Major bleeding, typically due to laceration of abdominal wall arteries or venous varices, is a rare but serious complication of paracentesis. We report a case of major bleeding post paracentesis to evidence that a sequence of 1) customized post processing of computed tomographic angiography data for periprocedural guidance, followed by 2) transcatheter cyanoacrylate glue embolotherapy, is the optimal treatment of this complication.
