A case of a woman that had been transferred to our hospital in hemorrhagic shock secondary to post partum hemorrhage due to uterine atony, automatic abortion and extended vaginal lacerations has been described. Subtotal hysterectomy had already been performed but failed to control bleeding. The authors performed on table blind embolisation of internal iliac arteries in order to control hemorrhage as a life-saving procedure that was successful.
