Internal iliac artery ligation for severe postpartum hemorrhage and severe hemorrhage after postpartum hysterectomy

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of internal iliac artery ligation performed for severe postpartum hemorrhage in women with deep vein thrombosis.

Experience managing postpartum hemorrhage at Minia University Maternity Hospital, Egypt: No mortality using external aortic compression

Aim:  To compare maternal mortality and morbidity due to postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) at Minia University Maternity Hospital, El‐Minia, Egypt, before and while external aortic compression was applied

Obstetrical Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage

Practical obstetric techniques for management of postpartum hemorrhage are reviewed and there is a paucity of data to guide specific interventions for treatment.

Prehospital External Aortic Compression for Temporizing Exsanguinating Sub-Diaphragmatic Hemorrhage – A Promising Technique, but with Challenges: Four Illustrative Cases, Including Two Survivors

It is shown that EAC has life-saving potential in the prehospital setting, but that safety and efficacy during transport requires the use of a hands-free compression device, such as an aortic tourniquet.

Proximal External Aortic Compression for Life-Threatening Abdominal-Pelvic and Junctional Hemorrhage: An Ultrasonographic Study in Adult Volunteers

It is suggested that it may be reasonable to attempt temporization of major abdominal-pelvic and junctional hemorrhage using bimanual proximal external aortic compression in healthy adult men.

FEBRASGO POSITION Surgical management of postpartum hemorrhage

Surgical techniques for controlling postpartum hemorrhage should be used immediately after failure of drug therapy, preferably within the “golden hour”, and the combination of uterine compression suture and vascular ligation increases the effectiveness of surgical treatment of postpartums hemorrhage.

Procedures and Uterine-Sparing Surgeries for Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage: A Systematic Review

A limited body of evidence addresses these interventions for PPH on control of bleeding and adverse effects including infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes; understand the issues in defining and diagnosing PPH; and understand the areas of future research need.

The evaluation of an abdominal aortic tourniquet for the control of pelvic and lower limb hemorrhage.

This study shows the AAT to be effective in the control of blood flow in the pelvis and proximal lower limb and potentially lifesaving.



External Abdominal Aortic Compression: A Study of a Resuscitation Manoeuvre for Postpartum Haemorrhage

It is recommended that external aortic compression be considered in severe life-threatening postpartum haemorrhage, particularly during stabilisation or transport of the patient, particularly in locations or situations where advanced medical assistance is geographically or temporally removed.

Control of intractable abdominal bleeding by external counterpressure.

Pressure of 20 to 25 mm Hg circumferentially applied to the abdomen and legs for periods up to 48 hours is a safe, effective, and practical adjunct to standard medical and surgical techniques for

This discussion provides a practical approach to establish an accurate diagnosis of PPH and an expeditious application of medical, surgical, and radiographic management.

El-menia air inflated balloon in controlling atonic post partum hemorrhage.

El-Menia balloon is an inexpensive, easy to apply, effective in controlling APPH with minimal side effects and is targeted for use on a large scale in developing countries to reduce the maternal mortality and morbidity caused by APPH.

Prevention and management of postpartum hemorrhage.

Early recognition, systematic evaluation and treatment, and prompt fluid resuscitation minimize the potentially serious outcomes associated with postpartum hemorrhage.

Control of Hemorrhage in Critical Femoral or Inguinal Penetrating Wounds—An Ultrasound Evaluation

Flow to the CFA can be stopped completely with pressure over the distal Abdominal Aorta or proximal iliac artery in catastrophic wounds, but a first responder still may need to apply upward of 120 pounds of pressure to stop exsanguination.

Emergency obstetric care in developing countries: impact of guidelines implementation in a community hospital in Senegal

Objective  To evaluate, with volunteer professionals in a resource‐poor setting, an approach of audit and feedback to promote local implementation of emergency obstetric guidelines.

Different Doses of Sublingual Misoprostol versus Methylergometrine for the Prevention of Atonic Postpartum Haemorrhage.

Misoprostol in high dose may be used for managing third stage of labour to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality due to APPH particularly, in the poor underdeveloped countries where, facilities to deliver in health centers, purchase and store the oxytocic ampoules or medically trained persons are not readily available in all places.
