The success of transcatheter embolization of hypogastric arteries, as a hemostatic method in massive chronic vesical hemorrhage, is discussed. The observed patients showed a reduced possibility of survival rates as they presented pelvic neoplasms in advanced stages (T3 - T4), and they could not undergo surgery due to their poor general conditions. 9 patients with treated pelvic neoplasms were also studied and the course of the disease is discussed as well as investigations on some embolization agents, action modality, requirements and eventual dangers. The embolization technique is compared with some other methods which may be carried out during massive vesical hemorrhage; its advantages and disadvantages are pointed out.
