Abstract [en]

Purpose: We report a unique method using transcatheter Onyx embolization in a bleeding due to morphineinjection in the gluteal region.Case report: A 47 year-old man with a rare blood type presented a painful glutealhematoma due to iatrogenic injury. A Computed Tomographic Angiography (CTA) verified bleedingfrom a suspected branch of the deep femoral artery. Due to the unbearable pain, the hematoma wasevacuated by means of CT guided puncture and the insertion of a pigtail catheter combined with theinjection of a human plasminogen activation agent (t-PA). The initial result was positive. In order tostop the bleeding, angiographic embolization with Onyx was successfully used.Conclusions:Onyx can be used insmall vessel bleedings and might offer the advantage of selective embolization in cases where theaccess to the bleeding vessel is challenging or time consuming.
