Ectopic pregnancy is a potential lifethreatening condition and can be treated conservatively, with methotrexat or acute surgery depending upon the patient's condition. A 38-year-old woman was brought to the gynaecological acute ward with an ectopic pregnancy. However, the woman had a previous history of major abdominal surgery and many adhesions. In a multidisciplinary effort it was decided to perform an embolisation of the uterine artery with a good result. This case study depicts that an embolisation can be a valid treatment of an ectopic pregnancy.
