Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is considered a safe and effective alternative to surgery for the treatment of fibroids. Vaginal discharge, hematoma, fever, postembolization syndrome, fibroid expulsion, and failure are commonly reported complications, while severe vascular complications are rare. Retrospective studies including patients having hysterectomy after UAE indicated the increased prevalence of intra-abdominal adhesions. We are presenting a rare case of severe intra-abdominal adhesions causing bowel obstruction, in need of emergency laparotomy, following UAE.
