Transcatheter embolization was performed in 4 patients suffering from potentially lethal bleeding originating from malignant tumors in the duodenal region. All patients were successfully embolized, using coils. Bleeding was controlled in one patient for 21 months. Selective embolization is a feasible and effective option in managing advanced duodenal malignancies presenting with intractable bleeding.
