  1. 1. Dr. Mohamed El Sherbiny MD Ob.& Gyn Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH) Guidelines for Immediate Action “Part II ” Damietta Specialized Hospital Workshop 2-11-2013
  2. 2. Sources of Evidence PubMed Cochrane library SOGC Clinical Practice Guideline No. 189,2007 Committee, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine(SMFM), November 2010 RCOG Guideline 2005 & 2011( Placenta previa, & previa accreta) NICE Clinical Guideline, November 2011 (CS) Placenta Previa Accreta ACOG Committee 7-2012 Damietta Governorate experience (FIGO 10- 2012 ) UpToDate, Reaink , Augest 2013
  3. 3. What Is The Next Step if Balloon Tamponade Fails ? The following may be attempted, depending on clinical circumstances and available expertise: Haemostatic brace suturing (B-Lynch or modified compression sutures) Bilateral ligation of uterine arteries Bilateral ligation of internal iliac (hypogastric) arteries Selective arterial embolisation RCOG Guideline PPH No.52 May 2009 Grade C 4
  4. 4. Compression sutures, may be attempted as a first intervention, and if these fail, then uterine, utero-ovarian and hypogastric vessel ligation may be tried. If Balloon Tamponade Fails
  5. 5. Stepwise uterine artery ligation (SUAL) is the first-line surgical approach . If bleeding is not controlled by SUAL or no available expert to perform it, shift to use of uterine compression (Brace) suture technique is the second step. Jacob , UpToDate Aug. 2013 Grade C If Balloon Tamponade Fails
  6. 6. Intractable Atonic PPH Algorithm Vaginal delivery Failed Expertise Stepwise Uterine Arteries Ligation (SUAL) Balloon Tamponade Laparotomy ± Non-pneumatic anti-shock garment if available Failed : ±Internal iliac ligation -Hysterectomy Low experience or Failed SUAL : B-Lynch/Hayman ± sandwich
  7. 7. Uterine Compression (Brace) Sutures B-Lynch suture 1997 Hayman suture 2002 Sandwich 2007 (combined with Balloon tamponade)
  8. 8. Test For Uterine Compression Sutures  An assistant stands between the patient’s legs to determine and extent of the bleeding.  The uterus is then exteriorized and bimanual compression performed. • The Test is positive if the bleeding stops and the compression suture will work and stop the bleeding.
  9. 9. B-Lynch Suture
  10. 10. Anterior Posterior B-Lynch Suture
  11. 11. B-Lynch Suture Monocryl No.1 mounted on 90-cm curved blunt needle or other rapidly absorbable sutures B-Lynch & Shah, A Comprehensive Text Book of PPH 2nd Ed.2012

  13. 13. B-Lynch Technique
  14. 14. Simple, effective (91-99%) and cost-saving Fertility preserved and proven Mortality avoided World-wide application(1300 cases) and successful (only 19 failures reports. The B-Lynch surgical technique B-Lynch & Shah, A Comprehensive Text Book of PPH 2nd Ed.2012
  15. 15. Hayman Compression Suture Hayman et al Obst. Gynec. 2002,99;3;502-6 A number 2 Vicryl or Dexon suture on a straight, blunt needle is used to transfix the uterus from front to back, just above the reflection of the bladder and is then tied at the fundus of the uterus. This can be done as one suture on each side of the uterus, or more than one suture if the uterus is particularly broad,
  16. 16. Hayman Uterine Compression Suture Advantage  Uterine cavity not opened  Probably quicker and easier to apply Disadvantage  Uterine cavity not explored under direct vision  No feed-back data on fertility outcome  Morbidity feed-back data limited  Unequal tension leads may to segmented  Ischemia secondary to slippage of suture – ‘shouldering’ with venous obstruction B-Lynch & Shah, A Comprehensive Text Book of PPH 2nd Ed.2012
  17. 17. Hayman Uterine Compression Suture El Sherbiny
  18. 18. Combination of External Compression & Internal Tamponade “ Uterine Sandwich”  Indicated for patients with persistent bleeding from uterine atony refractory to medical therapy and has negative or unsatisfactory compression suture test .  The balloon is inflated with median volume of (range 60 to 250 mL) to avoid "undue blanching at the compression suture sites," which might lead to uterine laceration or necrosis Bakri ,UpToDate,Mar.,2013

  22. 22. Stepwise Devascularization
  23. 23. Stepwise Uterine Devascularization This technique entails five successive steps, so if bleeding is not controlled by one step the next step is taken until bleeding stops. The steps are (1)unilateral uterine vessel ligation, (2) bilateral uterine vessel ligation (3) low uterine vessel ligation (4) unilateral ovarian vessel ligation (5) bilateral ovarian vessel ligation. AbdRabbo ,Am J Obstet Gynecol. 1994 Sep;171(3):694-
  24. 24. Advantages over internal iliac ligation: Easier dissection. Lower complication rates. More distal occlusion of arterial supply with less potential for rebleeding because of collaterals High reported rates of success in controlling haemorrhaging.

  62. 62. Overall, grayscale U/S is sufficient to diagnose PPA , with a sensitivity of 77–87%, specificity of 96–98%, a positive predictive value of 65–93%). The use of power Doppler, color Doppler, or 3D imaging does not significantly improve the diagnostic sensitivity compared with that achieved by grayscale U/S alone ACOG Committee 7-2012 Positive Doppler data confirm the diagnosis
  63. 63. It is still debated.

  111. 111.  A vertical skin incision is optimal, Pfannenstiel incision is not sufficient.  Classical CS-Hysterectomy  After delivery of the infant, the cord is cut, the uterine incision is oversewn circumferentially to decrease blood loss, and hysterectomy is performed. Hysterectomy: The Technique
  112. 112. Peripartum Hysterectomy  The hysterectomy Should be Total  It should be simple , rapid, with minimal dead space and raw surfaces (fear of coagulopathy).  Tow to three drainages
  113. 113. Inadequate exposure or traction may lead to vascular or ureteral injury Balfour abdominal retractor Hysterectomy: The Technique
  114. 114. Hysterectomy: The Technique  If the bladder does not dissected easily, it should be opened at the dome. Palpation and inspection of the posterior bladder from the interior makes it easier to find the dissection plane  Consultation with a gynecologic oncologist or urologist is warranted if the surgeon is not familiar with bladder surgery.
  115. 115. Post Hysterectomy Bleeding • Diffuse post hysterectomy bleeding may be controlled by abdominal packing to allow time for normalization of the woman’s haemodynamic and coagulation status. (II-3) • The pack composed of gauze in a sterile plastic bag brought out through the vagina and placed under tension. This pack is also known as a parachute, mushroom, or umbrella pack.

  116. 116. Assembly of a pelvic pressure pack to control hemorrhage. A sterile x- ray cassette cover drape (plastic bag) is filled with gauze rolls tied end-to-end. The length of gauze is then folded into a ball (A) and placed within the cassette bag in such a way that the gauze can be unwound eventually with traction on the tail (D). Intravenous tubing (E) is tied to the exiting part of the neck (C) and connected to a 1-liter bag (G). Once in place, the gauze pack (A) fills the pelvis to tamponade vessels and the narrow upper neck (B) passes to exit the vagina (C). The IV bag is suspended off the foot of the bed to sustain pressure of the gauze pack on bleeding sites.
