We describe a case of a large chorioangioma diagnosed at 18 weeks' gestation. Because of advanced fetal heart failure at 23 weeks' gestation, embolization of the chorioangioma's vessels was performed by percutaneous injection of Glubran 2 surgical glue. There was no immediate secondary effect of treatment. Devascularization was complete and durable. Signs of fetal cardiac failure normalized after 1 month and a healthy infant was delivered at 38 weeks. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of perinatal survival after successful embolization of a chorioangioma using tissue glue.
