Abstract: Transcatheter arterial embolization was attempted in ten patients with gynaecological bleeding. It concerned eight malignant lesions (five cases of spinocellular carcinoma of the uterine cervix, one case of endometrium carcinoma, one case of choriocarcinoma and one case of vulvovaginal metastasis of hypernephroma), and two benign lesions (one uterine arteriovenous malformation and one bleeding after curettage). Bleeding could be stopped in six patients and considerably reduced in two. In two patients selective catheterization of the uterine artery was impossible due to atherosclerotic tortuosity in one and tumoral invasion in the other.
