Abstract

A case of postabortal hemorrhage in a patient with von Willebrand's disease was controlled by arteriographic embolization of the uterine branch of the internal iliac artery. Selective internal iliac artery embolization has been effectively used to control postpartum hemorrhage and hemorrhage resulting from pelvic malignancy. A discussion is presented for expanding the use of selective embolization for controlling uterine hemorrhage to patients suffering from postabortal bleeding as a means of controlling hemorrhage without sacrificing fertility.
