Image-guided interventions have allowed for minimally invasive treatment of many common diseases, obviating the need for open surgery. While percutaneous interventions usually represent a safer approach than traditional surgical alternatives, complications do arise nonetheless. Inadvertent injury to blood vessels represents one of the most common types of complications, and its affect can range from inconsequential to catastrophic. The interventional radiologist must be prepared to manage hemorrhagic risks from percutaneous interventions. This manuscript discusses this type of iatrogenic injury, as well as preventative measures and treatments for postintervention bleeding.
