First, the aortic occlusion catheter was inserted from the left femoral artery (arrowheads) and was embolized with a gelatin sponge from the origin portion of the bilateral internal iliac artery while the aorta was occluded at the first lumbar vertebra level. a Embolization of the lumbar artery and middle sacral artery was additionally performed and angiography from the sheath reinserted to the left femoral artery presented re-bleeding (arrow). b As it was difficult to arrest hemorrhage with a gelatin sponge, hemorrhage was arrested by embolizing additionally with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (c and d)
