Selective visceral arteriography was found to be invaluable in the management of two cases of severe gastrointestinal haemorrhage associated with cavernous haemangiomata (a large gastric haemangioma and a small jejunal haemangioma). It is suggested that arteriography may be indicated in cases where a previous laparotomy has not shown the cause of bleeding, when the patient's general condition precludes a prolonged operation, and when superficial haemangiomata are found.
