Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is the current standard treatment for chronic mesenteric ischemia (CMI) in the elderly patients with advancement of atherosclerosis. PTA is associated with lower morbidity and mortality rates compared to surgical repair, a traditional treatment among the elderly with CMI. We present a case of spontaneous intraperitoneal hemorrhage after successful endovascular repair of severe superior mesenteric artery stenosis. We performed a selective coil embolization procedure and achieved successful control of spontaneous hemorrhage.
