Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm resulting from hysteroscopic myomectomy is a rare clinical situation, and interventional radiologists are not traditionally involved in the management. To our knowledge, endovascular treatment of a pseudoaneurysm resulting from hysteroscopic myomectomy has not yet been reported in the English-language literature. Here, two such cases are reported, including one of a woman who later became pregnant. The case is unique because little is known about the influence of unilateral coil embolization of the uterine artery on fertility.
