We read with great interest the systematic review by Poujade and colleagues [
] made to identify predictive factors for uterine necrosis after pelvic arterial embolization for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). The factors they identified among the 19 cases reported in the literature were the nature and size of embolic agents, the absence of visible anastomoses between the uterine and ovarian arteries on the first angiography and the use of free-flow embolization.
