Abstract

Gynecological malignancies may present as life-threatening vaginal bleeding. Pelvic packing and Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta (REBOA) may be useful along with conventional vaginal packing when in terms of control of the hemorrhage. Emergency physicians should be able to perform these interventions promptly in order to save their patients from exsanguination.
