In 32 patients (31.5 +/- 14.1 years, 25 males) with spinal trauma,(More)

Transcatheter embolization was performed in 45 patients suffering from potentially lethal bleeding originating from malignant tumours in the pelvic region. In 21 cases, the basic disease was rectosigmoidal and in 20, gynaecological in origin. Uncommon bleeding sites were embolized in four other cases. The median survival time (Kaplan-Meier) was 6 months.(More)
