Selective arterial embolization is an established technique to control gastrointestinal bleeding in patients who are poor surgical risks and in whom bleeding is uncontrolled by other methods. This article describes the control of upper gastrointestinal bleeding by subselective embolization of a bleeding branch of the dorsal pancreatic artery in a patient with severe pancreatitis. This is the first recorded successful embolization of the dorsal pancreatic artery to control hemorrhage.
