PMID:  17578367     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of secondary postpartum hemorrhage that occurred 3 weeks after cesarean section requiring total abdominal hysterectomy is reported. The patient's history and pathologic features of the removed uterus did not allow the authors to clearly recognize a previous reported cause of this potentially life-threatening complication. Alternative causes of the non-union of the uterine incision are suggested.
