Abstract

Major hemorrhage is the main cause of morbidity and mortality associated with pelvic trauma. Although most cases are associated with pelvic fractures, soft tissue injury alone may occasionally be responsible for major bleeding. We report a case of major extra-peritoneal hemorrhage that occurred as a result of soft tissue injury of the pubic branch of the inferior epigastric artery (IEA), which was managed successfully with selective embolization.
