Abstract

Ten patients in whom severe haemorrhage from the bladder persisted after clot evacuation and fulguration were treated by continuous irrigation with 1% alum solution. Bleeding ceased in 8 patients, and was temporary in only one of these cases. In 2 patients with thrombocytopaenia the treatment failed. No side effects were noticed. Serum aluminium level was measured in one patient and the value was normal.
