Results: The uterine packing was successful in controlling PPH in 94% cases. It was effective in 96.96% (32 out of 33) women with uterine atony, who did not respond to uterotonic drugs. It was also effective in 11cases of placental implantation site bleeding, and 3 cases of deranged coagulation function. In 3 cases it failed to control PPH and peripartum hysterectomy was done. The uterine pack was removed in 24-48 hours. 3 cases of febrile morbidity and 3 cases of caesarean section wound infection were noted. There was no maternal death. Conclusion: Uterine packing is a safe, quick and effective, conservative procedure for the control of postpartum haemorrhage, which shortens the hospital stay and avoids the need for more aggressive procedures.
