Vascular injuries are frequently observed in cases of the pelvic trauma and femoral diaphysis. Hemostasis is often spontaneous. However, vascular injuries may cause severe internal hemorrhage which can quickly compromise vital prognosis. In these cases, arteriography provides localization of the origin of bleeding in order to activate hemostasis through an endovascular approach. This examination must be performed as quickly as possible.
