OBJECTIVE: To evaluate arterial balloon occlusion of the internal iliac arteries for treatment of life-threatening massive postpartum haemorrhage. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study at a tertiary referral perinatal centre in a teaching hospital in the Netherlands. All patients who delivered in our hospital between January 1998 and January 2008 were included in the study. A retrospective analysis of all cases of postpartum haemorrhage was performed. All 15 consecutive cases of massive postpartum haemorrhage were selected from an electronic database. The patients with massive postpartum haemorrhage (blood loss>5000 ml) and the patients with postpartum haemorrhage treated with arterial balloon occlusion of internal iliac arteries were analyzed. RESULTS: In the study period 1246 (7%) of all 17,308 deliveries were complicated by postpartum haemorrhage. 15 (0.1%) patients suffered from massive postpartum haemorrhage. They were all treated with balloon occlusion of the internal iliac arteries. Hysterectomy was performed in 4 patients. All patients survived without any complications. CONCLUSION: Arterial balloon occlusion of the internal iliac arteries is a safe and in most cases effective procedure for treatment of massive life-threatening postpartum haemorrhage.
