Abstract

Fluoroscope-directed embolization of pelvic vessels and surgical abdominal packing were useful adjunctive therapies for uncontrollable hemorrhage in an advanced abdominal pregnancy. The patient's postoperative course was complicated by massive pulmonary emboli, prolonged ileus, pelvic cellulitis, and sensitivity to oral anticoagulation. Nonetheless, mother and infant ultimately survived in satisfactory condition.
