Therapeutic vascular embolization in life-threatening gynecologic hemorrhages

, : Therapeutic vascular embolization in life-threatening gynecologic hemorrhages. Zentralblatt für Gynakologie 107(17): 1050-1056

Report on 12 women with acute massive or chronic tumor hemorrhage, treated with embolisation. There were 7 women with cervical cancer T3/T4, 3 women with adenocarcinoma (2mal primary progressive, one with metastases in lymph-nodes), one woman with progressive malignant mesenchymale tumor in vagina and one with local persistent ovarian cancer. In 10/12 cases hemorrhage stopped immediately after embolisation. In 3 cases, after one-sided embolization, repeated procedure of the contralateral vessel was necessary. In 2/12 cases side-effects like fever and subileus, and, in one case, complications like skin necrosis and bladder-vagina-fistula were seen. In all patients temporary improvement of life-quality were found. Low risk and good tolerance of this palliative therapy are emphasized.
