We describe three cases of postoperative haemorrhage, two after total hip and one after total knee replacement, treated by percutaneous embolisation.

After diagnostic angiography, this is the preferred method for the treatment of postoperative haemorrhage due to the formation of a false aneurysm, after hip or knee arthroplasty.

This procedure, carried out under local anaesthesia, has a low rate of complications and avoids the uncertainty of further surgical exploration.
