Urethral injuries are primarily suggested in patients who are presented at the emergency service with straddle trauma. In addition, perineal vascular injuries are rarely observed in such traumas. In the literature, perineal, vascular injuries have been reported with high-flow priapism in many cases. We will present a treatment for a pure pudendal artery that disturbs hemodynamics. This technique is based on endovascular technique with minimal invasion in pediatric male patients who have followed a fall accompanied neither with urethral injury nor with priapism and those who could not have been controlled with conservative treatment but have a massive hemorrhage, which cannot be controlled with conservative treatment. © 2015 by Erciyes University School of Medicine.
