISEASE ALSO CAN CAUSE ABNORMAL ECGS,CHEST PAIN
though the procedure has been performed well,still there are such known complications. during the procedure,some minor emboli may get blocked in the chest veins and cause these symptoms. anti-coagulant medicines will be helpful
