In this paper, I present a case of pyomyoma, acute renal failure, and ischemic heart disease that occurred as a complication of uterine artery embolization for uterine myoma with massive vaginal bleeding. The findings in this case suggest that although uterine artery embolization is generally safe, it may occasionally cause serious acute complications.
