      Abstract

      A 21-year-old woman had an arteriovenous fistula of the uterus diagnosed by arteriography after several episodes of profuse uterine bleeding. Arteriographic embolization of the uterine vessels was performed twice with the resumption of normal menses after the second procedure. 15-Methyl-prostaglandin F was used effectively for short-term control of hemorrhage.
