Objective: To find out the success rate of uterovaginal packing of Atonic Uterus in a tertiary care hospital, in low resource setting.
Methods: This was a interventional prospective trial conducted in Gynae department of Lady Reading Hospital from January 2019 to December 2019. Our study included those patients with PPH not responding to medical treatment in vaginal delivery. Patients in shock with PPH and PPH after Csection were excluded from the study. The study was approved by the ethical committee of hospital.
Results: In our study 250 patients with Atonic Uterus with PPH with failed medical treatment were done uterovaginal packing, the success rate after 12 hours was 86.4%, in rest of the patients PPH was controlled by second line surgical intervention in 34 cases (13.6%), B Lynch was done in 18 (7.2%) cases, subtotal hysterectomies 13 (5.2%) cases and internal Iliac ligation in 3 cases (1.2%)
Conclusion: Uterovaginal packing is an effective, easy, quick and life saving method in the control of PPH in low resource setting.
