Abstract

The clinician has few medical and surgical options for managing life- threatening uterine hemorrhage. Hormone therapy often fails to arrest the bleeding. Hysterectomy under these emergency circumstances is also not optimal. Emergency endometrial ablation was successful in stopping exsanguinating uterine hemorrhage in three women and may be an important alternative in management of this disorder.
