Broad ligament pregnancy with pelvic congestion syndrome
Researchers present the first case that describes a right broad ligament pregnancy patient complicated with pelvic congestion syndrome.

A 23-year-old female was referred to the gynecological emergency room with pelvic pain and amenorrhea. Serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (?-hCG) test of the patient was positive, and ultrasonography indicated that there were mixed mass signals and a large number of blood flow signals in the right parauterine area.

Considering the possibility of a diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy, they performed laparoscopic exploration for this patient. According to the intraoperative situation, they formally diagnosed the right broad ligament pregnancy.

Although the intraoperative hemorrhage was fierce, doctors still successfully completed the resection of the lesion and performed the ipsilateral salpingectomy.

They performed three-dimensional CT vascular reconstruction on the patient after surgery and diagnosed right pelvic congestion syndrome combined with the patient's usual chronic pelvic pain symptoms.
