Abstract

A 37-year-old woman with secondary postpartum hemorrhage due to a pseudoaneurysm rupture of the uterus was given selective uterine arterial embolization, and she was discharged in stable condition on the fourth postembolization day. Secondary postpartum hemorrhage due to rupture of a pseudoaneurysm is a rare condition, and selective uterine arterial embolization is the treatment of choice in hemodynamically stable patients. © 2010 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
