      Abstract

      A uterine arteriovenous malformation was diagnosed angiographically in a 27-year-old woman presenting with recurrent menometrorrhagia. Bilateral hypogastric artery embolization with a liquid polymer, isobutyl 2-cyanoacrylate (Bucrylate), resulted in subsequent normal menses. Bucrylate offers a number of advantages over other agents previously used to embolize uterine arteriovenous malformations.
