This is a case report of a case of post abortal bleeding with hepatic dysfunction with coagulopathy. The lady presented primarily as uncontrollable post abortal bleeding with severe anaemia and coagulopathy. The recent history of her check curettage in view of her having incomplete abortion was the only clinching factor for the diagnosis. She had AV malformation in the uterus which got stimulated for bleed due to the check curettage which was done. Hence as life saving procedure uterine artery embolization was performed on this lady successfully. This is exceptional case where uterine artery embolization was performed in a clinically unstable patient.
