Acquired vascular malformation in ruptured caesarean section scar: a rare cause of life-threatening vaginal bleeding
Uterine arteriovenous malformations (AVM) are rare and potentially life-threatening lesions. Patients present with severe vaginal bleeding which usually does not respond to conservative management and on most of occasions requires radiological or surgical intervention. We report a case of acquired AVM in a ruptured caesarean section scar. The patient presented with life-threatening vaginal bleeding and was treated with gonadotropin releasing hormone agonist and subsequent angioembolisation coiling.
