Transcatheter embolization of the hypogastric arteries has become a more and more largely used therapeutic approach in mastering unrestrainable hemorrhages in bladder cancer patients. In this paper the authors report their experience with this method based on 9 cases, which could be followed for 1 year or until patient's death. The immediate and long term results are presented and discussed. The authors conclude that transcatheter hypogastric embolization is the best non invasive method to handle neoplastic pelvic hemorrhages.
