Abstract

Cesarean hysterectomy remains a life-saving surgery mostly performed under critical circumstances to control severe obstetric hemorrhage. Post-hysterectomy pelvic bleeding is a serious complication that may arise despite securing all accessible vascular pedicles. Pelvic compression presents a key last resort in the management of such challenging cases. No procedure-related intraoperative complications were encountered. One patient developed surgical site infection that was treated by antibiotics and secondary closure. In summary, we believe that the present balloon tamponade has employed a low-cost readily available equipment to provide a rapid and simple intervention which can be potentially lifesaving for women with pelvic hemorrhage post-hysterectom
