Radiation-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is an unpleasant and sometimes life-threatening complication confronted while treating pelvic malignancies. A wide array of treatment modalities such as bladder irrigation, fulguration, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and surgical methods has been proposed to treat hematuria, but there is no consensus on the optimal therapeutic strategy for the same. Reported here is a successful superselective embolization of the bilateral vesical arteries in a patient with refractory radiation-induced HC. This technique proved to be effective in controlling intractable hemorrhage and can be considered an option for the treatment of HC not amenable to conventional techniques.
