Why would you need an anticoagulant if the blood is already in the abdomen? Thanks for the video!

Do we know what the cause is for this hemoabdomen? What happened before this? Was he ultra sounded before this procedure was done to make sure that the abdominal bleed wasn't severe? I only ask because
I would imagine that this procedure would be best on a patient that has a slow bleed.
