Hypervascular placental polypoid mass is a possible source of acute hemorrhage after pregnancy. We present a case report and literature review of a rare case after spontaneous miscarriage. We describe the diagnosis, imaging, and management of placental polyps, which includes the use of iliac artery occlusion catheters with concomitant hysteroscopic resection.
