Endovascular Management of Pelvic Trauma

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Major pelvic fractures result from high-energy trauma including traffic accidents and falls, which usually leads to multiple injuries complicating the patient's management. Management of these patients requires a coordinated multidisciplinary approach. Transcatheter embolization is a minimally invasive and effective technique to control massive hemorrhage and can be performed using a variety of embolic agents. It has become an accepted first-line management option for retroperitoneal bleeds in many centers. In this article, the indications for endovascular management of hemorrhage from pelvic trauma, the various embolization techniques, and potential complications will be discussed.
