The goals of palliative chemotherapy are to improve overall survival and the quality of life through relief of symptoms. Onthe other hand, chemotherapy has many side effects, such as, myelosupression, neuropathy, gastro-intestinal symptoms, andinfertility. On the many known side effects of chemotherapy, bleeding occurs in approximately 6-10% of patients with advancedcancer. Most of bleeding associated with chemotherapy is due to local vessel damage and systemic process, such as,disseminatated intravascular coagulopathy or abnormalities in platelet function or number. This symptom led to worse progressionof quality of life and severe stress state in patient and their attendant. Here, the authors report a case of chemotherapy-related bleeding in maxillary cancer patient and successful achievement of hemostasis using interventional endovasculartherapy.
