[DJR-160 1.0 CE] Uterine Artery Embolization in the Twentieth Week of Pregnancy in Abnormally Invasive Placenta with Live Birth

An abnormally invasive placenta is an increasing and potentially life-threatening pregnancy complication. The case presented herein is a heterotopic dichorial pregnancy with implantation of 1 placenta within the isthmocervical area, which caused vaginal bleeding during the 20th week of pregnancy, requiring a blood transfusion. To stop the bleeding, a bilateral embolization of the cervical branches of the uterine arteries was performed. The embolization was well tolerated and resulted in the abrupt and lasting cessation of bleeding for more than 10 weeks, resulting in the live birth of 1 child.
