Life-threatening spontaneous psoas haematoma treated by transcatheter arterial embolization.
Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal Article
We report two cases of large spontaneous psoas haematoma in patients on anticoagulant therapy. Active bleeding was well demonstrated on spiral CT. Transcatheter arterial embolization was used successfully to stop bleeding. The diagnostic strategy, the relevance of spiral computed tomography and our therapeutic approach to this complication are discussed.
