Abstract: Bleeding of iatrogenic origin was treated by embolization in four patients. It concerned a post-operative bleeding in the thigh after total hip replacement, a post-operative pelvic bleeding after biopsy of the iliac bone, a retroperitoneal hemorrhage after percutaneous sympathicus blockage and an intrarenal bleeding after percutaneous nephrostomy. Embolization proved to be a very efficient method in the control of these iatrogenic bleedings, with minimal risk and stress for the patient. It could prevent reintervention and prolongation of the hospitalisation.
