Abstract: A 48-year-old man underwent resection of a Moore prosthesis in his left hip because of septic arthritis. The patient developed a major postoperative wound hematoma in the left hip and significant drop in hemoglobin, which needed blood transfusion. Angiography was performed to locate and to treat the bleeding. Superselective catheterization, followed by embolization, using microparticles, produced total occlusion of the injured vessel. There was immediate cessation of bleeding and the patient recovered completely. (C) 1999 Harcourt Publishers Ltd.
