Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is common in the elderly. The surgery of choice in those who failed medical treatment is transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). Haematuria post TURP can be distressing and difficult to manage. The physiological changes in the elderly have led to inability to withhold hypovolaemic states especially in inoperable candidate. Using endovascular modalities, this complication can be managed efficiently without endangering patientsí well-being. Herein, we present a case of a successful prostatic artery embolization in a patient with poor surgical fitness, which was complicated with bleeding post TURP.

Keywords: Benign prostatic hyperplasia, lower urinary tract symptoms, transurethral resection of prostate, bleeding post TURP, prostatic artery embolization
