Özet


Abstract

Round ligament varices are seen in pregnancy and they are rarely encountered clinical conditions. They present with swelling and pain in the groin and can easily be misdiagnosed as strangulated inguinal hernia. While strangulated inguinal hernias require emergency surgical intervention, round ligament varices do not require surgery unless they are ruptured or thrombosed. Correct diagnosis by physical examination and ultrasonography can avoid an unnecessary surgical intervention during pregnancy and its related complications. In this report, a 28-year-old pregnant case, who determined round ligament varices referring to the swelling and pain in her right groin was reported and was examined in the light of literature.

Özet

Round ligament varisleri gebelikte görülen ve nadir olarak karşılaşılan klinik durumlardır. Kasık bölgesinde şişlik ve ağrı ile kendilerini gösterirler. Kolaylıkla strangule inguinal hernilerle karışabilirler. Strangule inguial herniler acil cerrahi müdahale gerektiriken round ligament varisleri, rüptüre veya tromboze olmadıkları sürece cerrahi müdahale gerektirmezler. Fizik muayene ve ultrasonografi ile doğru tanı konulması gebelik sırasında yapılacak gereksiz cerrahi girişimi ve buna bağlı olarak gelişebilecek komplikasyonları önler. Bu çalışmada, sağ kasığında şişlik ve ağrı şikayetiyle başvurarak round ligament varisi saptanan 28 yaşında gebe bir olgu sunulmuş ve literatür eşliğinde incelenmiştir.

 Anahtar kelimeler: Halka ligaman, Gebelik Komplikasyonları, Kardiyovasküler, Variköz venler
