Objective. To evaluate uterine balloon tamponade in the management of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). Method and study design. Prospective audit. Setting. St George's Hospital, London. Population. Twenty‐seven women with intractable PPH managed by uterine balloon tamponade using a Sengstaken‐Blakemore Oesophageal Catheter (SBOC) when medical management was not effective, and prior to surgical intervention. Main outcome measures. Success rate of the SBOC in arresting hemorrhage. The need for… Expand
Balloon tamponade for the management of postpartum uterine hemorrhage
TLDR
The Bakri balloon may be performed as a first line of treatment for PPH resistant to uterotonic agents, and can be used not only in tertiary centers but also in limited-resource centers. Expand
