In brief: Ovarian veins.

A thrombus or thrombosis is a clot in a vein so an ovarian vein thrombosis is a clot in the ovarian vein which drains the ovary.
On the left side the ovarian vein drains into the left renal (kidney) vein and on the right side the ovarian vein drains into the inferior vena cava.

In brief: Ov Vein Thrombosis

Ovarian vein thrombosis can occur after recent childbirth (postpartum) or other conditions like pelvic inflammatory disease, gynecologic pelvic surgery, malignancy, etc.
It is a serious condition that requires anticoagulation with blood thinners as it can cause pulmonary embolism. infected ovarian vein thrombosis needs additional therapy with antibiotics.
