Abstract Bladder-flap haematoma (BFH) is a puerperal complication after caesarean section; it consists of a blood collection between the bladder and the lower uterine segment, in the vesico-uterine space, and it results from bleeding at the uterine suture. Ten symptomatic women were hospitalized and underwent a laparoscopy performed by tumescence incision, bladder wall detachment from the vesico-uterine space, drainage of the fluid material inside the collection, washing of the haematoma site and peritoneal suturing. After seven days, the time it takes to develop a BFH after caesarean section, laparoscopically collected dates were, on average: Total laparoscopy time 31 min, intrasurgical blood loss 36.5 ml, two patients with a draining catheter in the pelvis, two women who developed post-operative urinary symptoms; the duration of hospital stay was 1.3 days. None of the women had complications during the post-dismissal follow-up, and no further therapeutic intervention was required. No clear, defined and standardized protocols exist for the clinical and surgical management of post-caesarean section BFH; the conservative laparoscopic approach proposed would offer women a potentially safe and feasible minimally invasive treatment, reserving hysterectomy for severe uterine necrosis, myometritis or abscess formations. These findings should be confirmed by large extensive trials. This article was published in Minim Invasive Ther Allied Technol and referenced in Journal of Clinical Case Reports
