Professor Mark Whiteley introduced the day and launched a new Pelvic Congestion Syndrome patient information leaflet that provides an in-depth overview of the condition. The comprehensive leaflet also includes a patient account from Heather Scott who successfully had pelvic vein embolization at The Whiteley Clinic in January 2016.
Heather then spoke to delegates in the Auditorium and shared her experiences of the condition and the struggle to have her symptoms accurately diagnosed, prior to being referred to The Whiteley Clinic
Using previous video footage of a PCS patient, Judy was then able to provide more detail about the anatomy and specifics of this patient and her condition whilst fielding questions from delegates.
The patient being scanned had twice recurrent varicose veins of the legs before referral to The Whiteley Clinic.
The afternoon will continue looking at Pelvic Congestion Syndrome with two live procedures by Doctor David Beckett, supported by Julie Beckett and Rob Barwell.
