Author information

Department of Surgery, University Central Hospital, Turku, Finland.


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.
