A 66-year-old para III with a 20-year history of stress urinary incontinence underwent placement of tension-free vaginal tape. Intraoperative arterial bleeding occurred. An expanding hematoma was palpated postoperatively. Interventional radiology performed a pelvic arteriogram with selective bilateral internal iliac arteriograms, a supraselective anterior division and obturator arteriogram, a left external iliac arteriogram, coil embolization of a branch of the left obturator artery, and gel foam embolization of the anterior division of the left internal iliac artery.
