Intractable uterine haemorrhage, unresponsive to medical therapy or curettage, has been traditionally treated by hysterectomy and/or internal iliac artery ligation. Percutaneous angiographic localization of the bleeding vessel with subsequent embolization, may be a genuine alternative approach that enables preservation of reproductive potential with minimal morbidity. We present 3 such cases here, all subsequent to curettage in the first trimester of pregnancy, 2 after a therapeutic termination of pregnancy and the other after an incomplete abortion.
