Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Postpartum hemorrhage remains a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Four cases utilizing the B-Lynch technique for control of hemorrhage secondary to uterine atony are presented. The B-Lynch technique appears to be effective in controlling postpartum hemorrhage. More experience is needed before the B-Lynch technique can be accepted as routine practice.
