Abstract

Management of presacral hemorrhage has always been a challenge for surgeons because such bleeding can rapidly destabilize a patient during pelvic surgery. Conventional hemostatic measures are often effective for arresting this type of hemorrhage, however, sometimes conventional measures make the problem worse. A number of alternative hemostatic techniques have been proposed. This case report describes a successful tamponade of presacral hemorrhage with a titanium table fixation staple and a cancellous bone graft fixed to the sacrum. The bleeding was stopped immediately and the patient recovered uneventfully. We think this is an effective alternative method for controlling massive hemorrhage from a large hole in presacral fascia.
