Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Emergency peripartum hysterectomy is a challenging but life-saving procedure. In this descriptive study carried out in a rural Nigerian hospital, we found an incidence of emergency peripartum hysterectomy of 5.4 per 1000 deliveries and a significant association with abdominal mode of delivery, unbooked status, previous caesarean section and placenta previa. The most common indications for peripartum hysterectomy were placenta accreta (47.6%) and uterine rupture (28.6%). There were five (23.8%) maternal deaths and other complications included sepsis (five), bladder injury (three) and prolonged hospital stay (11).
