Title: Transvenous Embolization to Treat Uncontrolled Hemobilia and Peritoneal Bleeding After Transjugular Liver Biopsy

Abstract

Hemobilia is one of the complications that can occur after a transjugular liver biopsy. Various treatment options have been described for the management of this condition, including transarterial embolization and open surgery. We describe a patient who developed uncontrolled hemobilia after a transjugular liver biopsy that required a transvenous approach for embolization and treatment purposes.
