We report a case of a woman in whom uterine arterial embolization was performed using absorbable gelfoam particles for control of refractory postpartum hemorrhage. Ten days after delivery, the woman experienced high fever and low abdominal pain. Histologic findings after hysterectomy were consistent with uterine necrosis and acute suppurative myometritis.
