Background: PPH is one of the most dreaded third stage complication and is one of the leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. Most of the deaths are due to limited availability of pharmacological agents and absent skills to manage PPH. The basis of the study is to introduce a novel technique of application of paracervical clamps transvaginally for temporary occlusion of uterine arteries which represent 90% of blood flow to the uterus. Methods: A prospective study of patients with PPH…

Paracervical clamps for treatment of uncontrolled postpartum haemorrhage: a novel technique

Application of paracervical clamps transvaginally for temporary occlusion of uterine arteries which represent 90% of blood flow to the uterus is an effective, simple and minimally invasive surgical technique for avoiding excess blood loss in mild to moderate postpartum haemorrhage.

Internal iliac artery ligation for arresting postpartum haemorrhage

It is suggested that when all other measures fail; in the management of women with severe PPH IIAL should be considered promptly and the use of rectal misoprostol 800-1000 mcg before resorting to IIAL is suggested.

A study of risk factors of postpartum hemorrhage and indications for caesarean section

The prevalence of anemia among women at term was found to be 43%, and the different medical high risk factors included human immunodeficiency virus positive (asymptomatic diagnosed during pregnancy), Hepatitis B antigen positive, cardiovascular risk, hypothyroidism, epilepsy observed in the groups.

There should also be a low threshold for prophylactic use of balloon tamponade in women at high risk of PPH, considering its ease of use, low complication rate and ability to maintain reproductive ability.

The most commonly reported causes of haemorrhage were uterine atony and morbidly adherent placenta and women were not universally managed with uterotonic therapies.

There is a call to develop high‐quality front‐line obstetric services that can deal rapidly with unexpected haemorrhages as well as minimising blood loss at critical times: major abruption, placenta praevia, and caesarean for prolonged labour.

Efficacy of tranexamic acid in reducing blood loss after cesarean section

Tranexamic acid statistically reduces blood loss from end to 2 h after CS and its use was not associated with any side effects or complications, Consequently, tranexamic Acid can be used safely and effectively to reduce bleeding resulting from CS.

Clinical observation of blood loss reduced by tranexamic acid during and after caesarian section: a multi-center, randomized trial.
