Abstract of case report

The B-Lynch surgical technique for the management of massive post partum haemorrhage (PPH) has been successfully used since 1989 where bleeding was due to uterine atony with failed conservative management. It allows for conservation of the uterus with subsequent future pregnancies. The application of the suture itself is away from the uterine cornua without major vessel or organ compromise. The procedure is far less complicated than more radical surgical techniques such as internal iliac arterial ligation or hysterectomy. The operating time is shorter as the procedure is fast and easy. In this report we present a follow up of a case with successful pregnancy ten years after PPH with the B-Lynch uterine compression suture to demonstrate no long term anatomical or clinical complications of this surgical technique ten years on.
