Abstract

Uterine hemorrhage is a common problem at the time and after caesarean section especially in a repeat caesarean section, where the surgical techniques used widely differ. An inadequate hemostasis of the uterine incision and the vesical-uterine vessels during CS, in closed and open visceral peritoneum, could lead to early hemorrhagic compliances, to control by further surgery. We present the case of a 31-year-old woman undergoing a scheduled repeat emergency caesarean section. She had progressive bleeding from the incision site during the first post-operative days, since in third day she developed a hemorrhagic shock for a hemoperitoneum. Patient was re-operated and bleeding at uterine site incision was not controlled by traditional management including intravenous oxytocin and ergometrine, intramyometrial ergometrin and local hemostatic sutures, but was successfully controlled by equine collagen patch coated with human coagulation factors. Her postoperative period was uneventful and she and her baby were discharged in good condition on day 5. Both of them were doing well on a follow up visit after 1 month.
