curettage to treat puerperal bleeding

OBJECTIVES: Approximately 1% of term deliveries are complicated by retained products of conception. Untreated, this condition may cause bleeding, infection and intrauterine adhesions. This study assessed whether performing routine bedside uterine ultrasound immediately after manual removal of the placenta reduced the occurrence of undiagnosed, retained products of conception and its associated complications. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective study was conducted using the records of patients who delivered and underwent manual removal of placenta at a single obstetrics center over a 6-year period...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To describe the incidence of uterine vascular malformations (UVMs) including uterine arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) in patients after abortion or delivery and in outpatients. DESIGN: Prospective study (Canadian Task Force classification II-3). SETTING: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital. PATIENTS: Six patients with a UVM including 1 with an AVM. INTERVENTIONS: Clinical screening of patients using transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography between April 2010 and March 2012...

The purpose of this retrospective study is to assess the radiological and clinical outcome of transcatheter embolization of acquired uterine vascular malformations in patients presenting with secondary postpartum or postabortion vaginal hemorrhage. In a cohort of 17 patients (mean age: 29.7 years; standard deviation: 4.23; range: 25-38 years) 18 embolization procedures were performed. Angiography demonstrated a uterine parenchymal hyperemia with normal drainage into the large pelvic veins ("low-flow uterine vascular malformation") in 83% (n=15) or a direct arteriovenous fistula ("high-flow uterine vascular malformation") in 17% (n=3)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy and clinical usefulness of high-resolution transvaginal duplex Doppler ultrasound in postpartum and post-abortion patients with excessive hemorrhage who are suspected of having residual trophoblast. METHODS: Forty-eight women with excessive hemorrhage referred for possible residual trophoblastic tissue were evaluated by transvaginal duplex Doppler ultrasonography. Based on two-dimensional imaging, the patients were divided prospectively into groups: women who had an empty uterus with a normal uterine cavity, those with a pure endometrial fluid collection and no echogenic foci, those who had a mixed endometrial fluid collection with foci of echogenicity, and those with intracavitary heterogeneous material with mixed echo patterns of fluid and solid components...

In 62 postpartum patients serial beta-HCG-measurements were performed. These tests show that beta-HCG should disappear entirely during the third week postpartum. Significant titers beyond this time are seen when placental tissue remains in utero. This condition may lead to late postpartum hemorrhage which is best treated by curettage. If there is only mild bleeding and beta-HCG-titers are negative, a hormonal curettage with subsequent estrogen administration (3 weeks) can be performed. In doing so, unnecessary and potentially harmful intrauterine manipulations can be avoided...
