Abstract

In the field of gynecologic oncology, surgical intervention has been the traditional management of postoperative abdominal hemorrhage. Recently, arterial embolization has been reported to effectively control vaginal hemorrhage associated with gynecologic malignancy, obstetrical trauma, and hysterectomy. This study reports the use of arteriographic embolization in the management of six cases of postoperative abdominal and retroperitoneal arterial hemorrhage. Analysis of these cases provides valuable information which enhances the safety and efficacy of this procedure. Results suggest that arterial embolization, by an experienced arteriographer, should be considered early in the post-operative management of abdominal hemorrhage in gynecology and gynecologic oncology.
