Fifteen selective arterial embolizations with Gelfoam pledgets were utilized to control bleeding in 13 gynecologic oncology patients. Complications and morbidity were minimal. Embolization of neoplastic vasculature and/or major arteries supplying the pelvis controlled bleeding even when no distinct bleeding site could be determined, and proved effective in managing both acute and chronic bleeding. Methodology is outlined, and indications are discussed.
