The B-Lynch surgical technique for the management of massive postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) has been used successfully since 1989 in cases where bleeding was secondary to uterine atony with failed conservative management. It allows for conservation of the uterus for subsequent menstrual function and pregnancies. In this report, we present a follow up of a case with successful pregnancy ten years after PPH was managed with the B-Lynch uterine compression suture to demonstrate the long-term anatomical consequences of this operation. This case represents the longest follow up after the application of the B-Lynch suture (brace suture) technique for the control of massive PPH as an alternative to hysterectomy. Published data have confirmed that on the balance of probability, the B-Lynch surgical technique is safe, effective and free of short- and long-term complication.
